Agricultural economist Dr. Matin Qaim of the University of Göttingen in Germany recommends that regulatory reforms and a more science-based public debate towards new plant breeding technologies are necessary to maximize the potential of this new science that can greatly contribute to sustainable agricultural development and food security, especially in developing countries.

As plants are exposed to light, the protein complex photosystem II (PSII) energizes electrons to help power photosynthesis. But heat or intense light can damage a key subunit, known as D1, and stop PSII's work until the plant makes and inserts a new D1 into the complex. Chloroplasts have their own DNA, including a gene for D1, and most biologists assumed the protein had to be made there.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, WHO has seen a dramatic increase in the number of cyber attacks directed at its staff, and email scams targeting the public at large. This week, some 450 active WHO email addresses and passwords were leaked online along with thousands belonging to others working on the novel coronavirus response. The leaked credentials did not put WHO systems at risk because the data was not recent. However, the attack did impact an older extranet system, used by current and retired staff as well as partners.

With half of the planet’s population locked down, the global economy brought to a halt and the number of cases reaching into the millions, it is clear that the COVID-19 pandemic is the biggest crisis of our time. As in many other places in the world, prospects in the Latin America and the Caribbean region (LAC) seem grim. With 98,202 cases and 4,505 deaths confirmed in the region as of 20 April, the IMF foresees a regional GDP drop of 5.2 per cent.

The COVID-19 pandemic has stopped many businesses and closed most production, but this isn’t true for the farmers and food producers who need to keep working so that the world can continue to eat. Their vital contribution to the pandemic response cannot be overlooked. In this crisis, eating healthy with fresh fruits and vegetables is even more important and for this we rely on the farmers worldwide who are continuing to harvest and produce food for us. They are our Food Heroes, working despite the risks of the virus, to bring us the food on which we depend.

Los Baños, Philippines, and Cleveland, USA - The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and AgriPlex Genomics have entered a partnership to combine AgriPlex’s NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) genotyping technology with IRRI’s advanced breeding of rice and DNA marker development. Over the past few years, the two organizations have successfully created a comprehensive SNP (single nucleotide polymorphisms) panel and a workflow for evaluating diverse indica rice varieties. This collaboration combines IRRI’s expertise in developing high-quality markers for use in rice breeding and quality control with AgriPlex’s innovative PlexSeqTM NGS platform.

FAO Director-General QU Dongyu held virtual talks today with Phil Hogan, the European Commissioner for Trade. Both parties stressed their full agreement on the importance of keeping food supply chains open in times of the COVID-19 pandemic and discussed ways to strengthen their collaboration on this issue. The EU commissioner and the Director-General concurred on the vision that trade restrictions and stockpiling are counterproductive, may threaten food supply and hamper COVID-19 response.

Gene editing technology, CRISPR, will be harnessed to develop new varieties of berries. The developers, fruit company Pairwise Food Systems and berry-breeder company Plant Sciences Inc. (PSI), aim to improve the taste and shelf-life of berries and make them available all year round. Pairwise will use its unique gene editing capabilities on PSI's berry germplasm to modify berry DNA sequences and retain good traits while getting rid of the lesser desirable traits.

Researchers from the University of Leiden have discovered a gene that allows annual plants to grow after flowering, instead of dying. Using Arabidopsis, first author Omid Karami demonstrated how the AHL15 gene works. He overexpressed the gene in Arabidopsis so that it is much more active than normal.

To continue its goal of providing effective platforms of communicating science to major stakeholders from different parts of the world, the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) launches Science Speaks, a brand new blog featuring key activities, events, and developments of ISAAA, its global network of Biotechnology Information Centers, and other partners. A message from ISAAA's Global Coordinator, Dr. Mahaletchumy Arujanan welcomes Science Speaks visitors.
