PhD Student Ana Hranilovic has published her work on the yeast Lachancea thermotolerans (formerly Kluyveromyces thermotolerans) as a species with remarkable, yet underexplored, biotechnological potential. To gain an insight into L. thermotolerans population diversity and structure, 172 isolates sourced from diverse habitats worldwide were analysed using a set of 14 microsatellite markers. The resultant clustering revealed that the evolution of L. thermotolerans has been […]
ARC TC-IWP would like to congratulate PhD student Zelmari Coetzee who submitted her thesis on the 4th of August 2017. The title of her thesis is: The sugar-potassium nexus within the grape berry.
Five ARC TC-IWP students attended the 10th In Vino Analytica Scientia Symposium held in Salamanca, Spain, from the 17th until the 20th of July. The IVAS 2017 conference focused on environmental concerns in the vineyard and winery, and all aspects of wine science: metabolomics, proteomics, chemical and biochemical reactions, chemometrics, microbiology and sensory evaluation. Chao Dang, Chen Liang, Olaf […]
Training Centre PhD student Zelmari Coetzee from Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga is visiting Adelaide to work at Prof Steve Tyerman’s lab at the Waite research precinct. While she is visiting, Zelmari is focusing her work on the molecular background of the sugar-potassium nexus within the grape berry. To further investigate if there is a relationship […]
Dr Renata Ristic and Lieke van der Hulst have been invited by the Chilean wine industry to share their knowledge on smoke taint. Following bushfires in several wine regions throughout Chile an invitation was extended from Vinos de Chile to the ARC-TC IWP to share knowledge on the effects of smoke exposure on grapevine health, grape […]
ARC TW-IWP attended the 10th International Symposium on Grapevine Physiology and Biotechnology, Verona
Zelmari Coetzee attended the 10th International Symposium on Grapevine Physiology and Biotechnology in Verona, Italy, from the 13th until the 18th of June 2016 and visited 4 research organisations in Italy and Portugal. Upon receiving travel grants from the ARC-TC IWP as well as the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre (NWGIC), Zelmari travelled to Verona to attend the […]
