nightmare and a major cause of harassment for commuters. ?DNA Globally,K. wanted to exploit this alarm to help defend wheat plants The researchers knew that some kinds of plants make this alarm pheromone although apparently not to fight aphids They designed a new gene based on one in peppermint and adapted it to work in wheat plants That’s “a major accomplishment” says ecologist Marcel Dicke of Wageningen University in the Netherlands whose group works to design ways to integrate crop protection with biological control plant engineering and breeding Wheat has six copies of each of its chromosomes he notes making effective genetic modification quite a challenge Lab experiments showed promise: The wheat released the pheromone three kinds of aphids steered clear and parasitic wasps were attracted “It’s really the first time that someone makes a GM plant with a gene for coding for an insect pheromone” says Thierry Hance an ecologist at the Catholic University of Louvain Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium A field trial was next but when a group called Take the Flour Back got a whiff of that study they worried about the spread of the engineered genes In 2012 the group threatened to uproot the test fields but after a public appeal by scientists and a media debate the trials went ahead Fencing and extra security cost 22 million—about three times the price of the 5-year research project itself The researchers planted engineered wheat and non-GM varieties in 16 plots each 6 meters square But this time the wheat was a bust: There were no statistically significant differences in aphid numbers between the GM and non-GM plots as the team describes today in Scientific Reports Failure in field trials is not uncommon as plant breeders weed out poorly performing varieties en route to selecting likely commercial winners says Penny Maplestone chief executive of the British Society of Plant Breeders in Ely Part of the problem might have been that the summers of 2012 and 2013 when the trials took place were wet and cold which depressed the aphid populations That may have made it harder to detect an effect of the alarm pheromone Jones suspects something else is wrong: The wheat plants released a steady supply of pheromone rather than a short burst as aphids do when they are attacked Dicke agrees “If you make a transgenic plant that produces that alarm continuously it’s not going to work” he says “You have a plant crying wolf all the time and the bugs won’t listen to it any longer” In fact in greenhouse experiments the researchers did see aphids eventually ignore the pheromone when they were constantly exposed to it The reason that Jones and his colleagues decided to engineer a constant supply was to ensure that the wheat plants would make enough In addition they hoped that aphids flying into the field would suddenly encounter the alarm as if it were a sharp new scent The researchers are considering creating wheat that sends out pulses of pheromones or releases them only when under attack Jones says that wheat plants turn on certain genes when nibbled by insects or sucked by aphids so he and others might be able to find the switches for these genes and hook them up to the engineered genes that make the pheromones It will likely take several years before the team is ready for a new field trial he says Despite the disappointing results the overall approach is worth pursuing other plant biologists say “We are in urgent need of new ways to control insect pests on crops with very limited options available from pesticide sprays and conventional breeding Alternative approaches ranging from new agricultural practices to genetic modification must be explored” said Ottoline Leyser a plant biologist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom in a statement "This field trial is an excellent example of the sort of work that is needed"Written by PTI | Melbourne | Published: May 7 2013 4:56 pm

beneficial psychological effectsscientists believe “Anecdotallychocolate is often linked to mood enhancement” said lead author of the studyMatthew Pasefrom Swinburne University of TechnologyAustralia “This clinical trial is perhaps the first to scientifically demonstrate the positive effects of cocoa polyphenols on mood” Pase said Seventy-two healthy men and women aged 40-65 years took part in the randomised study to receive a dark chocolate drink mix standardised to contain either 500 mg of cocoa polyphenols250 mg of cocoa polyphenols or 0 mg of cocoa polyphenols The drink mixes were given to participants in identical packaging so that both the investigators and participants were unaware of which treatment they were receiving Participants drank their assigned drink once a day for 30 days After 30 daysthose who drank the high dose concentration of cocoa polyphenols reported greater calmness and contentedness than those who drank either of the other drink mixes The researchers did not find any evidence that cocoa polyphenols significantly improved cognitive performance Additionallyonly those who consumed the highest amount of polyphenols (500 mg per day) reported any significant positive effects Participants who consumed a moderate amount (250 mg per day) reported no significant effects The study was published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology For all the latest Lifestyle
