Dr. Morris said that their discovery is significant as it will help in developing drought resistant crops in the future. He said, "As climate change gathers pace and we experience more extreme seasons, it is essential we can maintain continuity of supply. This is significant for key industries like Scotch whiskey, one of the UK's leading export items." He added that their discovery also has implications for other cereal crops including wheatmaize, and rice.

Researchers from Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain and Durham University in the UK developed a tried and tested cloning system for genome editing with a monitoring module that lights up when a transgene is detected. This new technique provides an option for researchers to have an efficient elimination of editing system after genome editing, minimizing the chance of off-target mutations, and also allows development of edited plants free of foreign DNA.

By endorsing a declaration to improving bioscience communication in Africa, the delegates vowed to foster open and transparent dialogue with all stakeholders, including those with divergent views on genome editing. This, they observed, could help build consensus, common understanding and effective use of emerging technologies. The declaration captures far-reaching resolutions that include a call to encourage public participation in research direction and policy formulation on genome editing. Awareness creation among policy and decision makers on the technology was also prioritized.

An international team of plant scientists has identified the sensors that plants use to navigate between drying out and starving in dry conditions. Led by Rainer Hedrich, a biophysicist from Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg in Bavaria, Germany, the research team published the results of their research in Nature Plants.

Researchers have developed a rain-resistant wheat variety using the CRISPR-Cas9 system. This breakthrough could lead to the development of better-quality flour. The study was published in Cell Reports. Researchers from the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO) and Okayama University said that genome editing helped them develop the new wheat variety in just about a year

Africa continues to make steady progress in the adoption of biotech crops with Nigeria becoming the first country in the world to approve biotech cowpea, thus, adding a new biotech crop to the global biotech basket, according to ISAAA's latest report, Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops in 2018. The Kingdom of eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) joined South Africa and Sudan in planting biotech crops in Africa

To mitigate the food security and economic risks of South Asia’s frequent and intense droughts, scientists and policymakers from the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) recently joined forces to launch an innovative decision support and agricultural planning system that combines remote sensing and  climate data analysis for drought monitoring and early warning.

This perspective addresses recent advances in lipid transport across the Gram-negative inner and outer membranes. While we include a summary of previously existing literature regarding this topic, we focus on the maintenance of lipid asymmetry (Mla) pathway. Discovered in 2009 by the Silhavy group [J. C. Malinverni, T. J. Silhavy, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 106, 8009–8014 (2009)],

The intricate roots of the mangrove can be easily recognized from a distance. Their trees and shrubs grow along salty or brackish waters with accumulated sediments in mud. Mangroves are one of the world's most biodiverse ecosystems and play an essential role to ecological balance and community livelihoods. But in many areas across West Africa, these wildlife-rich wetlands are under threat due to the effects of climate change and unsustainable wood cutting.
