To help reduce huge losses in the potato industry, biochemist Dylan Kosma from the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology & Natural Resources at the University of Nevada, Reno, is using a biochemistry approach to identify genetic characteristics of the wound healing process in potatoes.Potato tuber wound healing involves suberin, a corky material that makes up a large proportion of "skin" that covers wound sites.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is at the forefront of efforts to restore and maintain a positive relationship between agri-food systems and conservation by promoting sustainable practices around the world.That was the key message of FAO Director-General QU Dongyu in his address to a High-level dialogue at the World Conservation Congress, currently underway in the French city of Marseille.

Bogor Agricultural University researchers used CRISPR-Cas9 to develop semi-dwarf rice plants.Plant height posture is an important factor in rice production. When the rice plant has elevated height, it is prone to lodging, which can affect yield. The researchers targeted editing the GA20Ox2 gene by introducing CRISPR-Cas9 GA20Ox2 construct into Indonesian rice cultivar IPB3S to develop the semi-dwarf rice mutants.

Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed a model that treats photosynthesis as a dynamic process rather than an activity that either is or is not happening, allowing the group to examine the impacts of light fluctuations that crop leaves experience due to intermittent clouds, overlying leaves, and the sun's daily passage across the sky.

Researchers at Jilin Academy of Agricultural Sciences and partners successfully developed drought tolerant soybean with the help of a gene from the fungus Aspergillus glaucus. The results are published in Transgenic Research.Salt stress is a major concern in soybean production because it impacts yield and quality, leading to significant losses.

The United Kingdom Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has granted permission to Rothamsted Research to run a series of field trials of genome-edited wheat. The wheat in the field trial has been edited to reduce the levels of naturally occurring amino acid, asparagine, which is converted to the carcinogenic processing contaminant, acrylamide, when bread is baked or toasted.

ISAAA and Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) are co-organizing the webinar on SOLVE Info-sufficiency on Genome-edited Crops on September 8, 2021 at 10 AM (GMT+8) via Zoom. Dr. Carl Ramage, Managing Director of Rautaki Solutions, will provide the international perspective on genome editing technology. The Philippine perspective will be tackled by Dr. Saturnina Halos, President of the Biotechnology Coalition of the Philippines.

The announcement by the Biden Administration to reengage the Paris climate process and lower US greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 50% by the end of this decade is an essential development in the global effort to avoid the worst impacts of climate change (1). However, promises to reduce US GHG emissions are not new and have thus far delivered little real and sustainable emissions reductions (2).

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has appealed for humanitarian assistance to be scaled up as Afghanistan continues to be hit hard by an ever-worsening drought that threatens the livelihoods of more than 7 million people who rely on agriculture or livestock.Many of these people are already among the 14 million people - one in three Afghans - who are acutely food insecure and need urgent humanitarian assistance.

The scientists from the Imperial College of London recently published their paper where they described how they were able to investigate the plant's reactions to an invading pathogen which provided them evidence about how a plant's immune sensors work. Immune sensors are found in plant cells and detect the presence of specific proteins called effectors, which infectious microbes use to facilitate infection.
