Kenya opens the door to GMO cultivation

Eliud Kireger, highlighted the importance of developing insect-resistant corn by noting that Kenya “is losing about 40% of the 42 million bags of maize to stem-borer and other pests and we have to import to make up for the losses.” In addition to conducting research and commercializing GMO crops, Kenyan scientists are engaged in projects […]

Functional Genomics can Assist Molecular Breeding of Maize

Tissue-culture-based genetic transformation, a commonly used maize breeding technique, however, is limited by two major roadblocks: First, the relative unavailability of genome sequences of inbred lines that show stark phenotypic variations and second, difficulty in inducing callus from immature maize embryos on tissue culture media—the initial step of genetic transformation. Dr. Yaou Shen of Sichuan […]

The Shift to Digitization in Cell Culture Monitoring

Cell culture is a valuable tool with numerous applications. It allows us to study the normal physiology and biochemistry of cells, explore mechanisms underlying disease, test the effects of drug compounds, and manufacture biotherapeutics. The ability to continuously monitor cells in real-time ensures precious time and money is not spent conducting experiments on cells that […]
