 The 4th International Workshop on Regulatory Approaches for Agricultural Applications of Animal Biotechnologies will take place in São Paulo, Brazil, on September 12-16, 2022. Topics to be discussed include animal breeding, animal biotechnologies in the pipeline, biosafety and regulatory approaches, and risk assessment.

Experts from Lund University developed a cheaper way of producing artificial pheromones that can confuse insects and prevent them to find mates. Manufacturing artificial pheromones is complex and expensive. It can cost around US$1,000 to US$3,500 per kilogram, and an additional US$40 to US$400 deployment cost, depending on the type of pest. Thus, decreasing the cost to make pheromones will make this environmentally-friendly pest control accessible to farmers, especially in developing countries.

Researchers, through a Policy Forum article published in Science, are calling for a new approach to regulating genetically engineered (GE) crops. The researchers argue that current approaches for triggering safety testing vary dramatically among countries and generally lack scientific merit, particularly as advances in crop breeding have blurred the lines between conventional breeding and genetic engineering.

Researchers from Target Malaria and partners presented the implications of gene drive applications in a ‘species complex' such as mosquito Anopheles gambiae s.l. in a paper published in Trends in Biotechnology. Gene drives share the same environmental risk assessment considerations as other genetically modified organisms. However, they vary in their potential to spread, increase in frequency, and persist in target populations.

The environmental and economic costs caused by invasive species in the United States are estimated at more than US$120 billion per year. Invasive species quickly spread as they have few or no natural predators. Introduced non-native insects can decimate crops and forests, and invasive rodents are also disruptive, particularly on island ecosystems, where they are the leading cause of plant and animal extinctions. In the U.S., exotic plant pests and diseases threaten food security, quality of life, and the economy.

ISAAA Inc., in partnership with the Outreach Network for Gene Drive Research, launched a policy brief that tackles the importance of science-based and case-by-case risk assessment for gene drives. The policy brief, titled Risk Assessment for Gene Drive Organisms, is the first of a series that aims to present proposed policy options that address issues relating to gene drive technology. The following questions were answered in the first policy brief:

Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is a staple food in Brazil with both nutritional and socioeconomic importance. As an orphan crop, it has not received as much research attention as the commodity crops. Crop losses are strongly related to virus diseases transmitted by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci, one of the most important agricultural pests in the world. The main method of managing whitefly-transmitted viruses has been the application of insecticides to reduce vector populations.

Research led by the Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC) has developed a mathematical model based on temperature-regulated processes that can predict plant response to global warming. The research, published in the journal Science Advances, identified the role of COP1 protein as a growth promoter of Arabidopsis plants in long days and high environmental temperatures and its interaction with other cellular factors.

Researchers from The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) report in a new study that flavonoids produced by sorghum leaves show promising results in combating fall armyworm larvae. When sprayed on the leaves of corn, sorghum flavonoids stunt the growth of fall armyworm and often kill the pest. The research group led by Surinder Chopra, professor of maize genetics at Penn State has studied mutant lines of corn that overproduce the flavonoids and has developed new lines that combine flavonoid overproduction with other desirable traits.

The Brandizzi Laboratory of the Michigan State University (MSU) is sending seeds enriched in amino acids of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana to space to investigate if fortifying seeds on Earth could create a more sustainable path to growing healthier, nutrient-packed plants in space as a source of food for space travelers. The experiment is one of four that is part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Biological and Physical Sciences' Biological Experiment 01 (BioExpt-01) mission through Artemis I that will serve as a pathfinder for biological research beyond low-Earth orbit
