Journal Notice: Call for Papers for the Special Issue: Probe - Agriculture & Agricultural Sciences

 

This issue will try to get at least 15 articles in Agriculture Sciences like Biotechnological and molecular genetics, chemical, Climate Resilient Agriculture, Carbonsequestration to face the challenges of food security by maintaining sustainable development via agrotechnological interentions. It is indeed a very coveted areas of innovative and experimental sciences, particularly interested to involve more experimental and structural engineering works in agriculture.

Sea grapes reveal secrets of plant evolution

 

If you've ever dined on the tropical island of Okinawa, Japan, your plate may have been graced by a remarkable pile of seaweed, each strand adorned with tiny green bubbles. Known as umi-budo or sea grapes, the salty snack pairs well with rice, sashimi and a tall glass of beer. But umi-budo is more than an iconic side dish; it's a staple crop for Okinawan farmers. Researchers at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) recently decoded the sea grape genome to learn about the plant's unique morphology and assist farmers in proper cultivation of the succulent seaweed.

"Many farmers face problems with sea grapes growing poorly. Today, they don't know why such problems occur," said Dr. Asuka Arimoto, first author of the study and a postdoctoral scholar in the OIST Marine Genomics Unit, led by Prof. Noriyuki Satoh. "Our genomic data can show them which genes are causing such trouble." With a catalog of all the genes controlling sea grape growth, said Arimoto, the researchers may be able to help farmers diagnose deficient plants when they crop up. The research could also help curb the spread of closely-related green seaweeds, which harm the environment by pushing out local plant varieties in the Mediterranean Sea and Pan-Pacific.
