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.

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.

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.

University of Vigo posted this:Procedure for the extraction of biosurfactants contained in corn steep liquorsNowadays, most of the pharmaceutical and cosmetic products in the market contain chemically synthesized surfactants in its composition. In many cases, these surfactants are the same as those used in regular cleanup activities. In order to get more natural and biocompatible products, it would be interesting to include natural surfactants instead of chemical surfactants in the preparation of these pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. These biosurfactants are also present in the formulation of greener nanoparticles, replacing the chemical surfactants currently used in the preparation thereof. Most biosurfactants have antimicrobial activity, which would improve the properties of certain nanoparticles, as well as many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The main disadvantage of biosurfactants industrial production is related to the high cost compared to chemically synthesized surfactant production. The solution proposed by the Chemical Engineering research group at the University of Vigo, is the development of eco-friendly simple extraction of biosurfactant from a corn wet-milling industry byproduct, such as corn wash liquors, better known as "corn steep liquor (CSL)", which could compete in terms of cost production with its chemical counterparts.

The reserachers used classical genetic breeding methods to take advantage of mutations that alter carotenoid production to achieve zeaxanthin levels that are as high as 35 ?g/g FW. The zeaxanthin tomatoes will not be considered “genetically modified” (GMO), thus the fruits and extracts should face no marketing limitations. Patent Position: Provisional Filed.

Institut Català d'Investigació Química (ICIQ) posted this:Photochemical metal-free method of amination of C-H bondsA new method for the metal-free amination of C-H bonds has been developed. The method uses readily available reagents (iodine, trilfuoromethylsuylfonamide, diacetoxyiodobenzene) and light to insert a sulfonamide moiety into a C-H bond. the method has been successfully used in the preparation of various APIs (memantine, rasagiline, sertraline). The method takes place in mild conditions and allows avoiding the use of transition metal catalysis and multiple-steps procedures. Partners are sought for the joint development of commercial applications of the method.
