Studies have shown that current global crop production must be doubled in order to feed the growing population which is expected to reach over 9 billion by 2050. To check if we are on track towards this goal, Dr. Deepak Ray and colleagues from the University of Minnesota conducted an analysis of production trends of major crops namely maize, rice, wheat, and soybean.

Laccases, as early as 1959, were proposed to catalyze the oxidative polymerization of monolignols. Genetic evidence in support of this hypothesis has been elusive due to functional redundancy of laccase genes. An Arabidopsis double mutant demonstrated the involvement of laccases in lignin biosynthesis. We previously identified a subset of laccase genes to be targets of a microRNA (miRNA) ptr-miR397a in Populus trichocarpa.

Three agri-biotechnology experts have been hailed as the 2013 World Food Prize (WFP) Laureates. One of them is Dr. Marc Van Montagu, Founder and Chairman of the Institute of Plant Biotechnology Outreach (IPBO) based in Ghent, Belgium. He used to work on crown gall disease and was one of the discoverers of the plant tumor-inducing soil microbe (Agrobacterium tumefaciens) which carries a circular molecule of DNA labelled as "Ti plasmid".
