Introduction

I completed my Bachelor’s degree in vegetable genetic and production in 1985 and a Master of Science in 1988 from the Nanjing Agricultural University, followed by 7 years in vegetable breeding and plant transgenic research in Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Science and Beijing University, China. I was awarded an international post-graduate research scholarship from Murdoch University in 1996 to pursue my PhD project entitled “Genetic engineering towards CMV resistance in narrow-leafed lupins”. Upon completion of my PhD, I was employed as a research scientist for Grain Biotech Australia, working on transgenic wheat research for barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) resistance, salt tolerance, molecular pharming, and the development of molecular markers for wheat breeding program.

I joined the Molecular Epidemiology Group led by Prof Una Ryan in Feb. 2007 and had been worked on a range of projects in molecular parasitology and molecular microbiology, mainly focus on the pathogens of Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Coccidia, E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Chlamydia, Yersinia and Coxiella burnetii in livestock and wild-life. I recently move back in wheat research in the wheat research group led by Professor Wujun Ma in Murdoch University.

Molecular characterisation of the NAM-1 genes in bread wheat in Australia

Crop and Pasture Science

The wheat NAM-B1 and NAM-A1 genes are positively associated with grain protein content (GPC) in wheat. We conducted molecular characterisation of the NAM-1 genes in 51 Australian wheat varieties (Triticum aestivum L.), with the aim of improving GPC and nitrogen-usage efficiency in Australian wheat. In summary, the wild type NAM-B1 gene, which originated from Israel, was identified in two Australian wheat varieties. Five varieties contained a deletion allele, whereas the majority (43) harboured a non-functional NAM-B1 allele and one variety contained both functional and non-functional alleles. Twenty-six Australian wheat varieties contained the NAM-A1a haplotype, which was similar to its well-characterised homoeolog NAM-B1 wild type and associated with high GPC. The NAM-D1 gene in the 51 wheat varieties was also characterised, and no gene variation in the exon regions was noted; only two single-nucleotide polymorphisms in introns 1 and 2 were found among the 51 varieties.

Faecal shedding of pathogenic Yersinia enterocolitica determined by qPCR for yst virulence gene associated with reduced live weight but not diarrhoea in prime lambs

Preventive Veterinary Medicine

Associations between faecal shedding of pathogenic Yersinia enterocolitica (based on the yst virulence gene) with growth, carcass weight and diarrhoea were investigated using an observational longitudinal study of 1200 crossbred prime (meat) lambs on eight Australian farms. Live weight, breech faecal soiling score (scale 1-5) and faecal consistency score (FCS; scale 1-5) were recorded, and faecal samples collected from each lamb on three sampling occasions; weaning (≈12 weeks of age), post-weaning (≈19 weeks) and pre-slaughter (≈29 weeks). Hot standard carcass weight was measured at slaughter. Faecal samples were screened for presence and concentration of pathogenic Y. enterocolitica using quantitative PCR. Associations of pathogenic Y. enterocolitica detection and shedding intensity with lamb health and production were assessed using general linear models (carcass weight), linear mixed effects models (live weight, FCS and breech soiling score) and non-parametric tests (FCS and breech soiling score). Prevalence for non-pelleted faeces (FCS ≥ 3.0) and diarrhoea (FCS ≥ 4.0) were compared with the two-tailed z-test, odds ratios and relative risk. Lambs shedding pathogenic Y. enterocolitica were 3.78 kg lighter post-weaning (P < 0.001) and 2.61 kg lighter pre-slaughter (P = 0.035) compared to lambs in which pathogenic Y. enterocolitica was not detected. Higher faecal concentration of pathogenic Y. enterocolitica was associated with lower live weight (P < 0.001). There was no association between pathogenic Y. enterocolitica detection and carcass weight. Overall, there was no evidence of association between pathogenic Y. enterocolitica detection and diarrhoea (higher FCS, higher risk for non-pelleted faeces or diarrhoea, or higher breech soiling score). Only one flock had increased relative risk for non-pelleted faeces associated with pathogenic Y. enterocolitica detection, and one other flock had increased relative risk for diarrhoea associated with pathogenic Y. enterocolitica detection. This is the first report of an association between reduced sheep live weight and pathogenic Y. enterocolitica based on the presence of the yst gene for heat stable enterotoxin determined by qPCR in sheep. Notably, impacts on live weight were observed in the absence of diarrhoea.
