This could potentially increase oil harvests by more than 50 per cent, she says, or even more if they are able to grow fat trees with dense heartwood, and stimulate oil production at a younger age.

Liz also hopes the findings, published this week in the journal Plos One, will lead to the production of a compound that could be used to "stretch out" natural sandalwood oil by increasing its volume.

"Sandalwood oil, extracted from the heartwood in tree stems and roots, is highly sought after by the fragrance and perfume industry," says lead researcher Dr Liz Barbour, at UWA in Perth.

Doubling production of sandalwood oilNow that they have discovered some of the genes responsible for the production of the sweet smelling oil, Liz's team believe they may be able to genetically engineer trees that always produce oil Converse All Star Shoes Clearance

A large plantation in WA's Kimberley region planted in 1999 has begun to mature this year, and in time the processing plant attached to it may produce up to 60 per cent of the entire world supply. However, the amount of oil produced by individual trees is "hugely variable", says Liz.

as sandalwood remains one of the world's most sought after essential oils, scenting everything from Chanel N5 to joss sticks.

The compounds that produce the fragrance of sandalwood oil have such a complex structure that it is not currently possible to synthesise them artificially. This means Converse All Star Black Monochrome Low Top Sneakers

These advances may be only three years away, say the scientists, if the team can secure funding to continue their research.
