Researchers from the University of Florida and Oklahoma State University conducted an online survey of 961 individuals in the U.S. to determine the effect of scientific information on beliefs about GM foods and global warming. Results showed that even if provided with science-based information about GMO or global warming

One of the major problems facing the feed industry is its processing. Most of the feeds contain anti-nutritional factors, such as raffinose-family oligosaccharide (RFO). These feeds containing RFO are supplemented with α-galactosidase to hydrolyze α-1,6-galactosidic bonds on the RFO.

The bacterium Myxococcus xanthus is a microbe with special properties. It lives in soils almost all over the world and is capable of social interactions; that is, individuals join forces to go hunting together for other bacteria and fungi. In times of need, several bacteria from this species can jointly form fruiting bodies with spores that can survive without water or nutrients for a long period of time.

During the green revolution, farmers replaced a large number of landraces with a small number of high-yielding varieties. There are concerns that such erosion of varietal diversity could be further aggravated through the widespread use of GM crops. In a recent study, Vijesh Krishna from the University of Goettingen and colleagues showed that GM technology can actually help to preserve agrobiodiversity, because GM traits can be introduced into a large number of varieties.

In the presence of harmful bacteria, plants respond quickly by closing the pores on their leaves which serve as loopholes for pathogens. A research team from the University of Würzburg analyzed this process, using the bacterial protein flagellin.

Plant roots constantly grow to provide the plant with water and minerals, while also giving it a firm anchor in the ground. Pluripotent stem cells, responsible for these functions, depend on signals from neighboring cells to avoid differentiation and remain pluripotent. These signals are generated by only a small group of slowly dividing cells in the so-called quiescent center inside the root.

The Federation of Crop Science Societies of the Philippines (FCSSP) held its 23rd Scientific Conference last May 12-15, 2015 at the Stotsenberg Hotel in Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga, Philippines. It was chaired by the Philippine Seed Industry Association Inc., co-organized by three societies (Crop Science, PhilFruits, and the Philippine Association of Plant Tissue Culture and Biotechnology), with support from the Department of Agriculture, the Pampanga State Agricultural University, among others.

Cucumber plants are not simply male or female. They can be seven different sexes, depending on a complex mix of genetic and environmental factors. Some high-yielding cucumber varieties produce only female flowers, and scientists from the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research (BTI) at Cornell University in the USA, and the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) in China, have identified the gene duplication that causes this unusual trait.
