Allowing food production to increase despite the ever-increasing temperatures around the world

Opportunity to improve crop productivity by 10 to 20 percent with a new dynamic photosynthesis model

Boosting plant productivity by 27 percent in real-world field conditions – how?

Accelerating the process of photosynthesis to increase crop production

Scientists have found how to relieve a bottleneck in the process by which plants transform sunlight into food, which may lead to an increase in crop production. They discovered that producing more of a protein that controls the rate in which electrons flow during photosynthesis, accelerates the whole process. “We tested the effect of increasing

What if we could boost the yields of major food crops by almost 50 percent?

Plants such as soybeans and wheat waste between 20 and 50 percent of their energy recycling toxic chemicals created when the enzyme Rubisco—the most prevalent enzyme in the world—grabs oxygen molecules instead of carbon dioxide molecules. Increasing production of a common, naturally occurring protein in plant leaves could boost the yields of major food crops

The quest for long-lasting blood

Every day thousands of people around the world have their lives saved or improved thanks to someone giving blood. But imagine how many more lives could be saved if a long-lasting blood substitute could be found, which could easily be stored at room temperature and available to all patients, regardless of their blood type. This

Controlling a Virtual Spacecraft by Thought Alone

Scientists at the Essex have been working with NASA on a project where they controlled a virtual spacecraft by thought alone. Using BCI (brain-computer interface) technology, they found that combining the brain power of two people could be more accurate in steering a spacecraft than one person. BCIs convert signals generated from the brain into

Robotic fish to patrol for pollution in harbours

This is robo-fish – scientists’ latest weapon in the war against pollution. In the shallow waters of Gijon harbour, in northern Spain, a large, yellow fish cuts through the waves. But this swimmer stands apart from the marine life that usually inhabits this port: there’s no flesh and blood here, just carbon fibre and metal.
