Climate changes and an increasing population make it imperative to find alternatives to the crops that feed the world population today. The Novo Nordisk Foundation has given DKK 60 million to the research project…

In the future, the newly discovered mechanism will potentially enable insertion of the sensor specifically into diseased cells and may allow diagnosis at the single cell level. Figure: Rasmus Peter Thomsen/AU.
