Researchers from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, US, successfully designed a new packaging material that is biodegradable, sustainable, and kills harmful microbes. Their study is published in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces journal. The packaging material was developed through electrospinning of zein from corn, together with antimicrobial compounds, cellulose, and acetic acid. Thus, the material is considered biodegradable and can potentially help cut down the amount of plastic waste.

A paper published in GM Crops & Food assessed how GM seed production and organic farming have coexisted in Chile in the current unregulated climate. The paper also provides insights into the development of future evidence-based policies. In Chile, several requirements need to be met regarding Law 20.089 in order to be certified as an organic product. Under Chilean organic certification standards, organic production must be isolated from the production of any non-organic (GMOs, conventional) products.

Researchers from KeyGene and Wageningen University & Research (WUR), together with colleagues from Japanese breeding company Takii and New Zealand's Plant & Food Research and Lincoln University have discovered a gene that makes it possible to produce seeds from crops that are genetically identical to the mother plant and that do not need pollination. The gene found was named PAR, from parthenogenesis, the process where egg cells grow into plant embryos without fertilization.

An international team of scientists from China and the United States assembled 15 pseudochromosomes of the genome of Feizixiao, a popular lychee cultivar, and revealed that the fruit was likely independently domesticated more than once in two different places in China. The study primarily unfolded the origin and domestication history of lychee by using Feizixiao as a reference genome and comparing its DNA with other wild and farmed varieties. Specifically, it provided three main important information about the fruit: wild lychees originated in Yunnan province, that there were two separate domestications that occurred in Yunnan and Hainan Island, and that there was a genetic deletion that may have caused different varieties to fruit and flower at different times.

An interdisciplinary research team from the University of Göttingen has developed a new methodological approach to complete genetic data and fill in the gaps in sequencing. Genetic information is indispensable for modern plant breeding. In previous years, DNA sequencing has become much cheaper, but collecting full genetic information still accounts for a large part of the costs in animal and plant breeding.

The USDA FAS Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) released 2021 updates on the status of agricultural biotechnology in Bangladesh. The Government has shown willingness to adopt and implement a modern agriculture policy framework and guidelines, which support the safe and proper use of biotechnology and other technologies to address food security issues

A global consortium of scientists led by Earlham Institute and the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom marked a significant milestone by developing cheap and accessible methods for sequencing large collections of bacterial pathogens that low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) can use at a cost of less than US$10 per genome.

The John Innes Centre announced that it has submitted an application for the conduct of the field trial of a high-iron wheat line they developed following the success of their greenhouse trials in 2019 and 2021. The application for a small-scale confined field trial was submitted to the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The trial will be conducted in the Centre's field station in Bawburgh between March and August of each year from 2022 to 2024.

World food prices fell slightly in December as international prices for vegetable oils and sugar fell significantly from lofty levels, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations reported today. The FAO Food Price Index averaged 133.7 points in December, a 0.9 percent decline from November but still up 23.1 percent from December 2020. The index tracks monthly changes in the international prices of commonly-traded food commodities. Only the dairy sub-index posted a monthly rise in December.

Human activity threatens whales. Whale populations face indirect impacts such as ocean noise and pollution, as well as direct impacts from whaling, fishing gear entanglements, and ship collisions. Such collisions are believed to kill about 80 whales on the US West Coast each year. Although precise estimates have not been tabulated, whale deaths likely amount to several thousand annually worldwide.
