Plant Biology

At Shelston IP, we recognise the growing importance that Australia’s agricultural sector will play in maintaining global food security and meeting the demands of a booming Asian market.


Australia’s unique global position allows counter seasonal supply to northern hemisphere markets and our proximity to Asia enables us to capitalise on the market demands of the growing Asian middle class. In response to these demands, IP is certain to play an increasingly important role in protecting agricultural innovation in Australia.

We have specialist post-doctoral research expertise in plant biology and assist local and international clients to obtain, manage and enforce their IP rights in this rapidly growing field.

Our professionals have expertise in several facets of plant biology including:

  • physiology
  • molecular biology
  • molecular genetics
  • population genetics
  • high-throughput sequencing
  • tissue culture
  • transgene expression
  • herbicide analysis
  • breeding.
