Improved PCR-based assays for pre-symptomatic diagnosis of light leaf spot and determination of mating type of Pyrenopeziza brassicae on winter oilseed rape
An existing PCR-based method for diagnosis of the winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus ssp oleifera) fungal pathogen Pyrenopeziza brassicae (cause of light leaf spot) was improved by the development of a pair of primers ...

Environmental assessment of sugar beet production
Environmental impact assessments are often used to aid decision-making on complex planning issues and the use of such techniques within agriculture is about to come of age. Sophisticated risk assessment methods are now ...
Detection of airborne fungal spores sampled by rotating-arm and Hirst-type spore traps using polymerase chain reaction assays
Conventional methods for detecting airborne fungal spores rely on either optical identification or culturing and can be time consuming or unreliable. A method for purifying DNA from conventional spore samplers and detecting ...
In vivo evaluation of novel hyaluronan/chitosan microparticulate delivery systems for the nasal delivery of gentamicin in rabbits
Biodegradable microparticles containing gentamicin were prepared using chitosan hydroglutamate (CH), hyaluronic acid (HA) and a combination Of both polymers by a solvent evaporation method. These formulations were administered ...
Protective mechanism of stabilising excipients against dehydration in the freeze-drying of proteins
To investigate the influence of type and amount of excipient on the preservation of the native structure and the biologic activity of freeze-dried lysozyme and catalase
Reported sleep patterns in obsessive compulsive disorder
Previous studies of sleep disturbance in OCD have produced contradictory findings. This may be due to different methodological approaches but may also reflect the fact that many studies have not screened OCD patients for ...
Maturation of ascospores of A-group and B-group Leptosphaeria maculans (stem canker) on winter oilseed rape debris
(British Crop Protection Council, 2002)
Ascospores of both A-group and B-group L. maculans matured faster at 15-20degreesC than at 5-10degreesC. At 5-10degreesC, maturation of B-group ascospores was slower than that of A-group ascospores but there was no difference ...
