Food Science & Technology
Biotechnology is providing us with a wide range of options for how we can use agricultural and commercial forestry lands. The cultivation of genetically modified GM crops on millions of hectares of lands and their injection into our food chain is a huge global genetic experiment involving all living beings. Considering the fast pace of new advances in production of genetically modified crops, consumers, farmers and policymakers worldwide are challenged to reach a consensus on a clear vision for the future of world food supply. The current food biotechnology debate illustrates the serious conflict between two groups: 1 Agri-biotech investors and their affiliated scientists who consider agricultural biotechnology as a solution to food shortage, the scarcity of environmental resources and weeds and pests infestations; and 2 independent scientists, environmentalists, farmers and consumers who warn that genetically modified food introduces new risks to food security, the environment and human health such as loss of biodiversity; the emergence of superweeds and superpests; the increase of antibiotic resistance, food allergies and other unintended effects. This article reviews major viewpoints which are currently debated in the food biotechnology sector in the world. It also lays the ground-work for deep debate on benefits and risks of Biotech-crops for human health, ecosystems and biodiversity.
We welcome applications of candidates from all emerging and interdisciplinary areas of food and urban agriculture domain. Especially, we welcome applications from candidates with research programmes related to the production-to-consumption food system, food and nutrition security as well as the advances of scientific innovations and novel technologies to address current and future global food challenges. Applicants should possess a PhD degree in a related field from an internationally reputable university. Postdoctoral experience of at least 2 years is required and industrial experience is highly valued. Appointee will be expected to establish an independent research programme that can compete strongly for external funding. In addition, the appointee is expected to guide research students, and teach undergraduate and postgraduate subjects.
Environmental impacts of food production
Not only has demand for all three increased, but they are also strongly interlinked: food production requires water and energy ; traditional energy production demands water resources; agriculture provides a potential energy source. This article focuses on the environmental impacts of food. Ensuring everyone in the world has access to a nutritious diet in a sustainable way is one of the greatest challenges we face. We cover the human aspects of food and nutrition in various entries, including hunger and undernourishment , micronutrient deficiency , food per person , diet compositions and obesity. Over the last few centuries, this has changed dramatically: wild habitats have been squeezed out by turning it into agricultural land. In the visualization we see the breakdown of global land area today. Half of all habitable land is used for agriculture.
EJFA is publishing 12 issues per year per volume. Issues will appear online prior to printing. And, soon after final acceptance, the article with abstract and doi numbers will appear in e-Preview issues section. PDFs will be uploaded as per schedule. Any researchers can submit proposal for organizing special issues, but the final decision will be from editorial office.

Я не мог позволить себе роскошь… - Директор знает, что вы послали в Испанию частное лицо. - Сьюзан, - сказал Стратмор, уже теряя терпение, - директор не имеет к этому никакого отношения. Он вообще не в курсе дела. Сьюзан смотрела на Стратмора, не веря своим ушам.
Они работали. Сьюзан буквально онемела, когда эта страшная правда дошла до ее сознания. Северная Дакота - это Грег Хейл. Глаза ее не отрывались от экрана. Мозг лихорадочно искал какое-то другое объяснение, но не находил. Перед ее глазами было внезапно появившееся доказательство: Танкадо использовал меняющуюся последовательность для создания функции меняющегося открытого текста, а Хейл вступил с ним в сговор с целью свалить Агентство национальной безопасности. - Это н-не… - заикаясь, произнесла она вслух, - невероятно.
