About

 Donna Martin teaches across areas of human and veterinary nutritional physiology and metabolism as well as Pathophysiology of the human gastrointestinal system. She is the Year 2 Study Period one coordinator for the Veterinary Science Degree program and also coordinates the Gastrointestinal Medicine and Nutrition Module as part of the Year 2 Medical Sciences Degree program. Recent work for her PhD revolved around the nutritional and anthelmintic properties of Calliandra Calothyrsus condensed tannins in the gastrointestinal tract of sheep, encompassing both in vitro and in vivo studies.

Genetics and nutrigenomics of intramuscular fat, fat melting point and meat eating quality in Australian White Lambs

Indicative Funding
$200,000 over 3 years
Summary
The over-arching aim of this research project is to enhance the sustainable production of Australian White (AW) sheep meat with superior eating qualities and healthier nutritional composition without compromising animal health, performance and welfare. Specific research objectives include: (1) Nutrigenomics analysis of intramuscular fat content, fat melting point, fatty acid composition and marbling gene expressions in grazing and supplemented sheep. (2) Sensory evaluation of meat eating quality of AW lamb in city restaurants (3) Next generation sequencing and creating of a genomic DNA bank of the AW lamb with a unique breed signature.
