"Let's replace chemistry by genetics to improve agriculture" @jonathandgjones discusses with @PlantEvolution on the stage of #IPMB2018 in Montpellier [btw, did you read "Domestication: Sweet! A naturally transgenic crop" https://rdcu.be/33M7 by JJ?]
Detlef Weigel in the first talk at #ipmb2018 in Montpellier estimates that there are 20 billion spontaneous natural mutations every generation in a small field of wheat. But if you make a single mutation with CRISPR, your plant is GMO and must be regulated (recent ECJ decision).
It is all sucrose (C12H22O11) and I don’t see a point labeling as a non GMO! @NonGMOProject
Neutron stars can spin at a rate of 600 rotations per second. Mind blowing!
Looks like our May editorial l may have been overly optimistic! CRISPR plants now subject to tough GM laws in European Union (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-05814-6 …)
AtCRY2 is a blue light dependent transcription factor. Wow. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2211124718309963 …
How to weed out Bad Karma- Excellent talk on epigentic reprogramming in plant gremline by Prof. Martienssen @CSHLplantcourse

The recent @NaturePlants paper by @matesakf and colleagues @KeikoUTorii was so awesome it inspired me to write a blog post about it explaining why it is so awesome! #scicomm #plant #roots #auxin https://plantrootsandlight.wordpress.com/2018/07/04/quick-reactions-going-to-the-root-of-auxin-perception-or-how-a-plant-can-look-like-a-little-worm/ …
Immensely proud of our scientists, who created history by discovering a sub-Saturn size planet 600 light years away from the Earth. Congratulations to them. The discovery puts India among select countries. https://www.isro.gov.in/discovery-of-sub-saturn-exoplanet-around-sun-star …
Simply making an effort does not get you anywhere. It has to be the right kind of action, timing, and place. #SadhguruQuotes
This is very very cool: Astronomers have seen a planet *while it’s still forming*. http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/astronomical-birth-announcement-its-a-bouncing-baby-planet …
Maybe the most amazing astronomical image I've seen - this photograph captures the birth of a planet out of the disk of gas and dust surrounding a young star. It's 370 light-years away, so these events happened 370 years ago - making the planet as old as the Red Fort in Delhi.
Looking for an amazing postdoc in a beautiful location? Look no further than these TWO opportunities with @UllasPedmale!!! An added bonus, the root postdoc position is in collaboration with my lab. ;) #plantscijobs
Today in our @CSHLplantcourse, @cutlersr guides us through the origins of the chemical genetics approach though the classic paper, Mayer et al. (1999), “Small Molecule Inhibitor of Mitotic Spindle Bipolarity Identified in a Phenotype-Based Screen” #FTPS18 http://science.sciencemag.org/content/286/5441/971 …
