CRISPR/Cas technology could enable early diagnosis of devastating citrus disease

Penn State and U.S. Department of Agriculture scientists have used cutting-edge CRISPR/Cas technology to develop a diagnostic test that could enable early diagnosis of citrus greening, or Huanglongbing, a serious disease that threatens worldwide citrus production.

A fast-moving future for gene-edited foods

Unlike older genetic-modification methods, the new techniques are precise, fast and inexpensive, and companies hope they will avoid the negative reputation and regulatory hurdles that hobbled the first generation of genetically modified foods.

Can CRISPR help us stop wasting so much food?

CRISPR. It’s not what’s for dinner. Not yet, at least. But the hot genetic editing technology could be instrumental in reducing the multi-billion global problem of food spoilage and waste.

PROCESSED FOOD: Genetically modified or gene-edited: Is there a difference?

In a gleaming laboratory hidden from the highway by a Hampton Inn and a Denny’s restaurant in Roseville, Minnesota, a researcher with the biotech firm Calyxt works the controls of a boxy robot.

White Button Mushrooms as a Prebiotic May Help Improve Glucose Regulation

Eating white button mushrooms can create subtle shifts in the microbial community in the gut, which could improve the regulation of glucose in the liver, according to a team of researchers at Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences.
