My research focuses on the biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology of factors that cause deterioration of grain quality prior to harvest or that influence marketability of Australian wheat. Enzymes, chemical constituents, QTL, genes & environmental factors involved in determining: a) quality traits such as colour of Asian noodles and b) resistance to grain defects such as sprouting and black point or absence of late maturity alpha-amylase (LMA). Efficient screening technologies, including molecular markers, for particular traits and improved germplasm for wheat breeders.Bridge the interface between breeders and molecular biologists.

  • Preharvest sprouting and resistance to preharvest sprouting in white-grained wheat
  • Grain dormancy
  • Late maturity alpha-amylase
  • Black point
  • Colour and colour stability of wheat flour and Asian noodles (xanthophylls, flavonoids, polyphenol oxidase, peroxidase, lipoxygenase)
  • High lutein wheat – products (noodles and breads)

Elimination of Grain Defects in Wheat – preharvest sprouting (PHS), black point (BP), late a-amylase activity (LMA).

  • Introgress resistance to sprouting (grain dormancy) into locally adapted cultivars.
  • Assist wheat breeders to improve tolerance to sprouting and black point and eliminate late maturity alpha-amylase activity (LMA).
  • Develop improved and efficient screening technologies, including molecular markers.
  • Understand the genetic, biochemical, molecular and environmental mechanisms involved.
  • Screen advanced breeding lines from Australian wheat breeding entities for PHS, LMA & BP, providing information for growers and supporting data for  new variety release and classification (LMA).

Improving the colour and colour stability of Asian noodles.

  • Characterise the grain and flour constituents that contribute to colour and colour stability in white salted (WSN) and yellow alkaline (YAN) noodles.
  • Develop phenotype screening based on small-scale noodle sheets and measurement of individual constituents: xanthophyll content (lutein), flavonoid (apigenin-C-diglycoside) content, polyphenol oxidase (PPO) activity, non-PPO darkening, peroxidase activity and lipoxygenase activity.
  • Develop molecular markers for noodle colour traits.
  • Understand genetic, molecular and environmental control of synthesis of colour compounds.

High lutein (yellow pigment) wheat for production of additive-free yellow alkaline noodles and improved eye health in humans.

  • Bread wheat containing > 6 - 8ug lutein/g flour (current varieties – 1-1.5 ug/g)
  • High lutein combined with low lipoxygenase and low polyphenol oxidase
  • Bioavailability of lutein and lutein esters from wheat-based foods
