Natural ice cream future awaits as vanillin compound isolated
The video has been picked up by at least 100 international news sites, including the Huffington Post.
Nethaji Gallage, describes her research on
elucidating the properties of biosynthetic
pathways of vanillin.
This will allow researchers to replace a
part of synthetically made vanillin, which
is synthetically produced using fossil fuels
today, with sustainable production
systems such as yeast.
Eucalyptus study could be key to koala survival, says researcher

By understanding how they is able to
digest lignin found in eucalyptus, Elizabeth hopes to understand how koala may be
able to deal with the impacts of climate
change and thereby boost the health of
