The apple’s genome map guides cultivation towards sustainability
About three years ago 18 research institutions coordinated by FEM got their teeth into the well-known cultivar Golden Delicious’ genome sequence. Golden Delicious is one cultivar of the domesticated apple Malus x domestica.
Prof. Francesco Salamini: "Availability of many markers will change all apple breeding paradigms”
Prof. Francesco Salamini: "Availability of many markers will change all apple breeding paradigms”
What has been the biggest challenge during the apple genome sequencing and mapping? The real problem in our case was that the variety, Golden Delicious, we had chosen is heterozygous.

His aim was to develop a system that could capture the oil right at its source, before it disperses on the surface of the ocean.
Oil Spills: A Deep Water Solution
Oil Spills: A Deep Water Solution
Oil is less dense than water and therefore the oil escaping the sea bed travels up to the water surface. Dr. Fivos Andritsos and his colleagues from the Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy have now developed a reservoir which can be applied on top of the leakage.

Stem Cells: A Genetic Perspective
Embryonic or neural stem cells are key tools for future studies on Parkinson’s disease or other degenerative diseases. So far, the only way to obtain embryonic stem cells implied the destruction of an embryo.

Bees “restored to health” in Italy after this spring’s neonicotinoid-free maize sowing
It does look like a resounding, spectacular success. During this year’s neonicotinoid-free maize sowing in Italy hardly a bee colony has been lost, bar a suspicious case where some leftover seed from last year may have been used.

The Secret of Sudden Death
Unlocking the mystery of that 5% of sudden cardiac deaths which are not caused by any apparent anatomic abnormality points to a group of inherited gene mutations in the heart’s ion channels.
