Abstract

On 24 March 2017, the German authorities reported the contamination of a 'do-it-yourself' bacterial gene engineering CRISPR kit produced in the USA. The kit was contaminated with pathogenic bacteria (risk group 2), including some bacteria that are multidrug-resistant and extended spectrum...

Abstract

Several alternative options have been used for varietal identification. However most of the traditional methods have inherent uncertainty levels and estimates often have wide confidence intervals. In an attempt to circumvent traditional survey-based measurement errors in varietal identification,...

Results are presented of a study conducted to investigate the feasibility of establishing a safety back-up facility for cryopreserved collections of crops that are vegetatively propagated or have recalcitrant seeds. The study concludes that a major global initiative is urgently needed to accelerate ...

Abstract

In Senegal, as in most tropical countries, genetic improvement has always been the cornerstone of dairy policies. Since the first experiments in 1964, the crossings of low-producing indigenous breeds with high-value exotic breeds has always been the main strategy to increase milk production in the...

Abstract

This paper explores US consumers' views relevant to the consumption of organic foods and genetically modified (GM) foods, as well as their trust in the scientists connected with these foods. Overall, 55% of Americans believe organically grown produce is healthier than conventionally grown...

Abstract

In Senegal, demand for milk and other dairy products is steadily rising, along with population growth, urbanization and the changing dietary behaviour of the population. However, national milk production is unable to satisfy rising demand due to the low productivity of local breeds and the limited...

This is the final report of a project, which aims to develop more durable resistance to stem rust (Puccinia graminis) through the combination of diverse sources of adult plant resistance and seedling resistance genes effective against Ug99 and its derivatives. The specific objectives were to (1)...

Abstract

This study was conducted to characterize and quantify the genetic diversity of native sandalwood (Santalum yasi) in Fiji and Tonga for use in future tree improvement and germplasm conservation programs. This was achieved by surveying planted and wild populations of natural and introduced sandalwood ...
