A massive global study involving 58,000 cattle has pinpointed the genes that influence the complex genetic trait of height in cattle, opening the door for researchers to use the same approach to map high-value traits including ...
Herbicide-resistant weeds are threatening food security, but University of Queensland researchers are one step closer to a solution after a new discovery.
Laws intended to protect Queensland's most-threatened forests are failing, with the most vulnerable forests falling even faster than other forests.
An antibiotic overlooked since its discovery 40 years ago could help develop new drugs against life-threatening infections caused by some of the world's most dangerous superbugs.
The continued survival of one of Australia's rarest rodents, the water mouse, could hinge on significantly increasing the size of development buffer zones around their habitats.
Researchers say almost half of Australian families tracked in a 30-year study have experienced poverty at least once.
Wild rice growing in northern Australia's crocodile-infested waters could help boost global food security, say University of Queensland researchers who have mapped its genetic family tree.
A University of Queensland discovery has deepened our understanding of the genetic mutations that arise in different tissues, and how these are inherited.
