Crop Biotech Update

The 2016 Global Food Policy Report, the flagship publication of the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has been released on March 31, 2016. The report provides an in-depth look at major food policy developments and events in the past year, and examines key challenges and opportunities for the coming year.
The report points out that today's global food system has major weaknesses: nearly 800 million people are left hungry, one-third of the human race is malnourished, over half of some crops never make it to the table, and the planet is ravaged from environmentally unfriendly agricultural practices. It also states that as the global population is expected to soar exponentially in the coming years, various ways must be examined to feed more people efficiently and sustainably, while combatting climate change.
"The Sustainable Development Goals task us all with the challenge of eradicating hunger and undernutrition in 15 years or less," said IFPRI Director General Shenggen Fan. "We must promote and support a new global food system that is efficient, inclusive, climate-smart, sustainable, nutrition- and health-driven, and business-friendly in order to ensure that no one goes to sleep hungry."
The 2016 report takes a look at the latest research on opportunities and challenges the world will face in achieving multiple SDGs. The report includes chapters on climate change and smallholder farmers, sustainable diets, food loss and waste, and water management. For more details, read the news release at the IFPRI website, where a download link to the report is available.
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have discovered a natural process that they describe as reverse photosynthesis. They have discovered that monooxygenases, natural enzymes also used in industrial biofuel production, multiply their effectiveness when exposed to sunlight. The process is called reverse photosynthesis because the enzymes use atmospheric oxygen and the Sun's rays to break down and transform carbon bonds, in plants among other things, instead of building plants and producing oxygen that is typically understood with photosynthesis.
"This is a game changer, one that could transform the industrial production of fuels and chemicals, thus serving to reduce pollution significantly," says University of Copenhagen Professor Claus Felby, who leads the research. David Cannella, a fellow researcher and discoverer, explains that the discovery means that by using the sun, biofuels and biochemicals for things like plastics can be produced faster, at lower temperatures and with enhanced energy-efficiency. He added that some of the reactions, which usually take 24 hours, can be achieved in just 10 minutes by using the sun.

The African Stakeholders Study tour report The Present & Future of Cotton Farming In India, captures the experiences and lessons learned from a week-long seeing-is-believing study tour by a delegation of six East and Southern African cotton growing countries to Bt cotton hybrid fields in India from September 27- October 2, 2015. The study tour was aimed at allowing the delegates to visit and witness the performance of Bt cotton hybrids in farmers' fields and study the cotton value chain in India. Participants included policy makers, regulators, chief executives of cotton boards, researchers, journalists, consumer representatives and private sector players who interacted with officials from both public and private sector institutions within the cotton sub-sector value chain and witnessed first-hand the exemplary performance of Bt cotton hybrids in farmers' fields. They learned about the benefits and challenges those charged with the responsibility of deploying the technology in India have encountered.
The strong collaboration and stewardship measures put in place, managed by the Government of India, Universities and private sector players were impressive. Among the take-home messages were the need for a strong extension service to support Bt cotton farmers, the concerted efforts of different players to sustain adoption and the wide range of varietal choices of Bt cotton hybrids that Indian farmers have at their disposal due to an elaborate breeding program. It is our hope that the Indian model of holistic technology application in the cotton sector that has made India number one in world cotton production will inform decision makers in Africa for the benefit of millions of farmers who depend on the crop for their livelihood.
The visit was organized by the ISAAA AfriCenter and the South Asia Biotechnology Center (SABC-India) in partnership with COMESA/ACTESA, the Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology (OFAB-Kenya) and the Program for Biosafety Systems (PBS). Partial support was also received from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Mahyco Seeds Company.

A team of researchers from Purdue University led by Richard Kuhn, director of the Purdue Institute for Inflammation, Immunology and Infectious Diseases (PI4D), with Michael Rossmann, Purdue's Hanley Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences has determined the structure of the Zika virus, which reveals insights critical to the development of effective antiviral treatments and vaccines. The research team identified regions within the Zika virus structure where it differs from other flaviviruses.
They found that all of the known flavivirus structures differ in the amino acids that surround a glycosylation site in the virus shell. The shell is made up of 180 copies of two different proteins. The glycosylation site where Zika virus differs from other flaviviruses protrudes from the surface of the virus. In many other viruses, it has been shown that as the virus projects a glycosylation site outward, an attachment receptor molecule on the surface of a human cell recognizes the sugars and binds to them. The virus is like a menacing stranger luring an unsuspecting victim with the offer of sweet candy. The human cell gladly reaches out for the treat and then is caught by the virus, which, once attached, may initiate infection of that cell.
The team studied a Zika virus strain isolated from a patient infected during the French Polynesia epidemic and determined the structure to 3.8Å. At this near-atomic resolution, key features of the virus structure can be seen and groups of atoms that form specific chemical entities, such as those that represent one of 20 naturally occurring amino acids, can be recognized, according to Rossmann.
