Brazilian Research on Bioenergy

Mini 020FAPESP – Brazil is outstanding as the world’s most intensive user of bioethanol as an alternative to gasoline for powering transport. Total bioethanol production for 2012/13 is projected at 23.9 billion liters in 437 plants, 168 of which are dedicated exclusively to ethanol. In 2012/13 around 51 per cent of the 602 million tons of sugarcane will be used for ethanol and 49 per cent for sugar production. The total sugarcane planted area in Brazil is around 8 million hectares (ha). This accounts for only around 2-3 per cent of total area devoted to agriculture.

Proteomics releases a special edition dedicated to Brazil

By Karina Toledo

Agência FAPESP – Already the country of soccer and Carnival, Brazil could soon also be known as the “country of proteomics”—so says the Letter from the Editor of the October issue of the journal Proteomics, one of the field’s most important publications.

Aside from the green and yellow flag on the cover, the special edition entitled “Proteomics in Brazil” contains 16 articles by Brazilian researchers. It was coordinated by Daniel Martins de Souza, a former FAPESP doctoral fellow who today works as an associate researcher for the Max-Planck-Institut für Psychiatrie and the Ludwig Maximilians Universität, both in Germany.

“This is the first time that the journal has dedicated an entire edition to one country,” Souza told Agência FAPESP. Souza came up with the idea of the special issue, which was well received by Editor-in-Chief Michael Dunn.

“Dunn told me that the number of articles submitted by Brazilians had increased, so I suggested a special edition including only Brazilian research. He agreed and invited me to coordinate the issue,” said Souza.
