Advocates of biotech crops and those who favor traditional farming practices such as crop diversity often seem worlds apart, but a new study shows that these two approaches can be compatible. An international team led by Chinese scientists and Bruce Tabashnik at the University of Arizona's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences discovered that the diverse patchwork of crops in northern China slowed adaptation to genetically engineered cotton by a wide-ranging insect pest. The results are published in the advance online edition of Nature Biotechnology.

Take, for example, a whole human genome, comprised of roughly 3 billion DNA base pairs and 20,000 genes. Scientists began sequencing the first human genome in 2000. It took 13 years and $3 billion. Today, for less than $1,000 and in a matter of hours — not weeks, not months — it can be sequenced and stored as a gigabyte and a half of data that would fit on a compact disc the size of NSYNC's "No Strings Attached," the best-selling album of 2000.

Strategies for delaying insect resistance to transgenic crops rely on assumptions that often are overly optimistic, a new study led by UA scientists shows. Published as an advance online publication by the journal Nature Biotechnology, the findings could improve management practices for current biotech crops and promote development of new varieties that are more effective and more durable.

Rice will remain the primary source of food for half of the world, but the world's population is expected to grow by more than two billion in the next 35 years. Among the most pressing issues facing the world today is how to grow enough food to feed a human population that will expand by more than two billion in the next 35 years without exhausting resources and destroying the environment.
