Researchers from The Australian National University have discovered a new cellular communication process used by plants to respond to drought. The team, led by Dr Gonzalo Estavillo and Professor Barry Pogson in the ANU Research School of Biology, examined a small, rapid-growing plant called Arabidopsis, a relative of canola.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are working on communication solutions for networks so futuristic they don’t even exist yet. The team is investigating how to get devices a million times smaller than the length of an ant to communicate with one another to form nanonetworks. And they are using a different take on “cellular” communication—namely how bacteria communicate with one another—to find a solution.
