A paper published in Nature reports that researchers have generated a full-length clone of SARS-CoV-2 genome using artificial chromosomes in brewers' yeast. The researchers say that a major benefit of the yeast system is its speed and stability. Reconstructing and modifying the genomes of disease-causing viruses are essential for studying their method of infection, replication, drugs that might work against them, and potential vaccines.

An international research team has uncovered the answer to a decades-old question - how do plants forget? Like humans, plants have memories too, although they do it differently. For example, many plants sense and remember prolonged cold during winter to ensure that they flower in spring. This "epigenetic memory" occurs by modifying specialized proteins called histones, which are important for packaging and indexing DNA in the cell. One such histone modification called H3K27me3 marks genes that are turned off. In the case of flowering, cold conditions cause H3K27me3 to accumulate at genes that control flowering.

In December 2019, Wuhan City in China became the epicenter of a respiratory disease outbreak with mysterious origins, that spread to many countries immediately. To investigate the matter and control the disease roll out, suspected and infected patients were placed in isolation, contact tracings were conducted, and detailed clinical and epidemiologic data were gathered.

The Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), QU Dongyu, said today that significant gains had been made in the fight against the desert locust upsurge in East Africa and Yemen. He stressed, however, that more needs to be done to prevent a food security crisis, as the ongoing rainy season not only provides livelihoods for farmers and pastoralists but also favourable conditions for locusts to breed.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) released its statement granting Oxitec Ltd. the experimental use permit (EUP) to field test the use of genetically engineered (GE) Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. This approval will allow Oxitec to continue its projects using the Friendly™ mosquito technology that was designed to control mosquito populations and decrease the risk of spreading mosquito-borne diseases.

Researchers at Canada's Western University and Suncor have teamed up to produce serological test kits for COVID-19. PhD candidates Daniel Giguere and Sam Slattery are developing algae as a production factory to make the necessary proteins to identify COVID-19 antibodies in people who were previously infected with the disease.

In 2006, the New York City-based Vilcek Foundation created an annual prize program for foreign-born biomedical scientists who have made major contributions to their fields while living and working in the United States. The founders, themselves immigrants from Czechoslovakia, established the program to raise public awareness of the indispensable role of immigrant scientists in ensuring the United States’ leadership on the world science stage.

Beyond the COVID-19 health emergency, a recession looms, and countries ought to take measures now to soften the longer-term impacts on hunger and food insecurity, a new FAO policy brief says. Forecasts for the global economy vary in details, but all point to a historic downturn. The International Monetary Fund now expects worldwide gross domestic product to shrink by 3.0 percent in 2020, compared to January projections of 3.3 percent growth. The large downturn is also expected to usher in the first outright recession in sub-Saharan Africa - where about a quarter of the population is undernourished - in 25 years.

FAO Director-General QU Dongyu held virtual talks today with Jutta Urpilainen, European Commissioner for International Partnerships. Both parties agreed to step up joint efforts to support the fight against hunger in times of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, thereby accelerating progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
