Discuss: Plant Pests and Plant Pathology
« on: 19/10/2011 09:08:15 »
This week, Plant Pests and Plant Pathology - we find out what  happens when plants get ill, how to understand and prevent the spread of  plant disease, and how they can call up an insect army to defend them  if they’re attacked.  We also find out why some horse chestnut trees are  going brown before their time, and meet the pesky critter responsible!   Plus, a new technique to cleanly edit out and correct errors in the DNA  code, how the plague bacterium hasn't changed in 600 years, and why  children, but not chimps, choose to work together.
