Twist Bioscience Gets Stung by Short Report

Someone once said it’s easier to fool people than convince them they’ve been fooled. For those who invest with conviction, nothing damages one’s pride more than accusations of being conned. Investors must be wary of letting such emotions get in the way of objectivity. Anyone who dismisses an entire short…

GWAS, MWAS and mGWAS provide insights into precision agriculture based on genotype-dependent microbial effects in foxtail millet

GWAS identifies genetic variations associated with agronomic traits in foxtail millet A total of 827 foxtail millet cultivars collected from China were sequenced and genotyped using common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) based on a ~423 Mb Setaria italica cv. Zhanggu reference genome (v.2.3)27. In total, 161,562 SNPs were detected after stringent steps…

A Generalized Method for Determining Free Soluble Phenolic Acid Composition and Antioxidant Capacity of Cereals and Legumes

Phenolic acids are important phytochemicals that are present in whole grains. They possess bioactive properties such as antioxidant protective functions. This work aimed at reporting on a generalized method for the HPLC identification, total phenolic content estimation, and determination of the antioxidant capacity of phenolic acids in cereals and legumes….

Advanced Self-Healing Asphalt Reinforced by Graphene Structures: An Atomistic Insight

Graphene-modified asphalt nanocomposite has shown an advanced self-healing ability compared to pure asphalt. In this protocol, molecular dynamics simulations have been applied in order to understand the role of graphene in the self-healing process and to explore the self-healing mechanism of asphalt components from the atomistic level. This method can…

Researchers boost rice yield by overcoming tr

image: The mechanism of boosting rice yield by overcoming a trait trade-off beteen tiller number and panicle size view more  Credit: IGDB Crop breeding is largely constrained by tradeoffs among different agronomic traits. Since many of these tradeoffs are caused by gene pleiotropy, reducing gene pleiotropy may make it easier to…
