Biomass Research Project Can Create ‘Super Spaghetti’
Univ. of Adelaide researchers are working with colleagues in Italy to produce better quality pasta that also adds greater value to human health.
Two research projects- being conducted by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls at the university’s Waite Campus- will start next month in collaboration with researchers from the Italian universities of Bari and Molise. The aim of the ARC Centre of Excellence is to look at the fundamental role of cell walls (biomass) in plants and discover how they can be better utilized. Both of these new projects will investigate key aspects of the cell walls in durum wheat, which is commonly used for making pasta.
