In many parts of East and Central Africa, farmers are experiencing declining yields of cassava due to brown streak virus, a plant disease that can render a crop inedible.
(St. Louis Public Radio) Danforth Center Collaborative Research Project Aims to Reduce Hunger in Developing World | Part 1, As botanist Nigel Taylor moves through a greenhouse kept to 90 degrees Fahrenheit and 80 percent humidity, he checks the stems of young, potted cassava plants. “You can see it there, OK?” Taylor said, pulling one forward. “We’re getting lesions on the stem, this plant’s quite badly infected.” Call it manioc, tapioca or cassava — this starchy, tropical tuber feeds
Improving Crops With RNAi

RNA interference is proving to be a valuable tools for agriculture, allowing researchers to develop pathogen-resistant and more-nutritious crops. 
Improving Crops With RNAi, An excerpt from The Scientist By Narender Nehra and Nigel Taylor | June 1, 2015 RNA interference (RNAi)—the process by which small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) bind to and cleave complementary mRNA sequences, inhibiting their translation into proteins—is not new to agriculture. In fact, as a naturally occurring biological process, RNAi was mediating plant metabolism, Center’s Institute for International Crop Improvement (IICI), where Nigel Taylor is a senior research
