Algae Could Feed and Fuel Planet with Aid of New High-Tech Tool

News

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.

Bioelectronic ‘Nose’ Can Detect Food Spoilage by Sensing the Smell of Death

News

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.

Marine Microbes may be Responsible for Production of the Greenhouse Gas

News

Industrial and agricultural activities produce large amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. Many bacteria also produce methane as a byproduct of their metabolism. Some of this naturally released methane comes from the ocean, a phenomenon that has long puzzled scientists because there were no known methane-producing organisms living near the ocean’s surface but new evidence is helping to solve the mystery.
