Yeast produce low-cost, high-quality cannabinoids
GMO yeast makes THC and CBD. That yeast is usually fed with corn derived sugars. So your next hit is all due to corn.

More Details >> Secretary Perdue Issues USDA Statement on Plant Breeding Innovation
Hrm, so plant GMO means bringing in genes from unrelated organisms. But CRISPR editing of plant genomes for point changes/deletions, bulk changes that could/were achieved via traditional plant breeding (but difficult to expand/commercialize conventionally), and importing genes from related (how related?) species doesn't count as GMO, thus no labeling requirement. FDA still says any artificial gene modification to animals counts as GMO, and the animals get regulated as "animal drug"?

spiber Home
Here's the swedish Spiber company. Seems like a biotech research outfit, so best guess is they are licensing core biotechnology to the japanese Spiber company, which is is by itself developing the actual textile manufacturing tech via it's linkup with a japanese auto parts maker (why not a manufacturing or textile equipment maker?)

Spiber Inc.
Japanese company commercializing mass production artificial spider silk via genetically modified microorganisms (bacteria?). The fibroin biopolymer based fiber will be called QMONOS and is scheduled for 2015 mass production at the pilot plant (100Kg/month). Except there is a swedish company with the same name, and had research in approximately the same time frame, and looking for partners. Yet this japanese company's site seems to artfully mention that this is a japanese technology push. Something smells fishy here...

University of Rhode Island Make Transgenic Trout that are Myostatin Unhibited So They Have 20% More Meat for Better Aquaculture
I can understand the desire for a higher protein yield in commercial land based aquaculture, but seriously. These fish look like muscle bound gym freaks. People are definitely not going to be buying these fish whole at the supermarket. A secondary issue is that the increased muscle fiber count without a corresponding increase in muscle fats will make the meat lean (which may be a good or a bad thing, depending on the way you prepare fish for consumption). And lord have mercy is these GM trout ever get loose.
