Plant scientists at Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and Penn State University developed an automated imaging technique to measure and analyze the root systems of mature plants. The imaging and software will provide geneticists the statistical information they need to search for genes with the best characteristics.

Successful winter canola (Brassica napus L.) production creates diversity and provides crop rotation alternatives for producers. Stand establishment and winter survival are among the main determinants of success in winter canola production. The objective of this research was to investigate the impact of environment, crop management, genetics and their interactions on canola stand establishment, survival, yield, and oil and protein content

Researchers from University of Wisconsin-Madison evaluated the efficacy of a new DNA isolation technique  for plant tissues in terms of  yield and purity of isolated DNA. The technique is based on MagnaCel paramagnetic cellulose particles (PMC), a method applied on forensic sciences which requires small amount of DNA. A comparative assessment of PCM with two other DNA isolation technique methods, silica column technique (DNeasy Plant Mini Kit) and cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) method in terms of yield and purity of isolated DNA was conducted in 25 plant species.

Scientists at Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology in Germany revealed how fall armyworms survive plants' defense against pests. In North and South America, fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) cause massive damage in maize fields. Crops like maize attach sugars to chemical defenses known as benzoxazinoids to protect themselves from being poisoned by their own protective agents

A new study by Jillian Fan, John Shanklin, and Changcheng Xu at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, published in The Plant Cell, revealed a method for increasing oil in plant leaves. Using the new method, the scientists grew Arabidopsis with leaves that had significantly higher oil content. The key was in the biochemical pathways converting carbon into fatty acids, fatty acids to oil, and breakdown of oil.
