Crop breeding and phenomics research
Over 100 cotton varieties
Australian cotton has the highest yields in the world, and 100 per cent of it is currently grown from CSIRO varieties – we've released 113 since 1984.
Machine-learning for crop breeding
We're harnessing genomics and machine-learning to develop crops better adapted to Australian conditions.
Breeding wheat with MAGIC
CSIRO plant scientists are using MAGIC, an innovative technique to increase the speed and efficiency of wheat breeding.
PhenoMobile - Tech-enabled phenotyping
PhenoMobile® technology, a non-destructive and ground-based system, enables accurate, timely, and high throughput data acquisition of crop phenotypes.
The Phenopod is an instrumented, climate controlled greenhouse with a state-of-the-art, automated high throughput phenotyping tool and data analytics.
We are using mass spectrometry (MS) and proteomics to help identify key proteins that will benefit Australia's livestock and plant industries, and improve human health.
Silencing genes with RNAi
Australian RNAi technology: silencing gene expression for plant, animal and human health science
