New developments in engineering plant metabolic pathways

A review of the current state-of-the-art in plant engineering. The publication presents how:
- Plant metabolic pathways can be reconstituted in heterologous hosts.
- Metabolism in crop plants can be engineered to improve the production of biofuels.
- Crops can be engineered to express metabolic pathways that improve human health.

Extreme Insect Imaging

Many natural history collections are currently digitizing their most important specimens to enhance their visibility and usefulness. The results of these endeavours are usually made publicly available in national and international information portals such as those of the «Centre Suisse de Cartographie de la Faune» (CSCF) or the «Global Biodiversity Information Facility» (GBIF).

Retour sur la biologie de synthèse

Sarah Dirren de la RTS vous propose un dossier sur la biologie de synthèse ou comment créer du vivant à partir d’éléments présents dans la nature. L’idée de la biologie de synthèse est de concevoir et de construire de nouveaux systèmes ou de nouvelles fonctions biologiques plus performants que ceux existant dans la nature.

Genetically Engineered Crops: Experiences and Prospects

U.S. national academies find biotech crops not harmful to human health and the environment. They conclude that foods from GE crops are as safe as foods from non-GE crops and and that the U.S. regulatory system needs to assess crop varieties based on their individual characteristics, not the way they are produced.

Comment évaluer globalement la durabilité des exploitations agricoles suisses ?

Agroscope a développé un système pour évaluer la durabilité des exploitations agricoles suisses. Il comprend une large palette d’indicateurs d’impact, tels que l’efficience des ressources, les liquidités et le bien-être animal. Les indicateurs permettront aux agriculteurs et aux agricultrices de procéder à une évaluation pratique de leur exploitation en tenant compte des trois dimensions, environnementale, économique et sociale.

Forscher wollen das Nördliche Breitmaulnashorn retten

Im Dezember 2015 versammelte sich eine internationale Gruppe von Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern in Wien, um das drohende Aussterben des Nördlichen Breitmaulnashorns zu diskutieren und Möglichkeiten zu erörtern, wie dies verhindert werden kann. Die Ideen und Pläne dieses historischen Treffens erscheinen nun im internationalen Fachmagazin Zoo Biology. Die Veröffentlichung ist Teil der fortlaufenden Bemühungen, auf die Aussterbenskrise aufmerksam zu machen, welche die Nashörner und viele andere Arten bedroht. Ziel ist es, vor allem die Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft zu erreichen und so den Austausch und das Sammeln von Informationen voranzubringen.

«Hydrology, Limnology and Hydrogeology»: Call for abstracts

This symposium is part of the 14th Swiss Geoscience Meeting (18th and 19th November 2016 in Geneva). The session is open to contributions dealing with hydrology, limnology and hydrogeology at all scales and especially contributions demonstrating interdisciplinary approaches. Additionally, this year particularly welcome are recent developments in urban hydrology or limnology and hydrogeology in regions with strong on-going socio-economic changes (population growth, land use change).
