Abstract

Novel foods derived from genome-editing techniques call for an updated risk analysis of the use of plant produced by genome editing, especially in China. As a developing country with the largest population and limited arable land, China has invested intensively in genetically modified (GM) crops to ...

Abstract

Apple production in temperate climate with often wet springs needs a relevant input of fungicides to control apple scab and powdery mildew. Additionally if weather conditions are particularly warm and wet around flowering time fire blight, caused by Erwinia amylovora may cause severe damage to the...

Abstract

This contribution addresses the question of whether there is place for GMOs in food sovereignty. With the stated goals of ending hunger, improving nutrition, reducing chemical use, and sustaining farmers and consumers on a global scale, GMOs seem a likely candidate to be adopted by those...

Abstract

This paper acknowledges the legitimate concerns over genetically modified organisms, but argues that there is a role for these innovations, as they are needed. Genetically engineered (GE) crops should not be categorically dismissed, but belong in a "tool chest" of agricultural innovations, and may...

Abstract

Fishes in genus Sardinella are small pelagic species, which plays an important role in marine ecosystem as the first consumer. Those species are also commercially important, whose total catch reaches 278,600 tons in 2011 in Indonesia, but their identification has been difficult for their...

Abstract

Heavy metal (HM) contamination on agricultural land not only reduces crop yield but also causes human health concerns. As a plant gasotransmitter, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) can trigger various defense responses and help reduce accumulation of HMs in plants; however, little is known about the...

Abstract

GM crops are the most studied crops in history. Approximately 5% of the safety studies on them show adverse effects that are a cause for concern and tend to be featured in media reports. Although these reports are based on just a handful of GM events, they are used to cast doubt on all GM crops....

Abstract

MYB comprises a large family of transcription factors that play significant roles in plant development and stress response in plants. However, knowledge concerning the functions of MYBs and the target genes remains poorly understood. Here, we report the identification and functional...

Abstract

Recent studies have highlighted that the accidental acquisition of DNA from other species by invertebrate genomes is much more common than originally thought. The transferred DNAs are of bacterial or eukaryote origin and in both cases the receiver species may end up utilising the transferred genes...

Abstract

Nanotechnology has the potential to make a beneficial impact on several agricultural, forestry, and environmental challenges, such as urbanization, energy constraints, and sustainable use of resources. However, new environmental and human health hazards may emerge from nano-enhanced applications....
