Is controlling plant development possible?
Plant diseases are not only a nuisance to neighbourhood gardeners, but more importantly, have a direct impact on a country’s agri-food industry. Associate Professor Miao Yansong, a plant scientist from the NTU School of Biological Sciences, recently published a study that shed some light on the field of plant immune response against microbial pathogens.
New insights into processes leading up to big earthquakes and tsunamis call for review of tsunami risk assessment
Two recent papers published in Nature Geoscience by researchers from ASE and the EOS Geodesy group shine new light on the geological processes leading up to earthquakes that can generate devastating tsunamis. In view of the new findings, earthquake and tsunami risk assessment need to be revised for coastlines near subduction zones in Asia and worldwide.
