System to control plant production through gene silencing

A team of CSIC researchers has developed a system that would allow controlling the production and performance of a plant crop through a fine regulation of the degree of silencing of a gene of interest. Modulating gene silencing can help control the flowering times of a crop.

A device for predicting oxidation and shelf-life of oil and foods with lipids

The CSIC has developed a portable device to assay oxidation of oil and other foods with lipids. It enables producers to simulate the process of food oxidation in virtually real conditions, therefore emulating transport and storage environment. Now, scientists are seeking for agro-food companies interested in the development.
