First Precision Breeding of Sugarcane With CRISPR/Cas9

First Precision Breeding of Sugarcane With CRISPR/Cas9

Sugarcane is one of the most productive plants on Earth, providing 80 percent of the sugar and 30 percent of the bioethanol produced worldwide. Its size and efficient use of water and light give it tremendous potential for the production of renewable value-added bioproducts and biofuels. But the highly complex sugarcane genome poses challenges for conventional breeding, requiring more than a decade of trials for the development of an improved cultivar.

Printing Stretchable, Bendable Circuits on Artificial Skin

Researchers have spent nearly two decades trying to develop skin-like integrated circuits that can be stretched, folded, bent and twisted - working all the while - and then snap back without fail, every time. Such circuits presage a day of wearable and implantable products, but one hurdle has always stood in the way.
