Pigs' genetic code altered in bid to tackle deadly virus

Researchers have made an advance in the fight against a deadly virus that affects pigs. The team used advanced genetic techniques to produce pigs that are potentially resilient to African Swine Fever -- a highly contagious disease that kills up to two-thirds of infected animals. The new pigs carry a version of a gene that is usually found in warthogs and bush pigs, which researchers...

Reducing GM crop contamination risks by turning cross-pollinators into self-pollinators

Genetically modified crops have long drawn fire from opponents worried about potential contamination of conventional crops and other plants. Now a plant gene discovered by University of Guelph scientists might help farmers reduce the risk of GM contamination and quell arguments against the use of transgenic food crops, says Sherif Sherif, lead author of a new research paper describing the...
