Scientists have long been looking for ways to reduce or get rid of insect-borne diseases, and NC State University's Sophia Webster is taking a new approach that involves genetically engineering the mosquitoes.
The transparent belly of a tiny beast has revealed how algae-infecting chloroviruses bloom in freshwater around the world, says a new study from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
If parasites want to get to soybeans, they'll have to go through Kansas State University researchers first.
Marc Pollack, a Ph.D. student in the UC Davis Microbiology graduate group, and Jeremy Warren, a former postdoc in Plant Pathology, leave Davis at 5 a.m. every weekday morning to commute to IndieBio, a startup accelerator ...
On a farm, everything shares a connection.
A new study from a University of Nebraska-Lincoln research team led by plant pathologist Jim Alfano found that a bacterial plant pathogen suppresses a plant's immune system through the action of a protein called HopE1.
Aphids, the tiny insects that can overwhelm soybeans and reduce yields, are appearing earlier than in previous years, according to an Iowa State University entomologist.
Several Kansas State University researchers were essential in helping scientists assemble a draft of a genetic blueprint of bread wheat, also known as common wheat. The food plant is grown on more than 531 million acres around ...
A naturally occurring fungus might help curb the spread of an invasive tree species that is threatening forests in most of the United States, according to researchers.
(Phys.org) —The next time you stop and smell the roses, thank MED18. The protein MED18 controls many important plant processes, including when a plant blossoms, how it resists key fungal diseases, and how it responds to ...
