Cuba published a decree law that creates a commission to regulate the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología y Medio Ambiente (CITMA) will chair the new Commission to ensure that there is a consistent and comprehensive decision-making process in regulating GMOs while at the same time taking into consideration the interests of the state as this will apply to all activities in the Cuban agriculture sector.

At a recent meeting, FAO Director-General QU Dongyu declared that he was “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”  To all those working at FAO, invoking the phrase summed up the new boss they have come to know over the past twelve months. Everyone recalls the arrival of the newly-elected Director-General from China, but in August 2019, no one really knew what to expect.

Despite rapidly growing interest in deep-sea mineral exploitation, environmental research and management have focused on impacts to seafloor environments, paying little attention to pelagic ecosystems. Nonetheless, research indicates that seafloor mining will generate sediment plumes and noise at the seabed and in the water column that may have extensive ecological effects in deep midwaters (1), which can extend from an approximate depth of 200 meters to 5 kilometers

This call for proposals is to select a recipient or consortium of recipients to receive a four-year IFAD grant financing to implement the project: Rural youth employment opportunities: Support to integrated agribusiness hubs initiative, for a total amount of up to US$3.5 million. The recipient can be an inter-governmental and governmental organizations, TVET and business development institutions, a civil society organization (including NGOs), an academic/research institution or a private sector entity. In the case of a consortium, an organization can join more than one consortium but can be leading only in one of them.

Three improved sorghum varieties with a yield potential of approximately 4 tons per hectare and tolerant to grey leaf spot, rust and other common diseases were released in Malawi early this year. These new varieties replace two varieties released in 1993, and have since been the only improved sorghum varieties available in Malawi. “As farmers diversify their production systems to meet their livelihood needs, including food and household income, agricultural research remains pivotal for development of technologies that secure productivity,” Okori said.

The FAO Director-General QU Dongyu and the Executive Director of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Yannick Glemarec discussed today ways to expand FAO’s and GCF’s collaboration. Three FAO project proposals focused on bolstering rural green growth, forest resilience, promotion of zero-deforestation cocoa production – amongst its many benefits – in Armenia, Colombia and Ivory Coast, respectively, are being assessed for GCF funding, leading up to GCF’s next Board meeting in August.

Researchers from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals and Texas Tech University reviewed the latest approaches used to minimize off-target effects in genome editing such as biased or unbiased off-target detection, cytosine or adenine base editors, prime editing, dCas9, Cas9 paired nickase, ribonucleoprotein delivery and truncated gRNAs. The review article is published in Cells.

Researchers from Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas-Universitat Politècnica de València in Spain have developed two techniques based on trans-acting small interfering RNAs (syn-tasiRNAs) to moderate the degree of silencing induced by a plant's genes. The findings are released in Nucleic Acids Research.

Cassava goes by many names and is one of the world's most important root crops. Starch from this root crop is used to make the chewy pearls in boba tea, the blobs in tapioca pudding, and it is found in a wide variety of gluten-free products. Jessica Lyons, the principal investigator of the cassava genome editing project at Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI) says roughly a billion people around the world rely on cassava as a calorie source, including 40 percent of Africans. Cassava, however, comes with a built-in problem: cyanide and the IGI team is working on cyanide-free cassava using CRISPR genome editing technology.

Agricultural Economist Graham Brookes of PG Economics is the latest featured expert in the ISAAA Webinar series. His talk focused on the latest PG Economics' report on the economic and environmental impact of genetically modified (GM) crops globally for the past 23 years. "GM crop technology continues to make an important contribution to reducing the environmental footprint of agriculture and securing global food supplies in a sustainable way.
