Professor Melissa Fitzgerald teaches us about the unique properties of starch. Starch is a polymeric carbohydrate that is usually produced at night; giving it a specific semi-crystalline structure. When these semi-crystalline regions are introduced to heat and water they become soluble, undergoing recrystallisation when cooled (glass transition), but if you continue to add heat and water the starch granules bind the water and cause gelatinisation.

With time running out for reefs around the world, scientists and marine biologists are stretching the limits, developing new techniques to save these precious structures and the important ecosystems they support.
Marine biologist, Professor Emma Johnstone, explores the effects of global warming on the future of the world largest and most complex reef ecosystem, the Great Barrier Reef. The question is, as the rate of coral bleaching increases and global carbon emissions remain unwavering, do we use science to intervene in an attempt design more robust stains of coral?
Professor Emma Johnstone meets geoscientist Jody Webster, from the University of Sydney, to explore the history of the Great Barrier Reef. Using multi-beam sonar images to map the reef, Jody can identify patterns in its geological history and pinpoint various life cycles. According to material evidence, the reef has undergone many changes, deaths and renewals, but none have occurred as suddenly those in recent years.
Coral bleaching occurs when the relationship between algae symbionts and the coral is disrupted, which happens when the plant-cells (algae symbionts) are exposed to high temperatures, causing the algae to stop photosynthesising and produce an irritant. The coral then begins to reject the plant-cells, losing its colour and primary energy source. Once the coral has lost its life-giving plant-cells, it will eventually die.

Most corals only spawn once a year, the only window scientists have to trial hybridisation. Corals release tiny bundles of eggs and sperm that float to the surface of the ocean to break up and fertilise. Within a week, the fertilised eggs develop into planula larvae. Planula, no bigger than a grain of rice, must then begin searching for a suitable location and an algal partner (algae symbionts). Ruth Gates believes this moment holds the key for breeding hardier reefs.
The opening sequence shows a divide between the gentle, lavish and privately educated lifestyle of the wealthy, and the chaotic, harsh and publically educated environment of the poor.
