A new study in the field of DNA has shown that DNA strands can be forced to to fold into shapes in minutes rather than days as previously believed. This is a huge advancement for the general field dedicated to this, known as DNA origami. The end result of all of this effort is to make nanoscale machines.
New tissue culture techniques uses in-vitro technology to meet the high ginger demand of Sabah (one of the 13 member states of Malaysia). This is signifigant in sense that in-vitro is used to produce 500 plantlets from one ginger plant in six months. This technique is also being applied to other produce such as coconuts. This breeding technology was introduced at Agricultural Research Station (ARS) Golden Jubilee Open House at Ulu Dusun.
