pb4Da2 is a new Bacillus thuringiensis insecticidal protein that confers in planta resistance against the western corn rootworm (WCR). After a thorough food and feed safety assessment, scientists concluded that the protein does not pose any greater safety risk to humans nor animals than non-genetically modified maize varieties. The protein was assessed following the guidance from FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius commission in 2009

Jaroslav Doležel, Czech plant geneticist and founder of an emerging branch of genomics known as chromosome genomics, stated that new breeding techniques, particularly genome editing tools that allow the precise change of the DNA structure, is key in ensuring that there is enough food for the growing global population. Doležel, the Scientific Director of the Center of the Region Haná for Biotechnological and Agricultural Research, gave his statement during the conference on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Gregor Mendel held in Mendel University in Brno

Scientists at Yale University have found that the common weed Portulaca oleracea, commonly known as purslane, holds the key to creating drought resistant crops. According to the Yale study published in Science Advances, purslane integrates two metabolic pathways that enable the weed to resist drought while remaining highly productive. Purslane is unique because it possesses both C4 and CAM functions. Scientists have previously believed that C4 and CAM operated independently in the leaves of purslane.

A new economic model in research conducted by Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, and international partners in Lancet Health reveals that while plant-based 'beef' alternatives help reduce carbon dioxide emissions, their growth and popularity are threatening more than 1.5 million jobs in the U.S. According to the paper published in The Lancet, the U.S. could reduce its agricultural carbon footprint by 2.5% to 13.5% by using meat protein alternatives, mostly through the reduction of the number of cows needed for for beef production by two to 12 million.

Global non-governmental organization WorldFish sees opportunities for investors to take on the low-value species market across Africa. WorldFish is present in Egypt, Zambia and Malawi and recently also entered the Nigerian market by transferring 50,000 Genetically Improved Tilapia Fish (GITF) fingerlings to the country earlier this spring.

By exploring the genetic population of almost 1,000 wild and domesticated species of rye, German scientists were able to identify recombining regions of the crop, which enabled them to explain why cultivated rye is less resistant to stresses brought by climate change than its wild species. Their study investigated how the genetic material within a plant mixes along a chromosome during cell division in the recombining regions.

Scientists from the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (UKCEH) investigated the impact of a 1,000-hectare commercial farm in Buckinghamshire on biodiversity. The results, published in Journal of Applied Ecology, showed that agri-environment schemes are beneficial to the bird and butterfly populations.The study started in 2005 and involved creating several wildlife habitats, which include seed-bearing plants for birds, insects, and small mammals.

Rising global temperatures affect pollinator populations and food production is becoming increasingly difficult for farmers. A new study at the University of Maryland addresses this issue, giving insights into how flowering plants develop fruits and seeds. In the study led by Zhongchi Liu, the team aimed to discover how fertilization — or pollination — triggers the fruit development process. The team suspected that an internal communication system signals the plant to develop fruit, but the researchers were unsure how that system was being activated by fertilization or pollination.

Researchers led by a team at Duke Health in Duke University used CRISPR technology to successfully prevent and treat COVID infections in proof-of-concept experiments conducted in mice. The experiments modified a currently available lipid nanoparticle to deliver a specific CRISPR-Cas13 mRNA that generates an inhospitable environment in the lungs for SARS-CoV-2 infection. Duke University professor Qianben Wang and colleagues focused on an enzyme that breaks down protein

Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Peking University reported that gene editing of an APETALA2/ethylene responsive factor (AP2/ERF) transcription factor, DUO1, could lead to better wheat grain yield. Their findings are featured in Nature Plants. Wheat is one of the most important food crops worldwide. To help improve food production, it is vital to pinpoint new locations in the wheat genome that can help improve its yield. Thus, the researchers analyzed the key genes involved in spikelet number.
