Complex examine into wool technological know-how and know-how is resulting in a greater realizing of the homes of wool. Wool is more and more being visible as a excessive functionality fibre, with new ameliorations and purposes. Advances in wool expertise offers a entire account of those advancements and concepts. half one comprises advances that experience happened within the construction and processing of wool. issues variety from the development in wool spinning, weaving and colouration, to environmental offer chain administration and to the function of genetic engineering in enhanced wool creation. half reports new wool items and purposes. Chapters comprise the creation of brighter and whiter wool, excessive functionality wool blends and wool for attire. With its exclusive editors and array of foreign participants, this publication can be a invaluable reference for manufacturers, brands, outlets and all these wishing to enhance and comprehend advancements in wool know-how. it is going to even be appropriate for researchers in or academia.

Example text

The information provided by these test specifications is applied in two ways: • • to predict the performance of the wool during processing so that it meets the specifications provided by the processor; and to establish market value of the wool and thereby determine the price to be paid to the producer. 6. A small proportion of the Australian clip is also certified for colour. This is in contrast with the New Zealand clip where almost 100% is measured for colour. Similarly 70% of Australian wool is measured for staple length and strength whereas only a minor proportion is measured in New Zealand.

Another consequence of transgene expression that has been observed is that expression of endogenous genes is reduced, presumably because the protein synthetic machinery can be overwhelmed by the transgene expression. Future problems in transgenic research to be solved are to produce transgene constructs that: • • have promoters that are active at the correct time of cortical differentiation; include DNA elements (microRNAs) found in the genome that can control gene expression. 7 (a) Transmission electron micrograph of a wool fibre from a transgenic sheep expressing a transgene for KAP6 protein directed to the wool cortex.
