Algae Could Feed and Fuel Planet with Aid of New High-Tech ToolNews
Vast quantities of medicines and renewable fuels could be produced by algae using a gene-editing technique, a study suggests. The technique uses molecules that act like scissors to cut DNA - called CRISPR molecules - which allow researchers to add new genes or modify existing ones. Until now, scientists have struggled to develop a technique that works efficiently in algae.READ MORE
Bioelectronic ‘Nose’ Can Detect Food Spoilage by Sensing the Smell of DeathNews
Strong odors are an indicator that food has gone bad, but there could soon be a new way to sniff foul smells earlier on. Researchers have developed a bioelectronic “nose” that can specifically detect a key decay compound at low levels, enabling people to potentially take action before the stink spreads. It can detect rotting food, as well as be used to help find victims of natural disasters or crimes.
