A team of British scientists led by Neil Hall revealed that they have cracked the genetic code for wheat. Wheat is the most widely grown cereal on the planet, yet politics has caused the price of foods made with wheat to skyrocket. The discovery was hailed as a landmark because it will help us create new strains of the grain that could be drought resistant and yield larger crops. The biggest hope is that it will lead to wheat that can fend off diseases, including wheat's biggest enemy---stem rust---which is a red airborne fungus known as Ug99 that kills up to 80 percent of Kenya's wheat crop. No doubt, the question on everyone's mind is whether or not this will make bread and cereal affordable again. Currently in America, over half our wheat is exported to other countries, which causes a high price here because of limited supplies, and a high price internationally as other countries pay more to import our wheat.
