Common viruses are too small to be seen by a standard microscope and don't have enough genes to survive without a host. They reproduce by having the host replicate their genetic material and make proteins necessary to make copies of themselves. Thus, scientists from Virginia Tech were perplexed when they found giant viruses with genes that they don't seem to need. To elucidate further on this mystery, Frank Aylward, Mohammad Moniruzzaman

QU Dongyu, Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, today called on G20 members to address the impacts of COVID-19 on agri-food systems by boosting farmers productivity, scaling up social protection mechanisms and investing in digital innovation, among other measures.

Economist Graham Brookes of P.G. Economics Ltd. continues his online country reports to provide the latest data on the economic and environmental benefits of genetically modified (GM) crops. His latest episode was hosted by Pakistan, with Federal Minister Syed-Fakhar Imam of the Ministry of Food Security and Research in attendance. Brookes first gave his 23-year global report about the economic and environmental impacts of GM crops, stating that the total farm income gain from GM crops from 1996 to 2018 amounts to US$ 225 billion.

The first study was conducted for a comprehensive and systematic evaluation of the entire collection of wheat, ~22,000 accessions conserved in the Indian National Gene Bank. The unprecedented initiative and study was led by Prof. KC Bansal, former Director of  Indian Council of Agricultural Research - National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources (ICAR-NBPGR). The results of the study are published on the cover of Crop Science journal, November-December 2020 issue.

Research conducted at Dartmouth College finds that the biological clock of a popular food crop controls close to three-quarters of its genes. The study, published in the journal eLife, can help researchers identify genes that can help improve growth and stress resilience when a plant is moved to a new region or if a plant encounters changes in climate conditions.

A long-standing puzzle in evolution is why new genes — ones that seem to arise out of nowhere — can quickly take over functions essential for an organism’s survival. A new study in fruit flies may help solve that puzzle. It shows that some new genes quickly become crucial because they regulate a type of DNA called heterochromatin.

The Kenyan Government has lauded the media's contribution in fostering an appreciation of the potential that science, technology, and innovation offered in the attainment of the country's development agenda, specifically, in improving food security and boosting the manufacturing sector. Speaking during this year's OFAB-Kenya Media Awards gala held in Nairobi,

Chemists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have identified the molecular structure of a protein found in SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The protein, called the envelope protein E, forms a cation-selective channel and plays a key role in the virus's ability to replicate itself and stimulate the host cell's inflammation response.

Efforts to curtail the COVID-19 pandemic have sent shockwaves across the globe. The immediate measures to preserve human life and bring the health crisis under control have been wholly necessary, but as restrictions on modern life remain in place for months to come, disruptions to food systems will inevitably become more acute. The number of hungry people, already at 800 million, could double as part of the wider fallout from the pandemic.

Antimicrobial medicines have long been overused and misused. Now, around the world, people, plants and animals are dying from infections that cannot be treated – even with our strongest antimicrobial treatments. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is spreading further and faster every day. If left unaddressed, AMR may force tens of millions more people into extreme poverty, hunger and malnutrition.
