Jose Avila added: "This, also a natural enemy, is a fungus that attacks soybean caterpillars and the false mousse, causing diseases in these defoliation insects. Its presence in the crops is very important, because it helps fight pests,"

A study carried out in the south of Mato Grosso do Sul has shown that controlling bedbugs and caterpillars of soybeans following the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) guidelines can increase the producer's profit margin by promoting an economy of just over R$125.00 per hectare....

David Miller said: "Most of the information that you need to create this extraordinarily complex network of connected cells—the brain—is genetically encoded. The overall architecture is a readout of a genetic program,"

David Miller said: "Of course, worms are not people,"

David Miller said: "We have all this descriptive information about structure and wiring, and we have a lot of functional information," "What we don't have, yet, is a gene expression map—which genes are turned on in each neuron to make it unique and different from another"

David Miller said: "This is going to be a rich resource of high-resolution information about the worm nervous system that can be used to develop testable hypotheses," "We still have so many basic questions about our brains, and one of the biggest and most complicated questions is: How does a genetic program instruct neurons to make connections with some partners and not others? I think a simple model is the best place to start asking this question"
