  • Canola

    Strong seed pods

    Canola seed pods contain a valuable freight. However, if the seed pods open prematurely in the field, many of the seeds end up on the ground. Researchers at Bayer CropScience have now developed a variety of canola with especially robust seed pods.

  • Solar Impulse

    Flying laboratory

    Materials engineers develop many of their ideas initially for the aviation industry, but in doing so also stimulate advancements in numerous other sectors, such as automotive. Premium materials from Bayer MaterialScience provide for greater efficiency in these applications.

  • Special feature

    Molecular gatekeepers

    The cells in the bodies of humans and animals communicate with each other by means of electrical and chemical signals. The most important elements in the information cascade are ion channels. These protein molecules are therefore potential targets for new drug products, but also for insecticides and parasiticides.
