Argentina: First PVY resistant potato will go on sale next year
After 20 years of biotechnological research, the first GM potato that is resistant to the PVY virus will go on sale next year in Argentina
La papa transgénica está cada vez más cerca del plato
El desarrollo de la papa transgénica resistente al virus PVY, aprobada por la Comisión Asesora de Biotecnología Agropecuaria (Conabia) en 2015, finalmente quedó registrada por el Ministerio de Agroindustria de Argentina para su comercialización.
Potato Processing company J.R. Simplot acquires license for CRISPR-CAS9 gene editing technology
J.R. Simplot has acquired a license for CRISPR-Cas9 and related gene editing tools. This provides Simplot with another avenue to add desirable traits to fruits and vegetables, including potatoes.
ARS scientists streamline process to introduce multiple genes - as is required to make potatoes resistant to late blight
Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists in Albany, California, have found a way to streamline the process that scientists use to insert multiple genes into a crop plant. Simplot is planning to use it to introduce multiple genes into potatoes to make them resistant to late blight
Potato Farmers in Uganda are waiting for new GM 'Victoria'
Victoria - a popular local potato variety in Uganda - is extremely susceptible to potato Late Blight disease, but a resistant GM version of this variety has been developed. With testing almost complete, it is up to the government biosafety regulatory authorities in Uganda.
