In 2005, the area of maize in Vietnam was 1.052 million hectares which increased by 100,000 hectares only in 2016. It is projected that in the coming years, the area might be reduced to less than 1 million hectares which will increase Vietnam's dependency on imported products. According to the report of the Department of Crop Production, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on maize production and orientation of development in 2016

Research led by University of Pennsylvania biologists has identified small DNA sequences in plant that act as signposts for shutting off gene activity, directing the placement of proteins that silence gene expression. Manipulation of these short DNA fragments promises plants with enhanced activation of certain traits.

Biologists led by Prof. Erika Isono from Konstanz University have discovered a previously unknown function of the SH3P2 protein, which has an important role in protein transport.

Plasma membrane proteins that will be degraded are transported to the vacoule, the largest compartment in the plant cell.

During their August plenary meeting, the National Technical Biosafety Commission (CTNBio) of Brazil has approved a new variety of Bt soybean for planting, human consumption, and animal consumption. In addition to insect resistance, the genetically modified (GM) soybean has tolerance to three herbicides: glyphosate, glufosinate, and dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D).

The total number of suspected cholera cases in Yemen this year hit the half a million mark on Sunday, and nearly 2000 people have died since the outbreak began to spread rapidly at the end of April. The spread of cholera has slowed significantly in some areas compared to peak levels but the disease is still spreading fast in more recently affected districts, which are recording large numbers of cases.

The resource-poor farmers residing in stress-prone areas form the section of our society that is highly vulnerable to poverty and hunger. Environmental stresses such as drought, flood, and salinity frequently destroy their food crops, forcing them to leave their agricultural fields fallow. These environmental conditions affect the poorest farmers—women,

The CRISPR-Cas9 system is a plant breeding innovation that uses site-directed nucleases to target and modify DNA with great accuracy. Developed in 2012 by scientists from the University of California, Berkeley, CRISPR-Cas9 has received a lot of attention in recent years due to its range of applications, including biological research, breeding and development of agricultural crops and animals, and human health applications
