SKA ‘a chance for Africa to shine’

first_img9 October 2012 Winning the right to co-host the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) has given South Africa and Africa as a whole a platform to prove to the world that the continent has what it takes to deliver a cutting-edge science project, says SKA associate director Professor Justin Jonas. Speaking at a gala dinner in Carnarvon on Monday, ahead of President Jacob Zuma’s visit to the site of the SKA in the Northern Cape, Jonas expressed faith in the ability of South Africa and its partners on the continent to successfully pull off the venture. “I am confident we are going to do that,” said Jonas.SA, Australia to share hosting of SKA In May this year, the SKA Organisation announced that South Africa and Australia were to share the hosting of the most advanced scientific project in the world. The two biggest components of the SKA will be built in Africa, while one will be built in Australia. About 70% of the facility will be built in Africa. Both South Africa and Australia have been working on precursors to the SKA, the 64-dish MeerKAT telescope and the 36-dish SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) respectively. According to Jonas, the SKA will be a massive scientific infrastructure, and its development and construction will require participation by a wide range of industries to achieve its ambitious performance, schedule and cost targets. Jonas is confident that by 2016, the project will be ready. In all, more than 2 500 dishes are expected to be built.SKA to draw scientists, engineers to Africa South Africa, as co-host of the SKA, is expected to become a global centre for information technology, fundamental physics, astronomy and high-tech engineering, drawing top scientists and engineers from around the world. Dr Bernie Fanaroff, SKA project director, said he was confident that South Africa and its partners would make the SKA project a reality. “We have an outstanding site for the SKA, as well as the people and the expertise to build and operate this mega-instrument,” said Fanaroff. The MeerKAT Array, currently taking shape in South Africa’s Karoo region, is a world-class radio telescope designed to do ground-breaking science. It will be the largest and most sensitive radio telescope in the southern hemisphere until the SKA is completed around 2024. Close to 100 young scientists and engineers are working on the MeerKAT project. The MeerKAT will consist of 64 dishes of 13.5-m diameter each, with an offset Gregorian configuration. The commissioning of the MeerKAT will take place in 2014 and 2015, with the array coming online for science operations in 2016. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

Two new mechanisms for herbicide resistance found in Palmer amaranth

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Palmer amaranth is a nightmare of a weed, causing yield losses up to 80% in severely infested soybean fields. It scoffs at farmers’ attempts at control, having evolved resistance to six classes of herbicides since its discovery in the United States 100 years ago. And now, scientists have discovered it has two new tricks up its sleeve.About a year ago, a group of researchers discovered Palmer is resistant to the herbicide class known as PPO-inhibitors, due to a mutation — known as the glycine 210 deletion — on the PPX2 gene.“We were using a quick test that we originally developed for waterhemp to determine PPO-resistance based on that mutation. A lot of times, the test worked. But people were bringing in samples that they were fairly confident were resistant, and the mutation wasn’t showing up. We started to suspect there was another mechanism out there,” said Patrick Tranel, University of Illinois molecular weed scientist.Tranel and his colleagues decided to sequence the PPX2 gene in plants from Tennessee and Arkansas to see if they could find additional mutations. Sure enough, they found not one, but two, located on the R98 region of the gene.“Almost all of the PPO-resistant plants we tested had either the glycine 210 deletion or one of the two new R98 mutations. None of the mutations were found in the sensitive plants we tested,” Tranel said.Furthermore, some of the resistant plants had both the glycine 210 deletion and one of the new R98 mutations. Tranel says it is too early to say what that could mean for those plants. In fact, there is a lot left to learn about this resistance mechanism.“We don’t know what level of resistance the new mutations confer relative to glycine 210,” Tranel said. “There are a lot of different PPO-inhibiting herbicides. Glycine 210 causes resistance to all of them, but we don’t know yet if the R98 mutations do.”The team is now growing plants to use in follow-up experiments. Tranel hopes they will be able to determine how common the three mutations are in any given population.“That way, when a farmer sends us a resistant plant and it doesn’t come back with the glycine 210 deletion, we will be able to tell him how likely it is that he’s dealing with another one of these mutations,” he said.In the meantime, other research groups or plant testing facilities could use the new genetic assay to detect the mutations in Palmer samples. Tranel hopes they will.“The more labs testing for this, the more we learn about how widespread the mutation is,” he said.last_img read more

Google Waymo unveils customized self-driving minivan

World Cup 2019: Hundred vs Pakistan means a lot to me, says David Warner

first_imgDavid Warner on Wednesday scored a well-paced 111-ball 107 as Australia defeated Pakistan by 41 runs in a tense ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash at Taunton to move to No.2 in the World Cup 2019 points table.It was an all-round effort from Australia that helped them get the better of unpredictable Pakistan in a tense clash. Aaron Finch played a captain’s knock and hammered a fearless 82 before Warner went on to hit his 15th ODI hundred.After the wicket of Warner, Amir wreaked havoc on Australia’s batting order as he became the 7th Pakistani bowler to take a five-wicket haul in World Cup history and was the reason why Australia managed only 142 for 9 off 24 overs after scoring 165 for 1 of the first 25 overs.Australia vs Pakistan, World Cup 2019: Report | Highlights”When I got out, we had 70 balls to go. As a batter, you want to bat 50 overs. We should’ve been around 340-350, credit to Pakistan’s bowlers. Their second spells were outstanding and they made it hard for us,” Man of the Match winner David Warner said during a post-match interview.Warner added that he had to adapt as there was movement early on and get on top of the back of the length deliveries.”It was a used wicket; it was a tad dry and they bowled very straight lines to me and gave me no width. There was a bit of movement early on, so I had to be a lot tighter,” David Warner said.Warner admitted that there were some great efforts from Pakistan which made it a great game of Cricket. He also went on to add that this century meant a lot for him as a batsman. This was Warner’s 1st hundred for Australia since the ball-tampering scandal and his second in World Cups.advertisement”This century means a lot as a batsman. Some great efforts from Pakistan.
