University of Missouri researchers discovered a gene in fruit flies important in studying the origin of language in humans. In 2007, the researchers discovered that a gene in the fruit fly genome is very similar to the human version of Forkhead Bo P (FoxP) gene and in their latest study they found that the gene is a major player in operant learning.

Researchers from Oregon State University and Michigan Technological University have discovered the function of a gene involved in controlling the awakening of trees from winter dormancy. This discovery is vital in the ability of the trees in adjusting to environmental changes caused by climate change. The study is published in the latest edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Aquaporins, involved in the main water transport pathway across plasma membranes in root and leaf tissues, are proposed to have a major role in growth of plants due to their influence on root water uptake and leaf gas exchange. Currently, a team of researchers from Zhejiang University in China has overexpressed the soybean aquaporin GmPIP1;6  to evaluate its function in growth regulation and salt tolerance in soybean.

Scientists from the University of Adelaide in Australia have identified the genes in wheat that control tolerance to boron toxicity, a significant yield-limiting soil condition around the globe. Project leader Dr. Tim Sutton said "About 35% of the world's seven billion people depend on wheat for survival.

Biologists at University of California San Diego have discovered a new genetic pathway in plants made up of four genes from three gene families that control the density of breathing pores, or stomata, in plant leaves in response to elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. Led by Julian Schroeder, the team sought to understand the fundamental mechanisms and genes by which CO2 represses stomatal pore development.

Namibia is on the road towards strengthening its goals of enhanced control of food safety, plant and animal pests and diseases threatening agricultural productivity. This follows the newly launched partnership between the Namibian Standards Institution (NSI) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Speaking before the Maui County Council committee last week, Environmental Protection Agency officials stated that there are no health problems linked with consumption of biotech papaya rainbow.  A proposal to ban the biotech crop has been submitted to the committee and is currently under review. According to EPA biotech special assistant, Chris Wozniak, there is no difference between eating rainbow papaya and a papaya with virus, which commonly happens.
