An Israeli team of scientists has developed a new technology which may enable crops to weather draughts world-wide, thus minimizing famine and strife. The team, led by Professor Shimon Gepstein, Chancellor of the Kinneret College, genetically engineered a plant that can withstand draughts by ‘freezing itself’ after not receiving water for a certain period of time, and then ‘returning to life’ after the water supply is renewed, and this without incurring any damage to the plant’s physical structure.
