The desert locust has a notoriously complex genome structure, but scientists hope that by cracking their genetic code they can develop 'intelligent pesticides' that do not harm other organisms.
The Victoria oat blight was devastating for oat-growing regions in the US, but scientists have now uncovered the genetic make-up of the disease and can better understand how it attacks oat crops.
A US court told the FDA that they had failed to analyse the risk of the salmon escaping into the wild sufficiently, where they might cause harm to natural species.
New research has highlighted the potential for gene editing to replicate desirable characteristics in water buffalo, a key livestock in many Asian countries.
The Center for Food Safety (CFS) claimed that the new labelling rules will not only confuse Americans, but will result in a lack of transparency and clarity.
A Cornell study has revealed satisfaction among farmers in Bangladesh who generated higher yields and revenues using four types of genetically engineered aubergines.
The USDA has released final GMO regulations, which the Center for Food Safety has claimed are detrimental to the health of farmers and consumers.
An Agricultural Economist Professor has argued that fears about plant breeding technologies could be resolved through clearer discourse at an authority level.
Prime editing is a ‘search-and-replace’ genome editing technology in molecular biology by which the genome of living organisms may be modified to include desired traits.
Genetically modified food has faced opposition from both consumers and decision-makers alike. Here, Dr. Oliver Peoples, PhD., CEO of Yield10 Bioscience, suggests that, with modern understanding of their benefits, GMO crops could hold the answer to ensuring the food security of the future.
