Advance in re-engineering photosynthesis to make drugs, compounds or ingredients

Scientists are reporting an advance in re-engineering photosynthesis to transform plants into bio-factories that manufacture high-value ingredients for medicines, fabrics, fuels and other products. They report on the research in the journal ACS S... Lees verder »

Algae can draw energy from other plants

Biologists at Bielefeld University have confirmed for the first time that a plant, the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants. This ... Lees verder »

Water-wise biofuel crop study to alter plants metabolic, photosynthesis process

A five-year, multi-institutional $14.3 million United States Department of Energy grant to explore the genetic mechanisms of crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) and drought tolerance in desert-adapted plants was awarded to a team of researchers wh... Lees verder »

1001 Genome-Project -- On the way to a complete catalog of the Arabidopsis genome

Which genes and gene variants allow different individuals of one species to thrive under very different environmental conditions? The model plant for genetics, the thale cress,  Arabidopsis thaliana , is especially well suited for the invest... Lees verder »

Sugar beet yields could double in next 20 years

In sugar beets, technology has brought us from 2t/ha in the late 1800s to 10t/ha now. Modification of plant photosynthetic efficiency will raise yield potential and on-going developments in crop protection products will continue to raise the atta... Lees verder »

Model Helps Pinpoint Cyanobacterial Genes That Capture the Sun's Energy
