ISAAA Inc., in partnership with the Philippine Biotechnology for Agriculture and Fisheries of the Department of Agriculture (DA Biotech Program Office) and Asian Farmers Regional Network (ASFARNET), holds a public briefing titled Biotech for Filipino Farmers: A Public Briefing on the Philippine Biotechnology and Biosafety Regulations and Farmers' Perspectives on June 20, 2024, in General Santos City.

ASCA7 targets to equip Asian scientists, regulators, and other stakeholders with the knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of agri-biotech. The program focuses on three key areas: agri-biotech applications, policy environment, and biotech communication. This comprehensive approach empowers participants to contribute towards implementation of science-based regulations that support the commercialization and trade of agri-biotech products.

Researchers from the University of Sydney produced seekRNA, a gene editing tool that has higher accuracy and flexibility compared to CRISPR. The technique has successfully been tested in bacteria and will be investigated if it can be applied to complex eukaryotic cells. CRISPR creates a break in the two strands of DNA and requires other proteins to add the new DNA sequence. Even though CRISPR has multiple applications in different industries, this method can introduce unintentional errors in the DNA.

Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) produced a novel method to store DNA in a new type of polymer. Their creation can fit the entire human genome and may store digital information on DNA. Current methods of DNA storage require freezing temperatures, which are not feasible in other parts of the world. Those methods also consume a large amount of energy, which make them expensive and unscalable.

A decade-long cross-institutional collaboration led by scientists from the John Innes Centre (JIC) and the Agricultural Genomics Institute at Shenzhen, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), has discovered huge genetic potential that is untapped in modern wheat varieties. Dr. Simon Griffiths at JIC and Professor Shifeng Cheng at CAAS studied the historic A.E. Watkins Landrace Collection, which contains a collection of local wheat varieties which are no longer grown anywhere in the world, and compared this with modern wheats.

Pakistan’s Technical Advisory Committee of the Environment Protection Agency released commercialization approvals for two high-yielding sugarcane varieties developed by experts from the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. While sugarcane meets a significant 70% of global sugar demandand holds promise as a key bioethanol source, Pakistan ranks 5th in sugarcane cultivation but only 11th in worldwide production.

Director-General QU Dongyu today welcomed farmers from around the globe to FAO headquarters for the 2024 Annual Meeting of the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO). “You are the game changers of agrifood systems,” he said, noting that precisely those systems need to be urgently transformed to address hunger and other global challenges. Most of the worlds 608 million farms are run by an individual or a family and rely primarily on family labor, operating at a small scale yet producing the vast majority of the world’s food in value terms.

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory used CRISPR to develop a high-oil variety of Camelina sativa. Their research may help achieve a net-zero carbon bioeconomy. Camelina (Camelina sativa) is a close relative of canola and it is being developed to serve as a source of plant oil for the production of biofuel feedstocks. However, a yellow seed phenotype of Camelina is necessary to acquire a high oil content from the plant but it is currently unknown.

A team from the University of California, Berkeley's (UCB) Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI) has produced an increase in gene expression in a food crop by changing its upstream regulatory DNA. Other studies used CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to knock out or decrease gene expression, this new research however, is the first unbiased gene editing approach to increase gene expression and downstream photosynthetic activity.
