IFAD commemorates its 40th birthday next year. Since approving the Fund's first projects in 1978, IFAD’s members have assembled periodically to review its operations, provide guidance for the future, and replenish the financial resources of the Fund, which it in turn uses to support agricultural and rural development in its developing member countries. The replenishment consultation process lasts about a year and involves four meetings of some 50 government delegates.

The PTEN gene is inactivated in various cancers. PTEN has a pseudogene in the human genome, PTENpg1, which up-regulates PTEN expression by acting as a miRNA sponge. Interestingly, one of the antisense RNAs from the PTENpg1 locus, PTENpg1 asRNA α, is found to epigenetically down-regulate PTEN transcription by recruitment of EZH2 and DNMT3a to the PTEN promoter in trans (1)

The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and BASF signed three agreements, paving the way for wider dissemination and adoption of direct-seeded rice (DSR) tools and technologies. Through this partnership, the two organizations will establish a multi-stakeholder DSR Consortium and further research on the use of non-genetically modified, herbicide-tolerant rice.

JAZ (Jasmonate ZIM-domain) proteins are important repressors in JA signaling pathway. JAZs take part in various developmental processes as well as in resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses in Arabiodopsis. However, in tomato, the studies on these JAZs are rare, especially on their roles in plant growth and development. The research team of Xiaohui Yu from Chongqing University in China isolated and studied a tomato JAZ gene, SlJAZ2.

Cactus plants need not be prickly and can act as precious natural resources, especially in dryland areas where they can make important food-security contributions for people and livestock.

FAO gathered experts on the hardy plant to pool their knowledge in a bid to help farmers and policy makers make more strategic and efficient use of landscapes often dismissed as arid and infertile.

When women are hurt, food insecurity and poverty prevail in many households. Eliminating gender-based violence (GBV) is crucial, not only because it violates human rights but also because it reinforces many contributing factors as an interview with FAO’s Deputy Director-General, Daniel Gustafson outlines on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

African governments need to exert more effort to put in place viable legislation and investments that promote agricultural biotechnologies and address food insecurity. This was one of the recommendations put forward during the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Regional Meeting on Agricultural Biotechnologies in Sustainable Food Systems and Nutrition in Sub-Saharan Africa held from November 22 to 24, 2017 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Researchers from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) have developed and grown modified Cavendish bananas that are resistant to the devastating soil-borne fungus Fusarium wilt tropical race 4 (TR4), also known as Panama disease. Led by Distinguished Professor James Dale from QUT's Centre for Tropical Crops and Biocommodities, the field trial, which ran from 2012 to 2015 was conducted on a commercial banana plantation that was previously affected by TR4. The soil was heavily reinfested with disease for the trial.
