Using 16S rDNA-polymerase chain reaction–denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (PCR-DGGE), electron microscopy and a conventional plating method, the genetic diversity and phenotype polymorphism of the endophytic bacteria within Azolla microphylla were explored. The first generation of biotechnology crops focused on agronomic input traits that helped farmers; however, their value was not clear to the general consumer who is disconnected to the demands of farming. The agricultural trait segment continues to focus on two product categories, herbicide tolerance and insect resistance, in spite of few entrepreneurial opportunities available. To develop modified trees with reduced lignin content for the paper industry and the bioethanol industry is also an intriguing area of research in agricultural biotechnology. There has been a boom in funding in this sector over the last two years. Protecting IP rights is becoming increasingly more important in public, private, and non-profit sectors, both as a means of fueling innovation and providing incentives for researchers to produce new and improved agricultural technologies. MAS enables plant breeders to identify better traits in plants more rapidly than conventional breeding alone is capable of. Transgenic tomato varieties with enhanced lycopene content and delayed ripening to develop improved nutrition and flavor are being developed. ... (2017-2018). Though, acceptance of such technologies has consequences, there is need for creating biosafety regulatory systems to decrease and eradicate possible potential risks arising from agricultural biotechnology on flora and fauna. Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology is cited by a total of 980 articles during the last 3 years (Preceding 2018). A similar trend is noticed in consumer research. A discussion of the most important concerns raised by developing countries related to IP protection and access will conclude the chapter. Transgenic plants which are currently being developed are tomatoes, rice, canola grapes, tobacco, tea, coffee, and some trees. Producing enough food for our growing global population comes with the added challenge of changing consumption patterns, as well as the need to cope with the dramatic effects of climate change and the increasing scarcity of water and land. News about Agriculture and Farming, including commentary and archival articles published in The New York Times. Nat Biotechnol. While no examples of gene-edited crops are commercially available at present, much research is being undertaken in this field and many new crop varieties will be realized in years to come using this biotechnological approach. The journal publishes high quality articles especially in the science and technology of biocatalysis, bioprocesses, agricultural biotechnology, biomedical biotechnology, and, if appropriate, from other related areas of biotechnology. One can only mention that man intervened in breeding for time immemorial, and that Noah’s Ark (Genesis 6:18–20) was perhaps the first documented “breeding institution,” on which males and females of all living creatures were given the chance to survive, breed, and produce offspring for selection of future generations. Access options Buy single article. Thus the very trends in the funding of Western applied science designed to make the scientist more responsive to human needs seems fated to insure that the scientists cannot be responsive to the needs of developing nations. Based on an structure and characteristics of DNA, scientists have developed solutions to increase agricultural productivity. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V.

However, in view of widespread public resentment against agricultural biotechnology in affluent societies that take the benefits of technological change for granted but view its risks as increasingly inacceptable, there is very low probability that the technology can be framed in a more positive way, unless it is connected to a serious economic threat, such as losing out market share in agriculture and food processing and becoming dependent upon countries that have embraced the technology. The subject of ethics, which is concerned with the question of virtue, was coined and discussed first by Aristotle (384–322 BC) whose starting point was that “everything humans do is aimed at some good, with some good higher than others … the highest human good that people aim at is referred to as happiness or living well.” John Stuart Mill (1806–1873) followed Aristotle, and established in his utilitarian theory the “greatest-happiness principle,” which deals with “doing the greatest good for the most amount of people….” Agricultural and plant biotechnology, and in fact all biotechnologies, are based on his utilitarian and ethical philosophy. Even though this narrative proved to be wrong on almost all accounts from a scientific and empirical research point of view, it shaped public perception had a major impact on regulation of GMOs in Europe and other countries. Agricultural biotechnology has the potential to advance crop productivity production enhancement and improve food security at global level. Nevertheless, some opponents of biotechnology want to deprive other groups of people of food because it is genetically modified. Article Google Scholar Vincelli, Paul. This rice is produced with the aim of benefiting millions of people suffering from vitamin A deficiency, especially those living in developing countries. Original-research-article. But the challenges, goals, and opportunities for agricultural applications of biotechnology provide a very different context for innovation and entrepreneurs. 2018;36:800–2. The Journal Impact 2019-2020 of Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology is 2.140, which is just updated in 2020. Working off-campus? Submit. The sequencing of genomes from several plant species and advances made in plant genetics and other aspects of agricultural sciences have led to technological breakthroughs that will provide the building blocks for what are likely to be major industries, with profound implications for agriculture. Sustaining this plant biotechnology revolution requires long-term commitment to both public and private sector research and development (R&D). These advances can only be achieved through resource-intensive R&D. Brookes, G & Barfoot, P 2014, GM crops: global socio-economic and environmental impacts 1996–2012 (2.06 MB), PG Economics Ltd, Dorchester, United Kingdom. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Since its introduction, crops have been safely used, reducing the use of pesticides. agricultural biotechnology research body, would start field trials of genetically engineered (GE) corn from major seed companies for research purposes. Since the advent of agriculture 10 000 years ago, farmers have used biological technology inadvertently in the refinement of methods of farming and crops through cross breeding, and various hybridization techniques. The only effective way to respond to an emotional argument is to come up with a counter narrative that is equally emotional. 1 Department of Animal Nutrition and Biotechnology, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, P.M.B. This trend did not negate the value of polio and small pox vaccines nor antibiotics in developing countries. With the world turning to agricultural technologies for solutions, the twenty-first century will witness a major development of genetically improved bioenergy crops that help to mitigate climate change and contribute to the cost-effective production of biofuels (Harfouche et al., 2010). This resistance is based on a public narrative that was largely shaped by the European perception of the technology. The big challenges used to be linked to the threat of being conquered economically or militarily by another country that has embraced the new technology. One of the goals of this chapter is to shed light on the freedom-to-operate (FTO) and risk-management issues that are critical to scientists. Agricultural biotechnology represents only one factor among many others, influencing the welfare and health of citizens and farmers in the developing world. As discussed above, it is common when technologies are paid for in developed nations that the technologies are first applied there. Such a portrayal results often in a polarized and highly emotional public discussion on GMOs. With these findings, together with the ISAAA report on the continuous biotech crop adoption all over the world, GM crops continue to hold the promise of improving not just agriculture, but also the lives of 17 million farmers who continue to plant them. Numerous WTP surveys and representative public opinion surveys have been conducted to measure consumer and political preferences on the use of genetic engineering in food and agriculture. Countries with strong innovation systems (technology producers) often favor strong IP protection because it stimulates innovation by granting innovators temporary market exclusivity for their new, non-obvious, and useful inventions. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Although multinational companies are unlikely to design products specifically for developing nations, some of the major products developed will be admirably suited for use in developing economies. From: Natural Remedies for Pest, Disease and Weed Control, 2020, Neal Gutterson PhD, in Biotechnology Entrepreneurship, 2014. Transgenic canola with enhanced vitamin E levels is a subject being studied. Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology Impact Factor 2018-2019 The impact factor (IF) 2018 of Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology is … Agricultural biotechnology has products and process where in the crop improvement happens through rudimentary biotechnology following Mendelian genetics where two plant types of the same species are crossed to produce a better plant type. Innovative biotechnologists are expected to make major contributions as the world emerges from the current period of economic uncertainty (Adams et al., 2009). NEW YORK, March 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Agricultural Biotechnology market worldwide is projected to grow by US$32 Billion, driven by a compounded growth of … Unlike molecular plant breeding, however, recombinant DNA technology results in new traits that cannot be achieved by conventional ways. One of the biggest adversities farmers encounter in crop production is weed control, since there is a sharp reduction in crop yield and quality with poorly controlled weeds. In addition, IP protection in agriculture is crucial in driving economic growth and competitiveness. Food crops engineered to produce edible vaccines against infectious diseases would make vaccination more child-friendly around the world. In this narrative, GMOs are framed as a corporate technology that allows companies to make large profits while endangering the environment and people’s health. A third technology that falls under the umbrella of genetic engineering is RNA interference, or RNAi technology. The delay in itself is not bad, but if issues in agriculture specifically residing in developing countries are not addressed because of the pressures of capitalism, a wonderful humanitarian opportunity will be lost. There are positive trends as well. Briefly, genetic engineering involves the introduction of a novel trait into a crop through the manipulation of its genetic material. The current food system requires a global response to supply issues integrated in information, trade, and technology affected with rising population and more land utilization; thus, there is a need to increase food productivity in a sustainable manner, flexible to handle exigencies with better water and soil management. The present chapter points a relative lesson of the accessible national and international biosafety frameworks in place in India, with the UNEPGEF Framework implemented across 126 countries. Synergy between Biotech and Classical Control Tactics Rid U.S. of Invasive Pest. Conventional and rDNA technology help in improving microbial inoculants to be used to control plant pests, as fertilizer supplements, and to aid in atmospheric nitrogen fixation. The IP protection differences between countries remain a contentious issue. In this special issue, 12 articles (ten review articles and two original articles) were invited among 18 presentations at the AASSA-KAST Regional Workshop. In the developing world there are countries in Latin America and Asia that have embraced the technology without much public debate. Looking back at history, this was always the case when governments argued that it would be unpatriotic to reject a new technology in the face of mounting challenges. Please check your email for instructions on resetting your password. The adoption rate of biotechnology … Any queries (other than missing content) should be directed to the corresponding author for the article. Modern genetics assists in improving the growth, health, vigor, and other qualities of agriculturally important mammals, poultry and fish. Capitalism alone is likely to be slow to generate products that will aid developing counties at an affordable price, but the rate of development could be increased somewhat if there were good patent protection in these countries.6 One hopes that activists can move beyond blocking questionable technologies toward a positive program where technologies which improve the environment and encourage social justice are advocated.

The journal will publish peer-reviewed basic and applied research papers, authoritative reviews, and feature articles. These are plants which contain one or more genes that have been artificially inserted instead of their acquiring them through the natural process of pollination. Name Email Leave a comment. Furthermore, if the history of the agricultural biotechnology industry is any guide, any African seed companies that do manage to be successful are likely to be acquired by these multinational biotechnology firms. Insects which are susceptible for this toxin ingest the transgenic crop cultivar expressing the precursor Bt protein, which binds to the insect gut wall and becomes activated in that alkaline environment. In this chapter, we review the major types of IP in agricultural biotechnology, each having different rights and requirements for their protection, including: Plant breeder's rights; plant variety protection (PVP); plant patents; utility patents; gene patenting; material transfer agreements (MTAs); trademarks; trade secrets; know-how; and geographical designations of origin. Consequently, they either drop out of the market or are bought by one of the larger firms. Barbara Sawicka PHD, ... Parisa Ziarati PHD, in Natural Remedies for Pest, Disease and Weed Control, 2020. The News items cover all food and agricultural sectors (crops, forestry, fisheries/aquaculture, livestock, agro-industry) and a wide range of biotechnologies (e.g. U.S. agencies that regulate the products of agricultural biotechnology discuss regulatory approaches presented during the June 2018 OECD Conference on Genome Editing Applications in Agriculture, focusing on plants developed using genome editing. In this case, the plant is designed to produce an antisense RNA to a particular gene, whose expression is then blocked via gene silencing. A major charge against agricultural biotechnology is that it is producing toys for wealthy nations and profits for large companies.6,35–37 A friend with a large biotechnology company recently lamented that he joined to company to make the 'volkspotato' to feed the world but is engaged in making the 'yuppie potato' optimized for fast food franchises. But today it could also be linked to the threat of climate change and food insecurity in the twenty-first century in view of a growing world population. Cormick and Mercer 2017, Community attitudes to gene technology, Instinct and Reason, Sydney. Current agricultural research is focused on producing genetically engineered plants (transgenic plants). Kapildeo N. Singh, ... Mahesh Kumar, in Biotechnology for Sustainable Agriculture, 2018. The process also avoids the charge that new technologies are experimentally applied to societies that cannot defend themselves. Agronomic traits include improved crop yield and resistance against abiotic and biotic stresses. Should we deprive a patient of a GM drug that can cure him and save his life? This portrayal tends to divide the debate in actors with good motives (those who are concerned about the potential health and environmental risks of GMOs) and actors with bad motives (those who seek to make profits from the commercialization of GM crops). Substantial shifts in the scientific basis for a great deal of biological research have created new and promising opportunities for innovation in agricultural biotechnologies. To test the success of this multipronged attack, scientists with the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences conducted computer simulations and analyzed field data collected in Arizona from 1998 to 2018. India, as a party to the Convention on Biological Diversity and Cartagena Protocol, has acquired the responsibility of strengthening her biosafety structure very sincerely. Figure 1. Not only will humankind benefit from these innovative technologies, but the efforts that spawned them are contributing to the existing body of scientific knowledge and the development of global biotechnology industries (Singh et al., 2009). At this stage, it may no more be possible to counter emotion with reason by pointing at the empirical evidence and the countless public risk assessment studies on GMOs. In order to show that skeptics of advanced agricultural biotech methods try to base their call for strict regulation on ... Carroll D. A call for science-based review of the European court's decision on gene-edited crops. Ethical moralists will agree that having GM food is as good as a GM drug. However, the nature of these developments is raising real concerns about the extent to which agriculture in developing countries will be able to partake in the benefits offered by these advancements (Wright et al., 2007). All these are possible with biotechnology revolution as an integrative production system maintaining ecological diversity [12,15,38,39]. Hooi Ling Foo is a Professor in Industrial Biotechnology at the Faculty of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). Crops developed through biotechnology, specifically, transgenic crops, are being designed to address many of the world's significant agricultural challenges. The situation in North America in general and the United States in particular is different since farmers, consumers, and high school students mostly have made a concrete experience with the technology and this makes it more difficult for advocacy groups to portray themselves as the voices that represent the interests of consumers and producers. Although investments in R&D and agricultural innovations have been fundamental to long-term economic growth worldwide, global resource allocation has been uneven. This can be achieved in part by modern molecular plant breeding techniques such as marker-assisted selection (MAS). The genetic engineering of crops for improved agronomic and nutritional traits has been widely reviewed in the literature. The intention of this chapter is to categorize confrontations within the system and possibilities how to minimize the risk of genetically modified organisms to the society. Just as the plow and horse saddle led to abundance, the satellite and drone will play those roles for today’s farmers. These applications will undoubtedly continue, but recombinant DNA technology is expected to expand horizons of biotechnological research and industry and, at the same time, give insights for a more specific and controlled use of microbes and microbial products. Use the link below to share a full-text version of this article with your friends and colleagues. Transgenic Bt corn is an outstanding example of successful application of genetic engineering in agriculture. It is no small irony, then, that controversy surrounds agriculture and the intellectual property (IP) laws that were enacted for the very purpose of fostering invention (Bent, 2006). T. K. Ojediran 1*, O. E. Adegoke 2 and I. For example the production of many modern synthetic chemicals for agriculture requires a complex industrial infrastructure. It produces its own insecticide and contains a gene from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis. She was then obtained a postgraduate diploma in Education in 1994 from the University of Malaya. As funding for public sector science is reduced and scientists are told to look for near market funding, applied science will increasingly be under the control of businessmen who are likely to give support to products that the affluent can buy.9 This is of course counter productive for using agricultural biotechnology to solve problems in developing countries. The lack of experience with GMOs has increased the influence of stakeholders in politics in the framing of the debate. Nutritionally enhanced transgenic crops are produced using genetic engineering techniques. Moreover, the institutional, regulatory regimes, especially those that affect agricultural R&D IP, are also undergoing rapid change and providing enhanced incentives for applications of biotechnology in agriculture. Agricultural biotechnology, also referred to as green biotechnology, is biotechnology applied to agricultural processes. Agricultural biotechnology delivers biomass for food, feed, genetic modifications, and molecular tools to enhance the plant breeding potential, resulting in increased food supplies, farm income, and reduced damage to ecology and environment. Note that 2019 Journal Impact are reported in 2020; they cannot be calculated until all of the 2019 publications have been processed by the indexing agency. A recent FAO report estimates that more than 800 million people around the world have been facing malnutrition and hunger. Countries will have to pursue biotechnology applications that reduce waste from food and animal production, by altering animal metabolic processes to improve the environmental impact of animal waste management and disposal [40]. Hammock, ... T.N. Just five countries, the U.S.A., Brazil, Argentina, Canada, and India account for over 90% of the area planted. The agricultural biotechnology sector (Ag Biotech) shares a common scientific foundation with the therapeutic biotechnology sector, including similar characteristics of a lengthy time to market for emerging products. While some developing nations are approaching the scientific capacities of developed countries, others are regaining ground lost over the past decade or so, but, unfortunately, many others are either stalled or slipping behind (Wright et al., 2007). Today, using genetic engineering, scientists are able to produce plants with enhanced nutritional content, desired texture, color, flavor, growing season, yield, impart disease resistance, and improve other properties of production crops. Ruby red grapefruit and single malt scotch are both derived from mutagenesis breeding. The winning journalists for 2018, 2019 and 2020 recognized by OFAB at the ceremony held on Nov.20 at Golf Course Hotel in Kampala. There is a growing alarm about the genetically engineered crops and its environment effects on food chain. B.D. For example, one of the most important products generated through agricultural biotechnology has been the introduction of transgenic crop plants which confer herbicide tolerance, in such a way that herbicides can be sprayed on transgenic crops without causing damage while detouring the growth of neighboring weeds. She graduated with a Degree in Biochemistry and Microbiology in 1993 from UPM. Is there something sacred about life and do biotechnologists assume to be masters of nature? Doing well by doing good: agricultural biotechnology in the fight against hunger - Giannakas - 2018 - Agricultural Economics - … Some other GM crops being studied are decaffeinated tea and coffee and nicotine-free tobacco. These crops are superior in terms of yields, herbicide tolerance, and pest-resistance, and have dominated agricultural biotechnology in the last decade. Later, the genetics of plants were modified by sophisticated plant breeding programs which resulted in the ‘Green Revolution’. Please note: The publisher is not responsible for the content or functionality of any supporting information supplied by the authors. Now just 30 years old, the Ag Biotech sector is entering its third cycle of innovation, with the first wave being agricultural biotechnology trait creation followed by a second wave of Ag Biotech trait commercialization. Article Volume 2018 247 Article Volume 2017 183 Article Volume 2016 39 Article Volume 2015 43 0 Comments Message Board. P. Vaishnav, A.L. There is no shortage of drive or creativity in the science in many developing countries, and training of individuals is far easier to provide than an industrial infrastructure. More recently, agricultural biotechnology has expanded to improve human health, including the design of biofortified and functional food crops. The journal publishes high quality articles especially in the science and technology of biocatalysis, bioprocesses, agricultural biotechnology, biomedical biotechnology, and, if appropriate, from other related areas of biotechnology. Agricultural biotechnology, just like any other technology, has social and economic impacts. Articles on plant science mainly describe molecular breeding of crops for improving tolerance to abiotic stresses such as drought, salinity, and oxidative stress. In the agricultural sector, R&D is unique among industries in at least two aspects: the truly global reach of a majority of agricultural R&D; and the historical success of what has been largely a public enterprise. If you do not receive an email within 10 minutes, your email address may not be registered, Also as the major hurdles in the recombinant technology are over come by large science, the barriers decrease to applying these techniques to problems specific in developing countries. The most important transgenic crop planted is soybean, followed by corn, cotton, and canola. We will then provide an overview of IP-related technology transfer (TT). Study tracks elephant tusks from 16th century shipwreck. Almost 90% of all transgenic crops cultivated across the world possess the glyphosate-resistant trait. The next section provides examples of new traits for each. Plants that have one or more foreign genes inserted instead of their acquiring them naturally through pollination are called genetically modified or GM crops. Public attitudes toward agricultural biotechnology are socially constructed (Lichtenstein and Slovic, 2006). A striking example of this is Golden Rice, which is produced by inserting two genes from daffodil and one gene from a bacterium into rice plants so that the rice becomes capable of synthesizing β-carotene, the precursor of vitamin A.
