A group of experts from Pennsylvania State University and partners developed a technique that enhances the lifespan and efficiency of CRISPR gene-editing tools after delivery into stem cells. Bioactive Materials published their findings. Stem cells are used by researchers to investigate the impact of disease on various tissue types due to their pluripotency or the ability to produce cells of any time. However, the delivery of gene-editing tools into stem cells can be inefficient, time-consuming, or expensive

The National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) of the UK has welcomed the approval by both Houses of Parliament of a Statutory Instrument that will facilitate easier execution of field testing of plants developed through new genetic technologies such as gene editing. According to NIAB chief executive, Prof. Mario Caccamo, gene editing offers a potentially transformative tool in plant research that allows similar changes done through conventional breeding, but in a much more precise and efficient manner.

Researchers from the Agricultural Biotechnology Research Institute of Iran and partners used gene silencing techniques to develop genetically modified potato plants resistant to potato virus y (PVY), the most harmful viral disease. The results are published in Transgenic Research. Small interfering RNAs developed from double-stranded RNAs can turn on the immune system in GM plants through the detection of virus transcripts to degrade

The Australian Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) invites comments from the public to assess an application from Nuseed Pty. Ltd. to conduct a field trial of canola and Indian mustard genetically modified (GM) for altered oil content and herbicide tolerance. The field trial is proposed to take place at up to 20 sites with a total area of 150 hectares per year over five years. Sites would be in New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. The GM canola and Indian mustard in this field trial would not be used for human food or animal feed.

The University of Washington and partners conducted a study with farmers using regenerative farming practices to analyze their impact on the nutritional content of food. The results are published in PeerJ. Regenerative farming practices include no-till, use of cover crops, and diverse rotations to conserve biodiversity. To document evidence on the impact of regenerative farming to food, ten farms in the US grew one acre of a test crop for five years, which was compared with the same crop planted on a nearby farm using conventional agriculture.

RUC Davis graduate student, Kevin Yates, together with his professors, developed a GM lettuce that produces a fusion protein combining PTH with part of a human antibody protein. The fusion protein is engineered to be unchanging in the bloodstream. Being able to plant and extract the drug will be beneficial to astronauts in long spaceflights to save weight and get a fresh source of drugs. Conventional medicines usually have a short shelf life and thus astronauts would need ways to replenish their supplies during long spaceflights.

With global prices of food and fertilizers already reaching worrying highs, the continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine raise serious concerns for food security, both in the short and long term. CGIAR Senior Research Fellows Joseph Glauber and David Laborde from IFPRI are curating a special series of posts providing analysis on the implications of rising food and fertilizer prices

A  recent Twitter conversation between the UN’s David Beasley and Tesla’s Elon Musk has shown that hunger is deceptively complex. There is a crucial difference between acute hunger, caused by shocks like war or natural disasters, and chronic hunger, which occurs when agricultural production (and distribution) fails to keep pace with threats such as soil degradation, erratic rainfall, or heatwaves, or when poverty renders food unaffordable.

Below our feet lies a hidden treasure. It may be hundreds of metres below. Or it may be so close to the ground that it bubbles up to the surface. This unseen treasure is groundwater: namely, the vast reservoirs of fresh water under the ground. It sustains ecosystems and provides food, drink and livelihoods for billions. As climate patterns change with global heating, this reliable water source is becoming ever more important for food security and livelihoods.

Amundson’s letter (1) in response to our recent article (2) suggests that there are substantial challenges to the technologies that we envisioned being promising and/or needed to make the agricultural sector net negative. Aside from the difficulty in implementation, he makes no technical criticism of the findings.
