March 27, 2015 — The North American Millers’ Association (NAMA) commends Representatives Mike Pompeo (R-KS) and G. K. Butterfield (D-NC) for introducing legislation that will create a national, science-based labeling standard for foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Currently, the growing patchwork of state labeling laws threatens to harm interstate commerce, drive up the price of food and increase consumer confusion. The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act will ensure labeling decisions are supported by science-based, uniform standards that are consistent in every grocery store in all 50 states. This bill would provide certainty for consumers currently 56th Annual Corn Dry Milling Conference ... May 13-14 ...

Their work has produced the first haplotype map of wheat that provides detailed description of genetic differences in a worldwide sample of wheat lines. In genetics, a haplotype map is a powerful tool for transferring sequence-level variation to multiple gene mapping projects. "All of these new, genomic-based strategies of breeding promise to significantly accelerate breeding cycles and shorten release time of future wheat varieties," said Eduard Akhunov, associate professor K-State University IGP Institute to Hold Managing Mill Balance and Control Course ...
