How do you make decisions if you cannot think? How do you respond to danger if you cannot run or hide? Plants know the answer to these questions. And fundamental researchers all over the world try to understand them as well.
Laatst zag ik een klein glazen potje met iets behoorlijk bizars erin.
Last month, in the Dutch town of Doetinchem, nature managers applied sun cream onto the bark of beech trees. Is that really necessary?
From fundamental research to an application
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are powerful tools that help scientists study the foundation of life. The knowledge that can be created with them is the basis for applications everyone can benefit from. It can be the cure of a disease or the cure of hunger. The GMOs are made to be used in a laboratory, but the knowledge that is created with them is made for everyone.
