NC State News :: NC State News and Information » Irish Potato Famine-Causing Pathogen Even More Virulent Now

NC State News :: NC State News and Information » Irish Potato Famine-Causing Pathogen Even More Virulent Now | Food, Bioprocessing, Nutrition, Food Safety, Ingredients | Scoop.it
CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

The plant pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine in the 1840s lives on today with a different genetic blueprint and an even larger arsenal of weaponry to harm and kill plants.

In a study published in the journal Nature Communications, North Carolina State University plant pathologist Jean Ristaino and colleagues Mike Martin and Tom Gilbert from the University of Copenhagen compared the genomes, or sets of all genes, of five 19th century strains of the Phytophthora infestans pathogen with modern strains of the pathogen, which still wreaks havoc on potatoes and tomatoes.

The researchers found that the genes in historical plant samples collected in Belgium in 1845 as well as other samples collected from varied European locales in the late 1870s and 1880s were quite different from modern-day P. infestans genes, including some genes in modern plants that make the pathogen more virulent than the historical strains.

Very interesting article, it makes alot of sense. I've watched bees and other insects go to the same plants everyday. Now I know why.

An unprecedented partnership of academic and industry organizations at the North Carolina Research Campus has launched a groundbreaking $1.5 million program to engage college students from across the state in a first-of-its-kind education and research endeavor.

 

Called the Plant Pathways Elucidation Project (P2EP), the program teams university scientists, industry leaders and college students, who together will explore plant pathways to answer why and how plants, like fruits and vegetables, benefit human health. P2EP aims to foster scientific discoveries, provide educational opportunities and create a vast knowledge base of plant pathways research.

A new NCSU study at the Plants for Human Health Institute at the NC Research Campus focuses on enhanced levels of lutein in broccoli. Lutein, an antioxidant also found in leafy greens such as kale & spinach, is associated with lowered risk for cataracts & age-related macular degeneration. Dr. Allan Brown, Asst. Prof., Horticultural Science & the Plants for Human Health Institute, received a $1 55,525 grant from the NC Biotechnology Ctr. for broccoli research with matching funding from Monsanto.
