Hebrew U. Develops Bio-Sensor to Detect Early Signs of Plant Stress
and Prevent Crop Failures from Worldwide Climate Changes
In an effort to increase agricultural productivity and limit waste, a team of researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU)’s Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment developed a method to detect signs of stress before the plant is damaged. Read more about How Does a Potato Feel?
The GCCR (GLOBAL CONSORTIUM FOR CHEMOSENSORY RESEARCH) is a group of 600 scientists, clinicians, and patient advocates across 50 countries founded in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our goal is to collect evidence-based information to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Spectral assessment of plant traits: can we assess what we do not see?
The Plant Sensing Laboratory (PSL) was established in 2018 and its main focus is at early stress detection and identification, and yield prediction based on sensing plant trait assessment. We are using spectral sensors (i.e., multi- and hyper- spectral cameras and spectro radiometrs) mounted on ground, airborne and spaceborne platforms to acquire spectral data.Read more >
We might refer to someone’s personality as “mousy,” but in truth, mice have a range of personalities nearly as great as our own. ...A quantitative understanding of the traits that make each animal an individual might help answer some of the open questions in science concerning the connections between genes and behavior. The findings of this research were published in Nature Neuroscience. Dr. Oren Forkosh, then a postdoctoral fellow who led the research in Prof. Chen’s group in Germany, explains that understanding how genetics contribute to behavior has remained an open question. Personality, scientists hypothesized, might be the “glue” that binds the two together: both genes and epigenetics (which determines how the genes are expressed) contribute to personality formation; in turn, one’s personality will determine, to a great extent, how one behaves in any given situation.Read more >
The secret to better equine wound healing might have been with us all along, thanks to bees.
"When field practitioners applied MGH to horses’ wounds prior to suturing, the defects were more likely to have complete wound healing within two weeks, before suture removal, than horses that didn’t receive MGH, said Gal Kelmer, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, ECVS, of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Koret School of Veterinary Medicine, in Beit Dagan, Israel.Read more >
