European researchers led by Michael Holdsworth from University of Nottingham conducted a study on improving the flood tolerance of barley plants. This was done by adapting their previous study in Arabidpsis thaliana that leads to the discovery of plants' mechanism to sense low oxygen levels during flood conditions. The researchers look at the N-end rule pathway which is responsible for plants' response to low oxygen during flooding.

Researchers from Yale University have systematically assessed the evolution of the activity of a natural gene network and found some surprising insights. The team swapped promoters of a sugar metabolization network between two species of yeast and then analyzed the effects on yeast cells. They found that swapping the promoter GAL80, which mediates a negative feedback loop, substantially altered network activity and the fitness profiles of yeast cells.

Scientists discovered a genetic mechanism that could stop the spread of Septoria leaf blotch (STB), a devastating fungal disease affecting wheat fields in Europe. A key feature of STB is the long symptomless growth of the fungus called Zymoseptoria tritici, which affects the host plant's cells before it switches to the visible disease phase that eventually destroys the plant's leaves.

Sorghum is one of the cash crops planted in United States valued for its grains. Sorghum grains can be a source of food, feed, ethanol, and construction and packaging materials. In addition to this, sorghum is a drought tolerant crop and can be grown under poor soil condition, low fertilizer and in a wide range of temperature and altitudes. These traits make it a good alternative crop for farmers. Researchers from US Department of Agriculture – Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) led a research study on sorghum to further improve its yield and performance.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Vietnam Academy of Agricultural Sciences in cooperation with ISAAA, held a conference on February 3 in Hanoi on the Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops: 2014 (ISAAA Brief 49). Dr. Clive James, author of the report and Founder and Emeritus Chair of ISAAA presented the highlights of the ISAAA Brief 49,
