Vietnamese scientists were able to bring forward transgenic lines of an elite Vietnamese rice variety that exhibited resistance against bacterial leaf blight (BLB) disease using CRISPR-Cas9. Their work supports the potential diversity of Transcription-Activator-Like Effectors (TALEs) in Vietnamese Xanthomonas oryzae pv. Oryzae (Xoo) population, the causal agent of BLB.

Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences reported a new strategy for production of astaxanthin in maize. Their findings are published in the Plant Biotechnology Journal. Astaxanthin, commonly produced by marine microalgae, is economically important in food and feed due to its strong antioxidant activity and color. The research team selected maize as a platform to produce astaxanthin by enhancing how carotene is produced in maize plants.

An international team of researchers led by the University of New Hampshire (UNH) has sequenced the genome of the shea tree, providing a valuable resource for the strategic development of the species and contributing to its preservation.The tree is known for the popular product shea butter, a multimillion-dollar ingredient used in cosmetics, personal care products, pharmaceuticals, and chocolate. For hundreds of thousands of African families living in the "shea belt" it is also a crucial source of nutrition and income.

The ability to selectively degrade cellular components ranging from proteins to large complexes and organelles is essential for cellular quality control. Failure leads to accumulation of unwanted material that gives rise to neurodegeneration, cancer, and infectious diseases. Two main degradative pathways have evolved: the ubiquitin–proteasome system (UPS) and autophagy.

The success and adoption of novel food products depend on consumer acceptance. A recent study was conducted to identify the role of the fear of novel foods on consumer acceptance and revealed that consumers were more open to accepting gene-edited foods.The study involved 835 geographically dispersed Chinese consumers and focused on the consumer acceptance evaluation of rice and pork products that were specifically bio-engineered to address cadmium contamination and African swine fever, respectively.
