PLANT HEALING: Biopolymer to heal plant wounds: a collaboration between ICMAB and CRAG

Dr. Anna Laromaine, from ICMAB-CSIC, and Dr. Núria Sánchez-Coll, from CRAG (Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics) have developed an effective method for plant tissue regeneration that involves the use of a bacterial cellulose-based biopolymer. It enhances the formation of new cell layers which boosts the healing processes.

Bacterial cellulose biopolymer
Wounds in plants can be caused by several agents like weather events (hail, wind…), predators (herbivores, insects) or humans (pruning, grafting), among others.

Superconductors for the “Energy Transition” in Europe

Research on superconductivity is showing promising results that will not only lead to the development of electrical highways across Europe, but also to higher energy efficiency and reduction of costs for renewable energy and global research projects such as CERN and ITER. In addition, the results could also be applied to a future all-electric airplane.
