There was a dramatic worsening of world hunger in 2020, the United Nations said today - much of it likely related to the fallout of COVID-19. While the pandemic's impact has yet to be fully mapped*, a multi-agency report estimates that around a tenth of the global population - up to 811 million people - were undernourished last year.

With sorghum poised to become an important crop grown by Pennsylvania farmers, Penn State researchers, in a new study, tested more than 150 germplasm lines of the plant for resistance to a fungus likely to hamper its production.

A critical step in fertilization of eutherian mammals is the “pickup” of oocytes (eggs) by the oviduct (fallopian tube) from the surface of the ovary. In the ovary, each oocyte matures within a follicle, in which it is surrounded by supportive granulosa cells. As the time of ovulation nears, the granulosa cells close to the oocyte transform into cumulus cells, which begin secreting a hydrated elastic extracellular matrix (1).

The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Austria and partners discovered that microbes from cow rumen could degrade three types of plastics, a breakthrough that could be vital in sustainable plastic degradation and the recycling process. The findings are published in Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology.

Wearable meets COVID-19 detection. With the breakthrough of researchers at Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a button-activated mask can detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in a patient's breath within 90 minutes at levels of accuracy similar to PCR tests. The breakthrough is published in Nature Biotechnology.

The CRISPR 3.0 system focuses on multiplexed gene activation, meaning that it can boost the function of multiple genes simultaneously. The researchers said that this system boosts four to six times the activation capacity of current state-of-the-art CRISPR technology, with high accuracy and efficiency in up to seven genes at once. While CRISPR is more often known for its gene editing capabilities that can knock out genes that are undesirable, activating genes to gain functionality is essential to creating better plants and crops for the future.

A new peer-reviewed report from the European Union confirms that the herbicide glyphosate is safe and poses minimal risk to human health and the environment.

The EU's Assessment Group on Glyphosate (AGG) has released an 11,000-page report yet again showing that glyphosate is safe when used as directed.

The use of fear appeal in reporting biotechnology gradually diminishes over time, according to Ms. Kristine Tome, Program Associate at ISAAA. She mentioned this as she presented about Fear and Modern Biotechnology in the Philippines in the Webinar on Researching Fear organized by the Philippine Association for Communication and Media Research, Inc. (PACMRI) and the Philosophical Association of the Philippines on June 30, 2021, via Zoom and Facebook Live.

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), ISAAA, United States Department of State, and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) completed the second part of the APEC High-Level Policy Dialogue on Agricultural Biotechnology on June 29-30, 2021. The activity was attended by 14 economy members and focused on genome editing and the readiness of economy members for the technology and its products to enter the market.
