Project summary

Livestock production and other sectors of the livestock supply chain contribute significantly to regional communities and the overall Australia economy. This project aims to use state-of-the-art nanotechnology to improve livestock healthcare through the following aspects: 1) developing a safe and efficient alternative (antibacterial nano-formulation) to antibiotic supplements in animal nutrition products; 2) generating novel nano-pesticides with improved safety and performance for livestock pest control; 3) engineering nano-digestive enzymes to address small animal digestive problems.
