A new research project SEEDFOOD will attempt to change this by creating new fundamental knowledge, so we can use the proteins for food in the future. The research project has been established with a grant of DKK 56 million kroner from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Challenge Programme and is being led from Department of Food Science at University of Copenhagen.

Despite the devastating impact the emerald ashborer beetle has had on forests in the eastern and midwestern parts of the U.S., climate change will have a much larger and widespread impact on these landscapes through the end of the century, according to researchers.

The recent attacks against Asian Americans, have put Asians in the U.S. in the spotlight. A new Dartmouth study explores who Asian Americans are today and the range of identities this category encompasses. Based on 2016 pre-election survey data, the study finds that Asian Americans tend to have progressive opinions towards public policy, including on healthcare, education, climate change, and racial justice, but diverge on views towards Muslim immigration.
New research suggests that measuring how patterns of gene expression in white blood cells change in children starting in infancy - before autoantibodies appear indicating an autoimmune reaction against pancreatic β cells - can predict earlier and more robustly which genetically-susceptible individuals will progress to T1D. The international study, based on blood samples longitudinally collected from 400 children in The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) consortium, included co-investigators from the University of South Florida Health Informatics Institute.

Antarctica has experienced significant temperature changes, especially since the last glacial period. An international collaboration including scientists from the CNRS1 has now challenged previously accepted estimates of these variations, using new measurements published on June 4, 2021 in Science. Their study highlights differences in behavior between East and West Antarctica, connected in particular to differing variations in their altitude.
Carbon loss in Canadian peatland is projected to increase by 103 per cent under a high emission scenario, according to new research led by scientists from the University of Waterloo.

A new study published in the journal Diversity and Distributions predicts massive range declines of Africa's great apes -- gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos -- due to the impacts of climate change, land-use changes and human population growth.
