Thirteen professors from Singapore have been named among the world's best and brightest in a new report.

Eight from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and five from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) - specialising in areas including agricultural science and conservation - were named by business information firm Thomson Reuters in its report: The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds: 2014.

It is the largest number of researchers from Singapore to feature on the global list of top scientific researchers which this year featured about 3,200.

It is the third time the New York-based firm has compiled such a list. Only two NUS researchers and one from NTU were named on the first one in 2001.
