New research published recently in the journal eLife sheds fresh light on plant chloroplasts, and the proteins inside them. The regulation of chloroplast proteins is important for plant development and stress acclimation and is increasingly significant as plants are having to respond to changing environments.

Five internationally-recognised researchers have been appointed as the first Turing Artificial Intelligence (AI) World-Leading Researcher Fellows.
New Oxford University research will help optimize environmentally friendly ways of fertilising plants
30 July 2021
New research from the Departments of Plant Sciences and Engineering Science, as well as collaborators at VU Amsterdam, uses both mathematical modelling and experimental validation to study the metabolic processes controlling how bacteria provide ammonia to legumes, which is vastly important for sustainable agriculture.

The COVID-19 Alpha (or Kent) variant is not 80% more transmissible, as was originally thought, according to a new study published by researchers at universities including Oxford. But, they warn, the rapid spread of the variant around the UK last year has major implications for the treatment of other variant outbreaks, because it resulted from multiple ‘exports’. It was, in fact, a major ‘super-seeding’ event, with the variant ‘exported’ numerous times from the large outbreak in the Kent/London area.
