The CRISPR/Cas molecular scissors work like a fine surgical instrument and can be used to modify genetic information in plants. Research teams have now not only exchanged single genes, but recombined entire chromosomes with the CRISPR/Cas technology. In this way, desired properties can be combined in crops.

Honeybees: Pesticides disrupt nursing behavior and larval development

A newly developed video technique has allowed scientists to record the complete development of a honey bee in its hive. Researchers discovered that certain pesticides -- neonicotinoids -- changed the behavior of the nurse bees: they fed the larvae less often. Larval development took up to 10 hours longer. A longer development period in the hive can foster infestation by parasites.
