Experts from the Colombian Corporation of Agricultural Research and partners identified the genes linked to abiotic stress tolerance in upland rice cultivars (Llanura11 and Porvenir12) adapted to acid soils using CRISPR-Cas9. Their findings are published in Research Square.Five candidate stress tolerance genes were selected to know more about the allelic variation in commercial Colombian tropical japonica upland rice cultivars adapted to drought-prone acid soil environments.

In a press release, the group seeks President Macron's support to a major initiative to reduce EU dependence on synthetic pesticides, during the next presidency of the EU Council of Ministers beginning January 1, 2022. The AFBV points out that this goal can only be achieved if there are alternatives with the same efficiency characteristics. Among these, AFBV highlights the value of creating plant varieties that are genetically resistant to diseases or predators and which require fewer pesticides to be protected.

Vietnamese scientists were able to bring forward transgenic lines of an elite Vietnamese rice variety that exhibited resistance against bacterial leaf blight (BLB) disease using CRISPR-Cas9. Their work supports the potential diversity of Transcription-Activator-Like Effectors (TALEs) in Vietnamese Xanthomonas oryzae pv. Oryzae (Xoo) population, the causal agent of BLB.

Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences reported a new strategy for production of astaxanthin in maize. Their findings are published in the Plant Biotechnology Journal. Astaxanthin, commonly produced by marine microalgae, is economically important in food and feed due to its strong antioxidant activity and color. The research team selected maize as a platform to produce astaxanthin by enhancing how carotene is produced in maize plants.

An international team of researchers led by the University of New Hampshire (UNH) has sequenced the genome of the shea tree, providing a valuable resource for the strategic development of the species and contributing to its preservation.The tree is known for the popular product shea butter, a multimillion-dollar ingredient used in cosmetics, personal care products, pharmaceuticals, and chocolate. For hundreds of thousands of African families living in the "shea belt" it is also a crucial source of nutrition and income.
