Researchers from NC State University have developed a set of tools that make it faster and easier to modify large segments of DNA. The new tools are for use in a technique called recombineering. Recombineering is especially important for plant scientists, because many plants have particularly big genomes. A genome is the complete set of genetic material in a given organism. And some plant genomes can make a human genome seem puny.

According to Osman Mewett, General Manager, Australian Seed Federation (ASF), the group welcomes the passage of the amended Gene Technology Regulations through the Senate. Throughout history, farmers have been breeding plants for the best characteristics, like disease resistance and drought tolerance. The lengthy process of observing, selecting and breeding could take years or even decades to complete.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations today published new guidelines aimed at assuring crop diversity and farmers' resilience to plant genetic resource loss. The Voluntary Guidelines for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Farmers Varieties/Landraces are a valuable aid to countries in developing national plans to conserve these critical crop resources. Farmers' varieties and landraces are populations of a cultivated crop that are often genetically diverse with high local adaptation to the growing environment. They are associated with a set of indigenous knowledge regarding farmers' practices of seed selection and field management. The dynamic management of farmers' varieties/landraces, including their exposure to d.

How might artificial intelligence (AI) impact agriculture, the food industry, and the field of bioengineering? Dan Jacobson, a research and development staff member in the Biosciences Division at the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has a few ideas. For the past 5 years, Jacobson and his team have studied plants to understand the genetic variables and patterns that make them adaptable to changing environments and climates. As a computational biologist, Jacobson uses some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers for his work—including the recently decommissioned Cray XK7 Titan and the world’s most powerful and smartest supercomputer for open science, the IBM AC922 Summit supercomputer, both located a.

Five centres of excellence and a network of focus farms will be established in high yield potential grain-growing environments across Australia as part of a major new investment by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC). Announced Nov. 14, the GRDC’s new five-year Hyper Yielding Crops initiative will push the economically attainable yield boundaries in a range of winter grain crops. Starting next year and concluding in 2025, this national investment will build on the success of the GRDC’s Hyper Yielding Cereals Project that has been conducted in Tasmania over the past four years.
