Biosolar research at ANU focuses on plant science strengths in the Research School of Biology. Research is conducted by World leading researchers in photosynthesis, plant physiology and biotechnology and high throughput analysis.
Biosolar research at ANU boasts the presence of two ARC Centres of Excellence: the Centre for Integrative Legume Research and Plant Energy Biology.
ANU hosts major facilities for structural detection and quantification of molecules (mass spectrometry, NMR) as well as providing world class facilities for the controlled growth of plant and algal materials.
Biosolar researchers collaborate with leading European, Japanese and United States groups.
Biosolar research aims to develop high lipid producing microalgal strains for large scale cultivation.
