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.

Alert system to improve the production of farmed fish

Researches from the Instituto de Acuicultura Torre de la Sal (IATS-CSIC), the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC) and the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria have developed an intelligent system “AE-FishBIT” for monitoring the behaviour of breeding fishes. The device makes it possible to know the degree of well-being of farmed fish to improve the production.

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.

Method for the extraction of biocomponents from spirulina

CSIC scientists have developed a method for the extraction of biocomponents from spirulina. These components are interesting because their anti-hypertensive, anti-hyperlipidemic and antioxidant benefits.The method and the extract obtained have application in the food, cosmetic or pharmaceutical industry.
