Cake making incorporates mixing flour, sugar, margarine, egg and baking powder into a thick batter which is finally transformed by heating into a solid foam with characteristic microstructural elements. This session will discuss the characterization of cake microstructural features with an emphasis on the influence of the ingredients and mixing time. The application of an innovative experimental design will be outlined. The microstructural characterization is then used to explain the function of the product by interpreting its textural properties.

Whereas human beings have had cancer throughout recorded history, cancer is a very hot topic for the moment and cancer research is going through a paradigm shift. Traditionally, cancer research has been centered on transcriptional alterations and changes in protein coding genes. It is becoming clear now that cancer cells manage to deregulate almost any cell biological control mechanism in the cell, leading to the emergence of several exciting research areas and novel opportunities for therapeutic intervention. At this meeting, world leaders will cover following topics:

Environmental savings in tomato production under optimal agrochemicals management: a modeling approach

06
Mar
2017

The use of agrochemicals has been recognized as one of the main environmental burdens in agriculture. Actual management practices aggravate pollution issues due to overdosing and untimely applications, even more if farmers are reluctant to change their practices. The application of crop modeling coupled to environmental impact tools offers an alternative to analyze improved production scenarios. The objective of this study was to estimate the environmental savings due to optimized agrochemicals management for the tomato production in Colombia.
