Different cell types make up the various plant tissues in Populus trichocarpa (a poplar species), a model system for bioenergy and carbon cycling. Guided by the biological information encoded within genome sequences, we can begin to identify, understand, re-engineer, and harness specific cellular systems for energy production, environmental remediation, and other national needs.

Small scale, big impact.

"Springtime in the Bay of Biscay, off the coast of France, as in most places, is a season of abundant growth. On April 20, 2013, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of the dynamic growth of a springtime phytoplankton bloom. The swirling colors indicate the presence of vast numbers of phytoplankton – tiny plant-like microorganisms that live in both fresh and salt water. Although these organisms live year-round in the Bay of Biscay, it is only when conditions are right that explosive blooms occur. In spring, the lengthening sunlight, the increased nutrient load swept into the Bay from ocean currents and from snowmelt carried by freshwater rivers, combined with warming waters create the perfect conditions to spur phytoplankton in to tremendous growth. The result is a swirling, multi-hued discoloration that can be easily seen from space."

edit from ohscience: Nat Geo says: “Coral polyps can reproduce asexually, forming cloned buds that separate from the “parent.” They can also release sperm and eggs into the ocean. Fertilized eggs develop into larva, which float off to start a new colony.”

This photo illustrates a current situation in Prague, Czech Republic. What you see there is smog, which we haven’t seen here in quite a few years, so it took us completely by surprise. When I was taking this photo, the sun shone like crazy through the fog, but it turned out that it was just a wish made by mind completely unaccustomed to such a situation. While we all know that this is a kind of a big problem, I can’t help myself but to find this strange beautiful.
