Hop tetraploid induction: The cones of female hop are important to the brewing industry. In conjunction with Hop Products Australia this project utilises an efficient colchicine-mediated technique developed in our lab for the in vitro induction of hop tetraploids and confirmation by flow cytometry for use in the breeding program.
Hop mutagenesis: Hop plants are vital to the brewing industry. Their main commercial products are alpha-acids & oils which contribute to the bitter taste and aroma of beer. In conjunction with the Hop Products Australia induced mutagenesis is used to alter the genetic make-up of hops to obtain varieties with desirable characteristics for current and new markets.
