Choosing cheese (7/28/2014)

After studying 137 varieties of cheese collected in 10 different countries, Harvard researchers have been able to identify three general types of microbial communities that live on cheese, opening the door to using each as a 'model' community for the study of whether and how various microbes and fungi compete or cooperate as they form communities, what molecules may be involved in the process and what mechanisms may be involved. ...> Full Article


Flower development in 3D: Timing is the key (7/27/2014)

Flower development in 3D: Timing is the keyDevelopmental processes in all living organisms are controlled by genes. At the same time there is a continuous metabolism taking place. Wolfram Weckwerth, head of the Department of Ecogenomics and Systems Biology at University of Vienna, and his team have analyzed this interaction between metabolism and developmental processes in flowering plants. In a recent study on flower development, changes in metabolism were linked to three-dimensional morphometric data using micro-computed tomography for the first time. ...> Full Article


Major study documents nutritional and food safety benefits of organic farming (7/26/2014)

Major study documents nutritional and food safety benefits of organic farmingThe largest study of its kind has found that organic foods and crops have a suite of advantages over their conventional counterparts, including more antioxidants and fewer, less frequent pesticide residues. The study looked at an unprecedented 343 peer-reviewed publications comparing the nutritional quality and safety of organic and conventional plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, and grains. The study team applied sophisticated meta-analysis techniques to quantify differences between organic and non-organic foods. ...> Full Article


Experts voice concerns over arsenic in rice (7/25/2014)

Inorganic arsenic in rice and rice-based foods poses health concerns in infants and young children, and steps should be taken to minimize exposure, according to a commentary in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, official journal of the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition and the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health. ...> Full Article


Gene discovery could lead to better soybean varieties for Northern United States (7/24/2014)

Gene discovery could lead to better soybean varieties for Northern United StatesResearchers from Purdue University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have discovered a soybean gene whose mutation affects plant stem growth, a finding that could lead to the development of improved soybean cultivars for the northern United States. ...> Full Article


A natural way to monitor, and possibly control populations of, stink bugs (7/23/2014)

Anyone who has squashed a stink bug knows why they got their name. Although just a nuisance to homeowners, the insects feed on and damage fruits and vegetables, causing significant economic losses for farmers. Now scientists report in ACS' Journal of Natural Products that they've discovered certain stink bug pheromone components and made them artificially in the lab for the first time, and these substances can be used to monitor and manage their populations. ...> Full Article

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)

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)
