Methane from cow burps can be reduced by a two-front approach

Combing a cow’s own genetics with strategies that target changes in her rumen flora may be able to reduce methane emissions more effectively than by only selecting for low methane-emitting cows.

DNA molecules will be used to mimic human sense of taste

Human sense of taste is complex and difficult to imitate. An interdisciplinary project is now aiming at developing extremely fast "artificial tasting machines" that use DNA molecules as billions of small "sensors" to imitate human sense of taste with unprecedented accuracy.
