Universidad de Granada posted this:Compounds for the treatment of Leishmaniasis and other diseases caused by trypanosomes.Several compounds have been synthesized that are useful for the treatment of Leishmaniasis and other diseases caused by parasites of the Trypanosomatidae family. These compounds show an improvement in the antiparasitic activity and reduced toxicity compared to the usual commercial treatments, causing damage to the key enzyme in the survival of the parasite without significantly affecting that of the human host. Therefore, they are a potential alternative to current treatments used to fight against Leishmaniasis or Chagas disease.
Leading Biology posted this:Canine Monoclonal Antibody ServiceCanines are often used as animal models for vicious infection, inflammation and autoimmune diseases, especially some digestive system diseases. Based on rich experimental experience and technology accumulation of phage display, Leading Biology, with experience of large scale elutriation screening of high affinity dog mAb, has successfully established an immunization antibody library against several antigens. The antibodies prepared can be widely used in the biomedical field.

To date, no other research group has described Cas9 gene edited pepper plants. The researcher’s Cas9-pepper lines were used for genome editing via virus-driven trans-acting guides–for all the chosen target genes/traits. This innovation will allow breeders to enhance their exhisiting pepper varieties with novel traits. Furthermore, after back-crossing the lines the breeder will be able to remove the Cas9 gene leaving behind only the gene-edited pepper varieties. These resulting lines may be considered Non-GMO in certain geographies. By combining this technology with the MemoGene TTM#1705, the breeder/researcher may screen many phenotypes when transforming a plethora of guide RNAs.

Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University posted this:High Throughput Screening of Antimicrobial Agents Using MicrofluidicsYonatan is a Phytopathology expert using microfluidics system to do high throughput screening of libraries to identify antimicrobial agents which can be either chemical or biological (proteins or bacteria). Yonatan is testing pathogens sensitivity against combinations of bacteria and chemical agents from the libraries using the high-throughput microfluidics system. When Potential Producer, Potential Inducer have a combined affect on a Pathogen target (killing) efficiency become of interest. This is because in nature a single bacteria species is susceptible to environmental stresses but when combined with helper bacteria they support each other synergistically. Project ID : 47-2019-10825
Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University posted this:High Heat & TYLCV Resistant TomatoesHanokh Czosnek – High Heat & TYLCV Resistant Tomatoes (TTM# 10916) –The researchers used classical breeding to develop varieties of tomatoes for open field cultivation that combine resistance to TYLCV and tolerance to extreme heat reaching 45 °C. The lines show no symptoms to TYLCV with yields similar to uninfected plants and are also tolerant to heat: flowering and fruit setting routinely occur at temperatures around 40 °C. Under high temperature, the plants produce a very nice round shape fruit with average weight of 200 grams. Fruits do not show any malformation due to heat stress.

MemoGene technology takes advantage of a Tobacco rattle virus (TRV)-based expression system, which delivers genome editing molecular tools (CRISPR/Cas compatible guide RNAs, Zinc finger nucleases and Mega nucleases) into plant cells or protoplasts and is not variety/species/genus-specific.

The carriers are made of hydrocolloids which encapsulate a high concentration of Bdellovibrio like organisms (BALOs) which are known to fight biofilms. This system is environmentally friendly, prevents the target biofilm from developing resistance and the release rate of the biocontrol agents can be controlled.

Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University posted this:True Potato Seeds for Potato Starch ProductionHaim Rabinowitch - True Potato Seeds For Potato Starch Production (TTM #10851) - High quality potato starch is essential and particularly valued in the food, paper, adhesives, building, and textile industries. This is due to potato starch’s unique texture, neutral taste and high clarity compared to other starches. Our researchers have developed True Potato Seeds (TPS) for the propagation of potatoes with higher starch content. Advantages of these varieties are: TPS are cheaper and easier to handle than potato tubers. Seeds do not carry over pests and disease and hence reduce losses due to viral, bacterial and fungal infections. Production costs are reduced from USD ~760/hecater when using actual tubers to USD ~435/hectare when using TPS. Our new lines have between 4-6% higher dry matter content. Therefore, the replacement of the current system of planting tubers by transplanting TPS seedlings is of a significant economic consequence.
