    • Application of molecular markers to sugarcane breeding 

      Jackson, P; Aitken, K; Baker, P; Foreman, J; Hewitt, M; Luckell, J; Piperidis, G; Li, J; Morgan, T; Wei, X (2006)
      The CRC SIIB marker application research aims to develop and evaluate ways to apply DNA markers to Australian sugarcane breeding programs to improve breeding, selection and fast release of high performing cultivars. This ...
    • Introgression of new genes from Saccharum officinarum 

      Jackson, P; Piperidis, G; Aitken, K; Li, J; Morgan, T; Foreman, J; Hewitt, M; McIntyre, L; Berding, N (SRDC, 2004)
      Modern sugarcane cultivars are derived from two main ancestral species: Saccharum officinarum, which is the main source of high sucrose levels, and S. spontaneum. Only a small number of clones of either species have ever ...
    • Understanding the reproductive biology and ecology of sugarcane to manage the safe release of genetically modified cultivars 

      Bonnett, G; Olivares-Villegas; Berding, N; Morgan, T; Collins, P (2010)
      This project set out to obtain basic and previously unavailable information on the ecology and sexual reproduction of sugarcane primarily so advances in sugarcane biotechnology can be utilised to the benefit of the Australian ...
