Transgenic rice plants could help to neutralize HIV transmission

Iowa State University

An international research group, which included an ISU scientist, has proven that three proteins that can help prevent the spread of HIV can be expressed in transgenic rice plants. Using plants as a production platform could provide a cost-effective means of producing prophylactics, particularly in the developing world.

Unraveling the Nature of ‘Whistlers’ from Space in the Lab

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as “whistlers” -- very low frequency packets of radio waves that race along magnetic field lines. Appearing in the Physics of Plasmas, the study provides new insights into the nature of whistlers and space plasmas and could one day aid in the development of practical plasma technologies with magnetic fields, including spacecraft thrusters that use charged particles as fuel.

UF/IFAS Researchers Give Nutrient Recommendations for Citrus Greening

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

Through funding from the state legislature-funded Citrus Initiative, Tripti Vashisth has found that leaves from greening-affected trees often show deficiencies in certain nutrients such as manganese, zinc, iron and more. This suggests that, because of greening, more of these are required and are critical for diseased plants’ survival.
