Symposia highlight smarter plant breeding for food and fuel, and nanotechnology for renewable energy
Date:1/29/2014

"Meeting Global Challenges: Discovery and Innovation" is the theme of the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS 2014), which takes place in Chicago Feb. 13 - 17. In symposia organized by the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and international partners, journalists are invited to learn the latest about two promising lines of research: how unlocking the natural diversity of maize and other plant genomes could help nourish and power 21st-century societies; and how nanotechnology can improve efficiency and reduce costs for photovoltaics and energy harvesting.

Securing Food, Feed, and Fuel via Natural Diversity: Spotlight on the Maize Genome
Friday, Feb. 14, 2014, 8:00-9:30 a.m.

Farmers and plant breeders around the world have always worked to optimize the agricultural plants that support their societies. Given the current trends of climate change, booming human and livestock populations, and increasing demand for biofuels, the pressure on crops and croplands has never been greater. Fortunately, this challenge coincides with an unprecedented moment in science. Innovative, interdisciplinary research programs are poised to deliver knowledge and tools that can help secure food, feed, and fuel for a changing world. Genome-enabled selection can accelerate the breeding of plants adapted for climate change, modified to enhance nutrition, or tailored for more economical biofuel production. Such goals can be achieved by bringing out traits hidden in a plant's own genome variations accumulated through evolution, inherited and modified down through the generations, though perhaps not expressed in modern varieties. Tapping this inherent, natural diversity is the key, whether through genome-wide approaches or by targeting links between specific g
