Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) scientists developed CRISPR-Kill, a new technique to remove the complete DNA of certain cell types to prevent the formation of specific organs during plant development. This technique is presented in Nature Communications. The research team, led by Prof. Holger Puchta, a molecular biologist at KIT and one of the co-developers of CRISPR-Cas for plants, developed CRISPR-Kill which induces multiple cuts in the genome.

Desert Locusts are ravenous eaters. Usually found in semi-arid and arid deserts of East Africa, the Near East and South-West Asia, they can form large swarms and pose a major threat to food security and local livelihoods. But what are Desert Locusts and what makes them such a threat exactly?

Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and Gifu University reported that overexpression of unique cowpea NAC genes enhanced growth and seed yield in Arabidopsis. Their study is published in Plant Science. NAC proteins are one of the biggest groups of plant transcription factors (TFs) that are involved in diverse complex biological processes.

A paper published in Nature presents the resequencing of the sorghum genome, providing insights for the improvement of plant agroecological characteristics. Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. (Moench)) is the world's fifth economically most important cereal and is a staple in the semi-arid tropics of Africa and Asia. Sorghum has gained popularity due to the rise in demand for gluten-free specialty grains rich in health-promoting and food oxidative stabilizing compounds.

The “Highlander” gene was found to regulate self-incompatibility that has the potential to allow plants to self-fertilize, creating opportunities to breed stronger, more resilient crops for sustainable agriculture.The investigation started with the observation of the field poppy, Papaver rhoeas, which has the mechanism to avoid problems in self-fertilization. Poppies can recognize their own pollen and trigger a cell suicide program, providing a precise and clean way to eliminate unwanted pollen grains.

A study on the development of the first biological nitrification inhibition (BNI)-enhanced wheat has been awarded the 2021 Cozzarelli Prize given by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS). The study was a joint research collaboration of Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences, the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, the University of the Basque Country, and Nihon University.

Researchers from Guangdong Academy of Science in China used a new technique called single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) to identify and describe the major cell types in the root-tip of maize as well as the developmental pathways and genes involved in various functions. Their study is published in The Crop Journal. The root system is vital in the growth and yield of maize plants. Finding out its genetic diversity and response to nitrate at the single-cell level will provide insights into root development and nutrient uptake.

More than a hundred thousand online and print articles and more than a million social media posts were analyzed by researchers to determine the volume and tenor of the GMO conversation from 2018 to 2020. The results showed that both social and traditional media may be moving toward a more favorable and less polarized overall conversation on ag-biotech.

Researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have discovered a key gene regulating the biosynthesis of anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins. In a study published in the Journal of Experimental Botany, the researchers showed that MtGSTF7, a TT19-like glutathione S-transferase (GST) gene, was activated by the anthocyanin regulator LAP1 in the accumulation of anthocyanins, but not proanthocyanins, in the model legume plant Medicago truncatula.

FAO join the call of the Secretary-General to end the war, restore peace and protect people's lives. We express our solidarity with all the people suffering in this war, particularly those whose livelihood depends on agriculture. At FAO, we are mobilizing our resources and capacities to assist within the limitations the war imposes, and in line with our mandate.
