Aflatoxin contamination in peanuts is a major challenge for health and nutrition in both humans and livestock. In this article Sharma et al., provide convincing data that over-expression of defensin genes, or down-regulation of aflatoxin biosynthetic genes through host-induced gene silencing, can significantly reduce aflatoxin contamination of inoculated peanut seeds.
