GM male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes carry a gene that is lethal to female offspring. As these engineered males mate with the wild females, the female offspring will expire before they can reproduce. The lethal gene is carried by the male offspring and passed on to half of their progeny. Eventually, the population of A. aegypti mosquitoes is expected to reduce significantly, preventing the transmission of vector-borne diseases such as Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya, and Yellow Fever.

Researchers at the University for Development Studies conducted a survey to investigate the farmer perceptions and acceptance of GM technology in Ghana. The results, published in the African Journal of Agricultural Research, show that farmers have high hopes for the upcoming release of GM crops in the country. A total of 360 smallholder farmers from 10 districts in northern Ghana were interviewed and involved in focus group discussions.

Experts from China and Germany published a review about the impact of novel plant breeding techniques on boosting cereal crops' production. The open-access article is released in Plants journal. Cereals are the major source of human food globally. With the continuously increasing demand for food, changing climate conditions, and prevalence of diseases, cereal production has been a challenge.

Researchers from the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) have produced the genome sequence of signal grass (Urochloa ruziziensis), one of the most used forage grasses in tropical agriculture. Embrapa researcher Marco Pessoa Filho explains that U. ruziziensis has evolutionary proximity to other Urochloa species most used in cultivated tropical pastures – U. brizanthaU. decumbens, and U. humidicola.

By investigating the bibliographic trends from research outputs about the consumer perception and genetically modified (GM) foods preference, researchers were not only able to identify links between GM food research and the countries that publish more about it than others, but they were also able to make policy recommendations based on the available data. A total of 543 journal articles published between 1981 and 2021 were used for the research.

To complement the adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops, experts recommend the conduct of national and international training courses, effective communication among key players, the adoption of bottom-up management, identifying experienced managers, involving experts in the planning and development stages of GM crops, and sharing of personal experiences to the audience to favorably change people's attitude towards GM crops.

The celebrations in Nairobi – home to the Institute’s regional offices in East and Southern Africa, build upon earlier festivities launched by the Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi at ICRISAT’s global headquarters in Hyderabad, India in February. ICRISAT which won the Africa Food Prize in 2021, has an illustrious history of developing higher yielding and drought tolerant crop varieties, essential to the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in the semi-arid tropics.

Under the patronage of President Félix Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of Congo, IITA organized a planning conference for the Agenda for the Transformation of Agriculture in the Democratic Republic of Congo (ATA-DRC). The meeting took place at the “President Olusegun Obasanjo, IITA Research campus” in South Kivu from 23 to 25 February.

A team of researchers from the United States and the United Kingdom has developed a gene drive effector that can delay Plasmodium development in transgenic Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes using antimicrobial peptides in the midgut. This technique could be used to eliminate malaria under different transmission scenarios.

Recent advances in gene editing technology to control diseases in banana holds prospects to alleviate the industry, particularly to improve production, food security, and farmers' income. The banana industry of East Africa, the largest producer and consumer of bananas in the region, is constantly threatened by different banana bacterial diseases like moko, bugtok, blood, and, most destructive, the banana Xanthomonas wilt (BXW).
