e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Mycotoxins and mycotoxicoses: A 2004 update


A compilation of some current activities in the area of mycotoxins and mycotoxicoses is presented. Important aspects of current research in pre-harvest strategies for the control of mycotoxins in crops include development of resistant crops using proteomics and genomic approaches for the fungal pathogen. Transgenic plants providing reduced levels or elimination of mycotoxins are some possibilities being investigated. The use of bio-control agents is providing success in maize, cottonseed and peanuts. Further understanding of the relationships of certain mycotoxins to human and animal disease is being elucidated and continues to be a need within the medical/veterinary communities. The conceptual development and implementation of a HACCP program for the control of mycotoxins from "Farm to Fork" is an important facet of some international agencies. Standardised international regulations based on sound risks for mycotoxins are a continuing need to equilibrate trade among nations. Development of rapid methods for analysis using new, currently available technologies will increase the usefulness of such tests worldwide. Litigation costs involving mycotoxins within certain countries have increased significantly because the lack of exposure data in animals allows for cases to continue into the courtroom. The true economics of the mycotoxin problem are not understood and likely is far more significant than we currently estimate. The knowledge base accrued in developed countries must be used in advancing the education of those in developing countries to reduce mycotoxin occurrence in commodities used in traditional foods, beverages and medicines. Finally, with most mycotoxin problems, the consideration for exposure involves ingestion or the oral/alimentary route of exposure. However, there is now sufficient information to consider respiratory exposure to mycotoxins to be an area of concern for human and animal health and possibly of significance to a safe food supply of animal origin. Information as an indication of the importance of this kind of exposure involves aflatoxins, Stachybotrys toxins and ochratoxin.
