Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Agroscope conducted a study to investigate the effects of insect resistant rice expressing Cry1C protein on green lacewing (Chrysoperla sinica) in laboratory assays. Results showed that the green lacewing larvae fed with diet containing purified Cry1C protein at worst exposure scenario did not exhibit any adverse reactions compared to those fed with avidin or potassium arsenate.

Researchers from ETH Zurich and Julius Kühn Institute have created the first fire-blight resistant apple. The researchers identified and isolated the gene for fire-blight resistance in a wild apple for the first time and confirmed its function as a resistance-mediating gene. The newly discovered gene carries the genetic code for a protein that recognizes a surface protein of the pathogen, triggering a defense response in the affected plant.

University of Illinois scientists used a digital model to simulate how adding genes from cyanobacteria might improve photosynthesis inplants. Cyanobacteria, which are photosynthetic algae, contains small structures called carboxysomes that concentrate carbon dioxide in the area where photosynthesis occurs. The research team led by Prof. Stephen Long found  that adding a gene for bicarbonate transporter that carries the carbon dioxide across the carboxysome membrane leads to improvement in photosynthesis by 6%.

As part of the world-wide centenary celebrations of the birth of the Nobel Peace Laureate, Norman Borlaug, ISAAA commissioned a Borlaug Emblem "Celebrating Borlaug's 100 Years" embodying the life and legacy of Dr. Norman Borlaug, 25 March 1914 to 25 March 2014. The ISAAA Borlaug emblem features the US Congressional gold medal he was awarded, and a sculpture of Borlaug, designed by the renowned sculptor,

This work presents a model for the joint analysis of a binomial and a Gaussian trait using a recursive parametrization that leads to a computationally efficient implementation. The model is illustrated in an analysis of mortality and litter size in two breeds of Danish pigs, Landrace and Yorkshire.

Macario López Meléndez lives in Salale, a village in Nicaragua affected by climate variability: rain, high temperatures, hurricane winds, droughts and soil erosion. This humble smallholder farmer says that in the dry season of January to May, the community suffers from food and drinking-water shortages.

FAO launched the report Farmers’ Organizations in Bangladesh: A Mapping and Capacity Assessment at an interactive event in Dhaka on 5 March, 2014. The report was produced under the Technical Assistance component of the Integrated Agricultural Productivity Project (IAPP) implemented by FAO-Bangladesh and financed by the Global Agriculture and Food Security Programme (GAFSP).

The 2014 EU Innovation Scoreboard published by the European Commission stressed that Europe risks becoming the world's research hub while innovative products and processes and the jobs and growth that go with their development, will be found in other areas. It was reported that there is an improvement in closing the innovation divide with the rest of the world, however, Europe is still behind the innovations of countries like Japan, South Korea, and the U.S.

The Philippines reached around 800,000 hectares of biotech corn cultivation in 2013, up from 750,000 hectares in 2012, landing it in the 12th place among the top countries adopting biotech crops. This was reported in a media conference organized by ISAAA, Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), and the Biotechnology for Life Media and Advocacy Resource Center (BMARC) on March 6, 2014 at Dusit Thani Hotel, Makati City.

A recent discovery by a research team from Purdue University could lead to easier genetic modification of plants considered recalcitrant to standard methods, including varieties of economically important crops.  The team identified a gene that influences susceptibility to infection by Agrobacterium tumefaciens, a bacterium used to insert genes into plants to produce desired traits such as resistance to pests, diseases or harsh environmental conditions, or to improve the nutrition or shelf life of a crop.
