    European scientists ask that genome editing be allowed for sustainable agriculture and food production

    Today Thursday, July 25, the European scientific community has made public an open statement addressed to the newly elected European Parliament and Council, as well as to the next European Commission, to allow genome editing techniques and with them, sustainable agriculture and an improvement of food production. The request happens in a global context of population increase, decrease of biodiversity and resources, and increase in the temperature of the planet, with the need to generate more food by improving plants and developing more sustainable crop varieties.

    Synthetic biology, worse valued than biotechnology and genetic engineering

    A research group of the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio), a mixed centre of the University of Valencia and the CSIC, and of the Language Theory and Communication Sciences Department has carried out a macro-survey at the CosmoCaixa Museum in Barcelona to know what is the acceptance of society on biotechnology and other subdisciplines, and what is the perception of gender in science. The survey has revealed that the population is more favourable to the terms biotechnology or genetic engineering than to synthetic biology. The disciplines associated with female researchers have also obtained better ratings than those associated with men. The survey has had a sample of 38,113 people.

    Carlos Vargas defends his doctoral thesis on comparative genomics of two insects with endosymbionts

    This doctoral thesis, co-directed by Amparo Latorre and Abdelaziz Heddi, studies the genomes of two insects that established bacterial symbiosis at very different times: the cedar aphid (150 million years ago) and the rice weevil (30,000 years ago). The thesis was defended on June 21, 2019 and received the rating of Outstanding.
