We wish to develop methods to determine the qualitative differences in
the composition of ovine skins at various stages of processing and to
relate these to the different properties of the skins. Once suitable
methods have been developed, they will be used to monitor skins that
have been subjected to various treatments.

This project involves working with a team of experienced scientists at
the Leather and Shoe Research Association of New Zealand, to develop
methods to alter the properties of sheep skin in order to make it
suitable for the manufacture of new products.

The Institute of Molecular Biosciences has a strong research focus on
cell and molecular biology with a vibrant interdisciplinary research
culture. There are excellent research facilities available in the Institute including 'state of the art' facilities for microscopy
(MMIC), DNA Sequencing and structural biology. The Institute supports
five Science majors: Biochemistry, Genetics, Plant Biology,
Microbiology and Biological Sciences. It is located on the Manawatu campus of Massey University located in Palmerston North, New Zealand
