Cell biology and genetics

Cell biology and genetics - All living things are all made up of cells. In order to develop new biotechnologies it is important to understand more about cells and the genetic information they contain.

Making proteins by genetic engineering:  Proteins are produced by living cells and have a huge number of different functions. They act as transporters and messengers around the body, control growth, help keep us healthy, and are the building blocks for body parts like muscles.

Biological Control of Possums

Biological control of possums - Possums are one of New Zealand's biggest pests. Currently they are controlled by poisoning and trapping, but this is expensive and ongoing. Biological control has the potential to provide novel ways to control possums, and

Amazing Ryegrass - Ryegrass is an important food for cattle, but it is also a favourite food of competing insects. Can biological control offer a solution?

Biocontrol of the New Zealand pea crab - Oliver Trottier and Jessica Feickert (Leigh Marine Laboratory) have been working to understand the biology of the New Zealand pea crab, which is a parasite of green-lipped mussels. Using this knowledge, they hope to develop biocontrol strategies to limit pea crab infestation on mussel farms.

Biocontrol is a biological approach to controlling a pest organism. It uses other organisms, or active ingredients from organisms, as ways to control the pest. Biocontrol of pests provides an alternative to chemical control (such as insecticides) and physical control (such as manual removal of weeds).

Gum leaf skeletoniser - Scientists at Scion (the forestry research institute) have released a tiny wasp that will help get rid of an Australian pest – the gum leaf skeletoniser.

This is a photograph of a gum leaf skeletoniser, capable of devouring large amounts of gum leaves, is widespread in the greater Auckland region and has been recorded in a number of locations in the Waikato, New Zealand.
