Genomics, gene-editing and the Blue Revolution
University of Melbourne research finds genomics and gene editing is giving aquaculture a more precise way of making disease resistant fish and shellfish.
Modelling the spread of COVID-19
Forecasting the spread of COVID-19 including undetected cases is difficult but important; a University of Melbourne scientist has an app to track the outlook.
Speeding natural selection in the name of conservation
University of Melbourne scientists are using breeding to genetically adapt quolls to resist toxic cane toads – if it works it may help other endangered species
Move it or lose it: Exploiting genetic diversity to fight extinction
Earth is facing a catastrophic extinction event, and to avoid this we need to think differently about species conservation
The genetic backburn
A new study is proposing a radical method for limiting the spread of an invasive species, like cane toads or tramp ants: introducing more of them.
