CE and HPLC applications for rAAV characterisation

Despite recent advances in the gene therapy field, significant challenges lie ahead for the consistent manufacturing and release of these medicines. Analytical methods and automation need to keep pace as more medicines move towards the market and more quality control resources are required. Well-developed methods on robust platforms will be crucial to ensure the quality of these novel medicines for the doctors and patients who need them.

Vertically transmitted endophyte improved plant-rhizobacteria interaction

Plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) have been identified as potential biofertilizers, eco-friendly, renewable and have been demonstrated to actively restore soil fertility. Beyond this, they have been shown to be a promising biological resource to augment chemical fertilizer, and drastically reduce its application and subsequent negative effects.

The future of GMOs, gene editing and plant biotechnology in post-Brexit UK

Growing and selling genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is permitted in the UK but GMO products are subject to a lengthy and stringent EU authorization process. There are currently no GM crops grown commercially in the UK, but they are imported. So, what is the UK’s relationship with GM products, and where do we stand on gene editing? We spoke with Nigel Halford, Principal Research Scientist at Rothamsted Research, UK.

Phytobiomes Alliance: Convergent Research & Regulatory Science Activities

Kellye Eversole told us that “a major paradigm shift in agricultural production is required to meet the demands of a global world population projected to reach 9.7 billion in 2050. We have to increase crop productivity sustainably while preserving biodiversity, natural resources, and grower income in the context of climate change.”
