Virginia Tech researchers join NSF Arabidopsis 2010 Project; may help produce plants that defend themselves without pesticides

...ey have a nice flavor to us, but they are toxic or repellant to insects feeding on them." Some enzymes produce cyanide when plants are attacked, he said. As we understand these genes and what their product enzymes do," Esen said, "through genetic engineering, we can produce plants that defend themselves witho...

...did more poorly. Using statistics to tease out the repellant effects of individual plant guilds, the researchers found that each guild was most effective at limiting the success of introduced plants from its own guild.

Mix of chemicals plus stress damages brain, liver in animals and likely in humans

...sed to 60 days of low-dose chemicals -- the insect repellant DEET, the insecticide permethrin, and the anti-nerve gas agent pyridostigmine bromide.

Physicists reveal first 'nanoflowers'

...re currently being explored are their use as water repellant coatings and as a base for a new type of solar cell. We have already shown that as a coating water droplets roll off these surfaces when they are tilted at angles as small as 5 degrees. This behavior is a direct consequence of the ability of such nan...
