Genetic Enhancement for Plant Insect Resistance


Clemson University researchers have identified a soybean cysteine protease inhibitor gene shown to enhance plant pest and disease resistance. Use of this inhibitor gene would result in better crop yield and quality.

Marine Antifouling Peptide to Prevent Biofouling

Biotechnology, Sustainable Environment

This synthetic conopeptide analog, named Miata57, to the noradrenaline (NA) molecule enables antifouling action. This analog could potentially be manufactured and incorporated into commercial epoxy based paints and coatings to deter fouling marine invertebrates from settling, thus preventing biofouling.
