Novel gene for salt tolerance found in wild soybean (7/22/2014)

A team of researchers from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, BGI and other institutes have identified a gene of wild soybean linked to salt tolerance, with implication for improving this important crop to grow in saline soil. This study published online in Nature Communications provides an effective strategy to unveil novel genomic information for crop improvement. ...> Full Article


Great tasting low-fat cheeses and cakes could soon be on the menu (7/21/2014)

Low-fat cheeses and cakes that are just as tempting as full-fat equivalents could be heading for supermarket shelves, thanks to fresh insights into how proteins can replace fats without affecting foodstuffs' taste and texture. Funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, a team at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh has produced modified proteins that easily break down into micro-particles and therefore closely mimic the behavior of fats during food manufacture. ...> Full Article


New recreational travel model to help states stop firewood assisted insect travel (7/20/2014)

The spread of damaging invasive forest pests is only partially powered by the insects' own wings. People moving firewood for camping can hasten and widen the insects' spread and resulting forest destruction. A new US Forest Service study gives state planners a tool for anticipating the most likely route of human-assisted spread they can use to enhance survey and public education efforts. ...> Full Article


Hunting gives deer-damaged forests in state parks a shot at recovery (7/20/2014)

Hunting gives deer-damaged forests in state parks a shot at recoveryRegulated deer hunts in Indiana state parks have helped restore the health of forests suffering from decades of damage caused by overabundant populations of white-tailed deer, a Purdue study shows. ...> Full Article


Controlling contamination in open algae ponds for biofuels (7/19/2014)

Controlling contamination in open algae ponds for biofuelsBiofuels derived from the oils produced by algae may offer a low-cost sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. To achieve this goal, optimization of cost effective strategies for large-scale algae cultivation, such as in open pond systems, is needed. ...> Full Article


Bee foraging chronically impaired by pesticide exposure: Study (7/19/2014)

Bee foraging chronically impaired by pesticide exposure: StudyA study co-authored by a University of Guelph scientist that involved fitting bumblebees with tiny radio frequency tags shows long-term exposure to a neonicotinoid pesticide hampers bees' ability to forage for pollen. ...> Full Article


Boron tolerance discovery for higher wheat yields (7/18/2014)

Finally, a mug shot for a crop-killing pest (7/17/2014)

Finally, a mug shot for a crop-killing pestThey may be a small insect, but some leafhoppers can carry a big punch, devastating crops and causing millions of dollars in damage. But now New Hampshire farmers have a new source to help them identify the 'bad' leafhoppers from the 'good' leafhoppers. For the first time, New Hampshire's nearly 600 leafhoppers have been identified and cataloged by researchers at the NH Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of New Hampshire College of Life Sciences and Agriculture. ...> Full Article


Foodborne bacteria not as harmless to chickens as previously thought (7/17/2014)

Researchers at the University of Liverpool have shown that a bacterial infection in chickens, previously thought to be harmless to the bird, but responsible for food poisoning in humans, can in fact cause health problems in certain breeds. ...> Full Article


A sheep's early life experiences can shape behavior in later life (7/16/2014)

New research has found that a sheep's experiences soon after birth can shape its later behavior and also that of its offspring. ...> Full Article


DNA analysis reveals queen bumblebees disperse far from birthplace before setting up home (7/15/2014)

DNA analysis reveals queen bumblebees disperse far from birthplace before setting up homeIn the new study, published today in the journal Molecular Ecology, a combination of DNA analysis and landscape mapping was used to reveal the relationships between hundreds of wild bumblebee colonies of five different species, including four common and one rare species, in an area of nearly 20 square kilometers of farmland in southern England. ...> Full Article


Foodborne bacteria can cause disease in some breeds of chickens after all (7/15/2014)

Contrary to popular belief, the foodborne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni is not a harmless commensal in chickens but can cause disease in some breeds of poultry according to research published in mBio, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology. ...> Full Article


'Microbe sniffer' could point the way to next-generation bio-refining (7/14/2014)

'Microbe sniffer' could point the way to next-generation bio-refiningA new biosensor invented at the University of British Columbia could help optimize bio-refining processes that produce fuels, fine chemicals and advanced materials. It works by sniffing out naturally occurring bacterial networks that are genetically wired to break down wood polymer. ...> Full Article
