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.

While many countries are still deliberating about regulating products of new breeding techniquesArgentina has now accumulated four years of experience in implementing a pioneer regulation for NBT products. Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology released an article with an analysis of the effects on economic innovation of such regulations.

Natural photosynthetic systems and photocatalysis share several fundamental processes in common including light energy conversion and utilization, such as exciton (excited state) generation/splitting and charge migration. The high efficiency of light conversion to chemical redox equivalents in natural photosynthesis is achieved by an electron transfer cascade resulting in a long-distance hole and electron separation across the membrane.

The ongoing health crisis around COVID19 has affected all walks of life. Protecting lives of people suffering from the disease as well as frontline health responders have been the priority of nations. Governments have swung into actions since the Corona virus attack created an unprecedented situation. India declared a three-week nation-wide lockdown till mid-April in the initial phase, which has subsequently been extended till May 3  for achieving satisfactory containment of the virus spread.

Making sure that the collections of beans, cassava, bananas, and forages remain alive, even during the quarantine, is an essential job of the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT in order to preserve the world’s biodiversity and food safety. From its work sites in laboratories, greenhouses, and experimental fields in Palmira, Colombia, and at the University of Louvain

Kuleana's founder Jacek Prus came up with the idea to initially address problems caused by the high demand for tuna. For instance, overfishing is one of the major factors that contributed to the dwindling number of bluefin tuna species, not to mention the decreased fish stock levels in the market. Another factor is the health concerns posed by eating raw tuna.

Rothamsted Research scientists have successfully applied genetic engineering techniques developed for crop improvement to be used in weeds – allowing them, for the first time, to directly study the genetic mechanisms responsible for herbicide resistance. In a paper in Plant Physiology, the group reports that they used plant viruses to switch off weed genes, or alternatively, ramp up the production of specific proteins by weeds in the laboratory.
