(New Scientist) Cassava packs a protein punch with bean genes, by Andy Coghlan A DEADLY poison could save the lives of millions of African children, thanks to the discovery that cassava can be duped into turning about half of the cyanide it makes into extra protein. Although cassava, , and his team bumped up the protein content to 12.5 per cent by adding bean and maize genes to make, , the added bean protein resembles one that causes rare allergic reactions. So the team has developed

Danforth Center scientists help clear regulatory hurdles to speed a pest-resistant variety into the hands of sub-Saharan African smallholder farmers. 
IMPACT STORY: FEEDING THE WORLD, Imagine working all year in the field only to have your crop fail. This is the reality for many farmers around the world. Chimara is a bean farmer in rural Abia, Nigeria. She supports her family and makes enough money at market to send her daughter to school. Last year, despite all her efforts, her crop was destroyed by a voracious insect pest. Such crop failures are the reality for Nigerian bean farmers. But now, thanks to a team

Plant Pulse, Plants Talk. Plants Listen. Here's How. NPR Over the past 20 years, scientists have found that all kinds of trees and plants like sagebrush, barley, corn, and yes, bean plants, release VOCs when they're being invaded. It's a plant's way of crying out. But is anyone listening? Apparently. Because we can watch the neighboring plants react.
