Whole Grains Prevent Chronic Lifestyle Diseases in More Ways Than One

March 13, 2017

Whole grains have more health benefits to offer other than those from consuming fiber. These plant foods are also unique and rich sources of phytochemicals, bioactive compounds exclusively produced by plants that lower the risk of chronic disease. Whole grains contain dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, and phytochemicals, but only the former two components have […]

Duke Energy Contributes $350,000 to NCRC’s P2EP

July 15, 2015

Wound-healing properties of oats and the nutritional content of cooked versus uncooked broccoli are just two of the research projects David Phillips, district manager with Duke Energy North Carolina, learned about when he visited the NC Research Campus’ (NCRC) Plant Pathways Elucidation Project (P2EP) on Monday, July 13. Phillips presented $100,000 to P2EP. The check […]

September 27, 2014

A major quantitative trait locus conferring adult plant partial resistance to crown rust in oat. BMC Plant Biol. 2014 Sep 27, Lin Y, Gnanesh BN, Chong J, Chen G, Beattie AD, Mitchell Fetch JW, Kutcher H, Eckstein PE, Menzies JG, Jackson EW, McCartney CA. Abstract BackgroundCrown rust, caused by Puccinia coronata f. sp. avenae, is the most important disease of oat worldwide. Adult plant resistance (APR), based upon partial resistance, has proven to be a durable rust management strategy in other […]

NCRC, RCCC & P2EP: All the Tools for a Career in Science

August 06, 2014

To launch careers in science, Brooklyn Phillips, Marlinda Davis and Carolyn Munson knew they needed two things-  a degree and hands-on laboratory experience. At the NC Research Campus (NCRC), the three women found both. They are all working toward an applied science degree in biotechnology at the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Biotechnology Training Center at the […]

Dole Growing Scientific Minds of Tomorrow

August 01, 2014

As published in the Dole Nutrition Institute August 2014 newsletter. Scientific discoveries — like a recently published study showing blueberry compounds’ potential to help prevent Parkinson’s — beg more fundamental questions about fruit and vegetables.  Such as what compounds do these plants make?  And how do they make them? These are the questions being tackled […]
