The International Conference on Agricultural and Food Engineering in Malaysia will be hosted by the Department of Process and Food Engineering and the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universiti Putra Malaysia. This conference will be held in conjunction with the Malaysia Agriculture, Horticulture and Agrotourism Exhibition (MAHA) in November 2012.

The main objective of CAFEi2012 is to provide a forum to discuss and promote the importance of “Bringing Engineering to Life” through safe-and-secured food production systems under clean-and-sustainable environment. It will identify new research directions and challenges that are relevant to the Agricultural and Food industry and explore the potential of using scientific knowledge, practical ideas, and emerging technologies for humankind.

This conference will also highlight development in research and innovations in agricultural and food engineering. The theme of CAFEi2012 will be, ‘Bringing Engineering to Life’. It will explore how Agricultural and Food engineering can contribute to sustainable agriculture for the country to achieve self sufficiency in food production. It will enhance in shape the agro-based industry with new engineering technology.

“Amazing Protein Diversity” Discovered in Maize
The genome of the corn plant – or maize, as it’s called almost everywhere except the US – “is a lot more exciting” than scientists have previously believed. So says the lead scientist in a new effort to analyze and annotate the depth of the plant’s genetic resources.
Invasive Species Could Cause Billions in Agriculture Damages
Invasive insects and pathogens could be a multi-billion-dollar threat to global agriculture and developing countries may be the biggest target, according to a team of international researchers.
Genetic Research Can Significantly Improve Drug Development
With drug development costs topping $1.2bn (£850 million) to get a single treatment to the point it can be sold and used in the clinic, could genetic analysis save hundreds of millions of dollars?
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
Scoliosis Linked to Disruptions in Spinal Fluid Flow
A new study in zebrafish suggests that irregular fluid flow through the spinal column brought on by gene mutations is linked to a type of scoliosis that can affect humans during adolescence.
More Research Needed to Ensure Gene Drive Safety
Gene-Drive modified organisms are not ready to be released into environment a new report calls for more research and robust assessment.
Genetic Basis of Petunia Variation Uncovered
A large international team of researchers, including scientists from Wageningen University, have now sequenced the entire genome of two different wild petunia species, and published this in the important scientific journal Nature Plants.
