Il calabrone asiatico invade la Svizzera

Verso la fine di aprile, è stato avvistato anche in Svizzera il temibile calabrone asiatico, un vero flagello per gli alveari (e gli apicoltori).
At Green Island, pictured here, the moss is almost a metre deep and around 1,500 years old. As they grow, moss banks preserve environmental information, so by taking cores from them we can develop records linked to past climate change.

Portal Genome Editing

The Max-Planck-Society has created a portal on genome editing, providing basic information, news and opinions on the subject. The focus is on the popular CRISPR/Cas9 system, but other techniques enabling precisely defined cuts in the genetic material are also portrayed.

Bioéthique et droits des brevets: 25 ans de l'oncosouris

L'oncosouris a été l'un des tout premiers animaux transgéniques. Un gène a été introduit dans le matériel génétique d'une souris pour augmenter ses chances de développer des tumeurs afin de faire avancer la recherche sur le cancer. En 1988, cette souris fut le premier animal à être breveté aux Etats-Unis. Le brevet suivit quelques années plus tard en Europe. Cela a conduit à de nombreuses demandes pour d'autres animaux ou plantes et a ouvert un débat sur la brevetabilité du vivant qui dure jusqu'à aujourd'hui.

Synthetic biologists engineer inflammation-sensing gut bacteria

Synthetic biologists at Rice University have engineered gut bacteria capable of sensing colitis, an inflammation of the colon, in mice. The research points the way to new experiments for studying how gut bacteria and human hosts interact at a molecular level and could eventually lead to orally ingestible bacteria for monitoring gut health and disease.

Inquinamento da pesticidi sempre elevato nei piccoli ruscelli

I piccoli corsi d'acqua sono inquinati da numerosi erbicidi, fungicidi e insetticidi. Uno studio effettuato su cinque ruscelli svizzeri per conto dell'Ufficio federale dell'ambiente (UFAM) mostra che i requisiti di legge in materia di qualità delle acque non sono stati rispettati in nessuno caso. Sono state superate persino concentrazioni di sostanze la cui tossicità per gli organismi acquatici è considerata acuta. Test biologici indicano che le comunità viventi soffrono per la presenza di queste miscele di sostanze. Misure per migliorare la qualità delle acque sono attualmente elaborate nel «Piano d'azione per la riduzione del rischio e l'utilizzo sostenibile dei prodotti fitosanitari».

Preparing for Future Products of Biotechnology

What will the likely future products of biotechnology be over the next 5–10 years? What scientific capabilities, tools, and/or expertise may be needed by the regulatory agencies to ensure they make efficient and sound evaluations of the likely future products of biotechnology? A report by the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Travels with apples

On the long journey from the fruit plantation to the retailer's shelf, fruits can quickly perish. In particular, the refrigeration inside the cargo containers is not always guaranteed and existing methods for measuring the temperature are not sufficiently reliable. A sensor developed at Empa solves this problem. It looks like a piece of fruit and acts like a piece of fruit – but is actually a spy.
