When it comes to the murky-looking water tanks in Kartik Chandran’s laboratory, fume hoods are essential. Not only do the tanks get regular top-ups of sewage sludge and food waste from a nearby cafeteria, but the microbial colonies inside can give off butyric acid—the distilled essence of sour milk and rancid butter. The tanks also emit an occasional whiff of hydrogen sulfide, says Chandran, which reeks of rotten eggs “till the senses are numbed.”

 The opening of the Biotech Outreach Program for the Philippines kicked off with two webinars specifically intended for policymakers and the judicial branch of the Philippine government. The objective was for the participants to learn and share knowledge about the acceptance of biotechnology in the country, specifically genome-edited crops, for the improvement of the agricultural sector through sustainable means derived from new breeding innovations.

The running fresh water of the Amazon River is a welcoming sound to the peoples of the indigenous resguardo (reserve) in Puerto Nariño, southern Colombia. This watercourse is the only access to the banks of rivers, lakes, flood plains and mainland areas that connect the 22 communities where the Tikuna, Cocama and Yagua peoples live.

Cry protein levels are expected to decline over time due to microbial decomposition and leaching. Thus, the researchers tracked how long biologically active Cry proteins last in SmartStax corn residue expressing Cry1A.105, Cry1F, Cry2Ab2, Cry3Bb1, and Cry34/35Ab1, when exposed to four post-harvest practices including chisel plow tillage, flail mowing, cover crop planting, and undisturbed residue.

Dr. Kazuhiro Sato and his colleagues at Okayama University have established an accurate genome assembly of ‘Fielder' wheat, a cultivar that is very amenable to genetic editing through bacterial transformation. The research team used a process called circular consensus sequencing (CCS) to establish the genome sequence of Fielder wheat.

Two studies led by scientists at Cornell University and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) provide cassava breeders with potential best practices to overcome poor or delayed flower production. Cassava has been a difficult crop for plant breeders to improve in part because of delayed and poor production of flowers. The first study aimed to better understand the factors regulating cassava flowering and its low ratio of female to male flowers.

By analyzing how the evolution of learning affects technology adoption of genetically modified (GM) soybean seeds by farmers in the United States, scientists were able to conclude that uncertainty is considerably reduced over time thanks to increased learning efficiency. The scientists examined farmers' adoption decisions in three stages: the early majority (1996-2001), the late majority (2001-2006), and the laggard stages (2006-2009).

Africa's crop production remains low and this is a threat to their food security. In response, a group of researchers presented a review that details their recommendations for Africa to maximize the benefits of biotechnological innovations in terms of agricultural productivity, medical advancement, and environmental and biological benefits.

The transgenic maize called Tela is derived from the Latin word ‘tutela' which means 'protection'. The field trials, which are being conducted at the Institute of Agricultural Research in Nigeria, showed that the Tela maize varieties produce 9 tons per hectare, which is way above the best producing maize variety in the country that yields three tons per hectare.

In 1881 the first significant work on earthworm behavior and ecology was published (1). It was Charles Darwin´s last scientific book and is still a fascinating and rewarding read. In PNAS, Geier et al. (2) use an earthworm taken directly from nature to present a method that allows in situ visualizations of micrometer-scale physical and chemical interactions between the worm and all its symbionts and parasites.
