Researchers at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University led by Jim Westwood are exploring a new arena of science: inter-organism communication at the molecular level. This gives a new insight on finding ways to fight parasitic weeds that affects crop production globally.

Genetic editing of fruits and other crops could be the way to go in biotech progress, that is according to an article published in Trends in Biotechnology on August 13, 2014. According to Chidananda Nagamangala Kanchiswamy of Agrario San Michele in Italy, one of the authors of the article, genetically edited organisms (GEOs) do not have inserted genes from other organisms.

For a long time, it has been unclear to scientists how the crucial processes of growth and pattern formation in plants were controlled during tissue formation. Recently, though, biochemists from Wageningen University discovered that pattern formation of the vascular tissues take place when the embryo only contains four vascular precursor cells.

Numbers of South Sudanese facing crisis or emergency levels of food insecurity is projected to have reached 3.9 million by August. Continued efforts to provide farmers, fishers and pastoralists in South Sudan with life-saving emergency livelihood kits are at risk due to a funding shortfall, aggravating the risk of famine in some areas of the country, FAO warned today.

The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) released the final environmental impact statement (EIS) for corn and soybean plant resistant to herbicide 2,4-D. The draft EIS was released for comments in January and has received 10,140 responses.

Scientists are now developing a glow-in-the-dark plant using synthetic biology. The Glowing Plant project aims to develop functional plants for homes that could repel insects or work as air fresheners. The inspiration behind the original glowing plant was to rethink street or nighttime lighting.

Metal contamination is widespread and there is a growing need to detoxify polluted ecosystems. Industrial wastewater, surface water and ground water all need to be cleansed to lessen soil contamination. Bacteria, which contain metal transporters, can provide a potential alternative to water detoxification.

Plants use methionine for the production of ethylene, an important plant hormone. Previous studies have reported that high levels of methionine affects the rhizosphere bacterial population involved in soil nitrogen fixation. Thus, Jingang Liang of Nanjing Agricultural University (China) and colleagues examined if the transgenic line of Zigongdongdou soybean cultivar (ZD91) with improved methionine production could affect the populations of rhizosphere bacteria.

Metals can accumulate inside plants when absorbed through the roots. Excess metals in plants can lead to increased ethylene production. Ann Cuypers, from Hasselt University in Belgium, and her team studied the effects of cadmium (Cd) on ethylene and its precursor 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC). The expression of the ethylene responsive genes, were also examined in Arabidopsis thaliana.
