Queensland University of Technology (QUT) scientist, Prof. Rogen Hellens, revealed how plants control cellular levels of vitamin C, which is vital in human nutrition. According to Prof. Hellens, the results of his study may help in plant breeding programs to develop hardier crops and improve human health, especially in preventing vitamin C deficiency that may lead to iron deficiency anemia, the most common effect of malnutrition globally.

Starch is one of the important products in photosynthesis. It is also used in textile and paper industries. Despite its various uses, its formation is yet to be understood. Hence, a group of researchers from ETH Zurich conducted a study to understand how starch is produced. The researchers examined the photosynthesis process, specifically the amylose formation taking place in Arabidopsis thaliana.
