Novel Coronatine-Based Herbicide Treatment Platform with Increased Pathogen Resistance for Crop Plants

Executive SummaryDespite best efforts and current technology to enhance agricultural productivity, it’s estimated that insect pests and disease reduce the value of several major world crops, including rice, wheat, and corn by 20-37% annually. Considering more and more pests are becoming resistant to common agrochemical treatments, a crop pla...

Improved Corrosion Resistance in Aluminum Joints

Executive SummaryWhile aluminum and aluminum products are generally not subjects of corrosion due to environmental conditions, they are still subject to the effects of galvanic corrosion. By altering the nobility of aluminum, the effects of galvanic corrosion can be minimized and the durability of aluminum products may be enhanced. Description of T...

An Arabidopsis Gene Involved in the Conversion of Aldehydes to Alkanes in Arabidopsis Leaf Wax

IntroductionEpicuticular wax layers of plants mainly consist of long straight-chain aliphatic hydrocarbons with a variety of substituted groups. Plant waxes have many functions, including increasing plant resistance to biotic stress (e.g., pathogens) and abiotic stress (e.g., temperature changes, drought). Additionally, since wax components have a ...

Identification of an Arabidopsis Disease Resistance Gene, AtMIN7

IntroductionPlants and other complex organisms possess an innate immune system that enables host response to a number of pathogens that would otherwise cause harm or death. Plants are usually able to mount a response to most pathogens and recover from infection. However, some pathogens have developed offensive mechanisms that attack, weaken, and/or...
