Ragbi kita perlu naturalisasi

Siapa tahu, satu hari nanti mungkin pasukan Bunga Raya juga mampu membuat kejutan sebagaimana dilakukan oleh pasukan naturalisasi UAE (ranking ke-73 dunia) yang mengalahkan Korea Selatan (ranking ke-33 dunia, ke-3 Asia) dengan mata 36 berbalas 32 di ARC 2024?

Exploring our own Renaissance

The Renaissance, a period of rebirth in arts, science, and culture from 1359 to 1600, was a time when society celebrated versatility. This era saw the emergence of polymaths—individuals who excelled in multiple fields. Leonardo da Vinci, one of the most iconic figures of the Renaissance, epitomised this ideal.

Did you know that UM researchers can speed up ripening of tomatoes?

Genetic analysis studies by Dr. Najiah Mohd. Sadali at University of Oxford showed that the process is controlled by SP1 protein. Her work concluded that the speed of ripening of tomatoes can be increased without affecting the taste and texture of the fruit.

Currently Dr. Najiah is looking at adapting her research work to increase the yield of palm oil. Preliminary results have shown that they are capable of increasing 30% oil content.

This Selangor-born scientist hoped that her work could help to ensure a sustainable agriculture for the country and the world.

Contact her at najiahms@um.edu.my if you would like to discuss on the genetic basis of fruit ripening, or listening to her experiences studying in Oxford, ya? 😃
