We're FORC-ed!

So now we have no end of FORC jokes here, as we have launched our new ARC Industrial Tranformation Training Centre: The Food Omics Research Centre (FORC). The aim of our Centre, led by Professor Paul Haynes is to develop a molecular technology platform enabling the next revolution in the food industry. One of my PhD students, Hasinaka, is working within this Centre to investigate whether a sugar cane fibre-based dietary supplement can improve your digestive health through the changing the microbial composition of your gut. Something, I'll probably talk further about at a later opportunity.

Using omics technologies to improve the process of taking food production from "field to fork"
