Beyond Meat's plant-based burger is all the rage in Canada these days. Designed to mimic the taste of actual meat, it draws not only vegetarians but also meat lovers with its promise of being a healthier alternative to red meat. Despite its popularity, health experts are still uncertain about it since there is no hard evidence at the moment to prove that the plant-based meat is a better option over beef, as promoted by the company.

According to their report in BMC Biotechnology, VARiant-aware detection and SCoring of Off-Targets (VARSCOT) can find 40 to 70% more experimentally verified off-targets compared to other popular software tools. VARSCOT uses a supplied file in variant call format (VCF) to produce a variant genome which is searched alongside the reference genome to identify variant off-targets.

Agriculture is increasingly part of national processes to develop National Adaptation Plans and the climate-smart approach is embedded in this medium to long-term planning process. In Malawi, climate change adaptation was mainstreamed in the new National Agriculture Policy and in the National Agriculture Investment Plan.

Sorghum, one of the world's top five cereal crops is an important food and nutrition source as climate changes. Sorghum is one of the single most efficient crops in water use and solar energy conversion. A team of scientists from Clemson University, HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute, and the University of Florida has created a new reference genome for sweet sorghum to compare it to the reference genome for grain sorghum to understand the different varieties' different strengths.

Rice experts from the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO) in Japan and partners found a rice gene that confers broad-spectrum resistance to β-triketone herbicides. Benzobicyclon (BBC), a β-triketone herbicide, is useful in many rice paddies, however, some rice varieties are susceptible to BBC. Discovery of the genetic cause of this susceptibility will help breeders develop BBC-resistant crops.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) granted approval to NexGen Plants of Australia to conduct field trials of their gene-edited virus resistant tomato lines. The tomato lines Solanum lycopersicum NP-TV101-1, NP-TV101-2, NP-TV101-3,NP-TV201-1, NP-TV201-2, NP-TV201-3 were developed at the University of Queensland. The USDA has determined that the six tomato lines do not fall under the federal regulations for genetically engineered plants.

For 10 years now, Dimitra Clubs in sub-Saharan Africa have been empowering rural people to champion and galvanize development within their own communities.  With 3400 clubs and 102 000 members, the Dimitra Clubs are having a positive impact on an estimated 2 million rural people. Dimitra Clubs are voluntary, informal groups for women, men and youth who discuss common problems and determine ways to address them by acting together and using local resources.

Scientists from Argentina have developed a transgenic cotton resistant to the cotton boll weevilthrough gene silencing, minimizing the damage caused by the pest and allowing cotton plants to thrive. Cotton boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis) has plagued Argentina's cotton industry for years, causing significant losses during cotton production. This challenge drove the researchers from the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA), to develop transgenic cotton resistant to the pest.

The South Asia Biotechnology Centre (SABC), New Delhi has submitted an appeal to India's Union Minister of Finance Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman to exempt Goods and Services Tax (GST) on pheromone traps and lures, safety kits (mask and glove), botanicals, biologicals, and agriculture pesticides to effectively manage fall armyworm (FAW) – an invasive crop-guzzling pest that has robbed smallholder maize, sorghum, and millets farmers in the last two seasons, and a big threat to agriculture and livelihood of farmers in India.

Scientists from the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology, with the help of Mars Wrigley Confectionery, have created the newest weapon in the battle to save the world's favorite treat -- chocolate. Cacao crop, the source of this delicacy is under significant threat as pressures mount from ever-increasing consumption, a changing climate, and devastating fungal infections.
