Machine learning uncovers 'genes of importance' in agriculture and medicine

Machine learning can pinpoint 'genes of importance' that help crops to grow with less fertilizer, according to a new study. It can also predict additional traits in plants and disease outcomes in animals, illustrating its applications beyond agriculture.

Vampire bats may coordinate with ‘friends’ over a bite to eat

Vampire bats that form bonds in captivity and continue those 'friendships' in the wild also hunt together, meeting up over a meal after independent departures from the roost, according to a new study.

More support needed for pollination services in agriculture

The global decline of pollinators threatens the reproductive success of 90 per cent of all wild plants globally and the yield of 85 per cent of the world's most important crops. Pollinators -- mainly bees and other insects -- contribute to 35 per cent of the world's food production. The service provided by pollinators is particularly important for securing food produced by the more than two billion small farmers worldwide. An agroecologist points out that yields could be increased if pollinators were encouraged.

Children’s dislike of cauliflower, broccoli could be written in their microbiome

Many children, as well as adults, dislike Brassica vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. In the mouth, enzymes from these vegetables and from bacteria in saliva can produce unpleasant, sulfurous odors. Now, researchers have found that levels of these volatile compounds are similar in parent-child pairs, suggesting shared oral microbiomes. They also found that high levels cause children to dislike the vegetables.

An 'evolutionary rescue route' towards coexistence of competitive plant species

In nature, plant species having the same pollinators experience 'reproductive interference' owing to competition, and their coexistence is thought to be possible only through resource partitioning. However, recent studies have suggested that coexistence can occur without resource partitioning if the species evolve to self-pollinate. Now, researchers from Japan provide credibility to this hypothesis with simulations, establishing a novel mechanism for the coexistence of competing flowering species.
