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.

Dr. Nonawin Lucob-Agustin of the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), together with researchers from Nagoya University in Japan has discovered a mutation gene that may help rice plants survive despite adverse conditions such as drought.The team of researchers discovered the wavy root elongation growth 1 (weg1) gene, which may help rice cope with drought especially in rainfed lowlands where water is scarce.

Biotech stakeholders in Nigeria have challenged local experts to forge stronger ties and collaborations in accelerating genome-editing research whose results carry enormous prospects to solve regional problems. In a joint communique, the stakeholders affirmed the benefits of genome editing in transforming health, enhancing the environment, and improving food security and nutrition in Nigeria and the region.

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.

Researchers at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) have identified a set of promising genes in chickpea that could play a key role in the plant's defense against dry root rot (DRR), a devastating fungal disease.Led by Dr. Mamta Sharma, the team has now explained the mechanism of DRR at the molecular level. They found the involvement of endochitinase and PR-3-type chitinase (CHI III) genes in delaying the progression of DRR

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) announced the launch of its initiative titled Global Action on Green Development of Special Agricultural Products: One Country One Priority Product (OCOP). The initiative targets the development of green and sustainable value chains for special agricultural products, support small and family farmers who will benefit immensely from the global market, which will facilitate the transformation of agri-food systems and attain the Sustainable Development Goals.

A team of researchers from China investigated the aphid-parasitoid interactions over an eight-year period to study the potential impacts of genetically modified crops on non-target arthropods in terms of food web structure and ecosystem functions. Results showed that the GM crops did not affect the agro-ecosystem of the areas of study. The researchers chose to focus on the aphid-parasitoid interactions and compare the infestation levels of the Aphis gossypii, its associated parasitoid community, and the overall parasitism rate between Bt cotton with Cry1Ac + CpTI and its non-transgenic counterpart.

Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed COVID-19 vaccine candidates that can take the heat. These fridge-free vaccines are made from a plant virus called cowpea mosaic virus and the other is from a bacterial virus or bacteriophage.The two vaccines were made using similar recipes. The researchers used cowpea plants and Escherichia coli bacteria to grow millions of copies of the plant virus and bacteriophage, respectively, in the form of ball-shaped nanoparticles.

Bioengineers at Stanford University have developed an efficient multi-purpose, mini CRISPR genome editing system, which works like a "molecular Swiss Army knife". This breakthrough is published in Molecular Cell. This new CRISPR system is described to be versatile and allows robust genome editing and base editing. The engineered CasMINI is compact and less than half the size of the commonly used CRISPR-associated (Cas) proteins, Cas9 and Cas12a.
