As methods and applications for biotechnology in agriculture continue to advance at a rapid pace, regulators work to maintain a balance between safety and potentially rapid progress in food production.
As one of the researchers who helped developed pigs resistant to the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) virus said, "At the very least, the development of PRRS-resistant pigs is a new tool for im
Updated results of an ongoing research project from Gardner Angus Ranch shows how breeding typical "Southern" cows with high-quality Angus sires can significantly improve the performance and carcass value of their proge
The World Health Organization (WHO) this week released the first report from its Global Antimicrobial Surveillance System (GLASS), showing high levels of antibiotic resistance in human pathogens worldwide.
