ISAAA partnered with the Philippine Department of Agriculture Biotech Program Office (DA-BPO) to conduct the Level 1C of the track-specific ladderized training program under the Progressive Manpower Enhancement Program (PMEP). The online workshop intended to help Philippine regulators understand how crop and animal biotech products in the Philippines are developed while complying with the prescribed regulatory and biosafety guidelines of the country.

Genetic engineering and gene editing allow scientists to improve the characteristics of living organisms, including poultry. Thus, these tools provide solutions and opportunities in food and agriculture. ISAAA will hold a webinar on Science and Opportunities for Biotech (GE and GEd) Poultry in Food and Agriculture on May 13, 2021, at 12 PM GMT+8 via Zoom.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a highly heritable neurodevelopmental disorder that is thought to emerge very early in development. Cerebral overgrowth, which is clinically referred to as macrocephaly, is frequently observed in children with ASD, and brain imaging studies have reported increases in both gray- and white-matter volume. Children with these early signs of brain enlargement have been shown to be part of an ASD group with high probability of receiving a diagnosis

After an extensive consultative and iterative process over the last two years, the Vision and Strategy for FAO's Work in Nutrition (FAO’s Nutrition Strategy) was endorsed at the 166th Session of the FAO Council last week. The new strategy establishes FAO’s objectives for nutrition going forward and provides a framework to guide FAO’s action over the next five years.

A team of researchers from Weizmann Institute of Science identified the reason for the bitter taste in tomatoes which could be used to enhance its breeding. The team documented a comprehensive profile of 600 lines of local tomato and hybrid species and compared their genomes by correlating the differences in their qualities. They found that alpha-tomatine is the toxic substance that causes bitterness in tomatoes. Alpha-tomatine is converted into non-bitter metabolites as the tomato ripens.

A research team led by environmental toxicologist Jason White at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station is fortifying crops with nutrients in nanosized packages to boost plant's immunity against pathogenic fungi in a more efficient manner than traditional methods. Their success is reported in Plant Disease. Fungal diseases destroy a third of all harvests, posing a big threat to global food security. To combat fungal pathogens, farmers fumigate the soil with chemicals

Researchers at Oklahoma State University led by Liuling Yan have discovered and cloned the TaOGT1 gene in the popular Billings wheat variety. This gene discovery could mean larger yields for wheat producers, the researchers said. The newly-discovered gene, considered a missing link in wheat's genetic puzzle, will enable researchers to fine-tune crop maturity for specific use: cattle grazing, grain-only, or short-season wheat. Without this fourth genetic piece, the other three pieces were not clear.

A study conducted at the University of York has confirmed that genetically modified (GM) switchgrass detoxifies residues of the military explosive RDX, left behind on live-fire training ranges, munitions dumps, and minefields. RDX has been used on munitions since WW2 and its use has now resulted in widespread groundwater pollution. The researchers generated the GM switchgrass by inserting two genes from bacteria able to break down RDX.

"Move over CRISPR, the retrons are coming!" Researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School (HMS) have created a new gene editing tool called Retron Library Recombineering (RLR) that enables millions of genetic experiments to be performed simultaneously.

Millions of farmers and their families have benefitted in the last three decades of ISAAA's existence, through our knowledge sharing, capacity building initiatives, and support services. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, ISAAA stood at the forefront of science by continuous sharing of knowledge globally on biotech crop adoption, gene editing, animal biotech, science communication, among others.
