Building A Better Bean Story

gmo-soybeans-665x385

Soybeans have gone through a biotechnological revolution. Through intensive studies and research programs, scientists have pioneered new ways for the soybean to enhance our food production systems. Dr. Thomas Clemente, Eugene W. Price Distinguished Professor in Biotechnology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has written a guest post at the GMO Answers Forbes.com site highlighting the many benefits of soy. One of the new applications for soybeans is in fish food in aquaculture.  Clemente writes: Fish Read More >

Can Technology Drive New Spurt in Agricultural Productivity?

cattle

Rapid increases in productivity have more than doubled U.S. agricultural output since the end of World War II, allowing food production to keep pace with or exceed population growth. AgriPulse recently published a piece that takes a look at weather or not agricultural productivity gains can be sustained or even enhanced with application of new technologies in the short term. An excerpt of the article can be found here: …USDA Chief Economist Robert Johansson has been explaining to several Read More >

Integrating the Production of Biofuels and Bioproducts through Advanced Biotechnology

photo_jonathan_male

The development of bio-based products (chemicals and materials) has quickly become one of the fastest-growing segments of the biotech industry and represents a significant opportunity to advance the emerging bioeconomy. Bioproducts can be made in a single-product process; however, the co-production of bioproducts alongside biofuels offers a more efficient, cost-effective, and integrated approach to the utilization of our nation’s biomass resources. Within the context of biofuel production, the biorefinery provides substantial opportunities to capitalize on Read More >
