Let’s craft an ideal 21st century city out of KL

Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, has a rich history dating back to the late 1800s. It began as a small tin-mining settlement in the 1850s and was granted city status in 1972.

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? 😃
