I cut my writing teeth in the fast-paced world of newspaper journalism and scored my science communication credentials working for Scitech and The University of Western Australia. I cover science and travel… and occasionally stray into other areas too. I’ve been doing this freelance thing for seven years and I love it.
Beer – Humanity’s First Biotechnology Venture🍻🔬🦠
Researchers from Edith Cowan University are now using a precision technique called Mass Spectrometry to measure the proteins in beer. It has been found that the protein components in the grain called barley are responsible for most of the flavor, however proteins also interact with other small molecules to produce haze, which is generally undesirable in a lager. This technology can help to make sure food is safe and sustainable and tastes good.
