Implications of land use change for the production of plant biomass in densely populated Sahelo-Sudanian shrub-grasslands in north-east Nigeria.
The production of plant biomass on small farms and in woodland in densely populated locations in the Nigerian Sahelo-Sudan is estimated in order to test the hypothesis that conversion of land from natural vegetation to ...
Association between mouse nude gene expression and the initiation of epithelial terminal differentiation
Loss-of-function mutations in Whn (Hfh 11), a winged-helix/forkhead transcription factor, result in the nude mouse phenotype. To determine the whn expression pattern during development, we utilized mice in which a β- ...
Characterization of progressive motor deficits in mice transgenic for the human Huntington's disease mutation
Transgenic mice expressing exon 1 of the human Huntington's disease (HD) gene carrying a 141-157 CAG repeat (line R6/2) develop a progressive neurological phenotype with motor symptoms resembling those seen in HD. We have ...
Exposing the human nude phenotype 
The social aspects of food biotechnology : A European view
The application of the modern biotechnology to food, notably through the use of GM, has raised concern amongst the European public. Values that underlie this public concern about food biotechnology, include perceptions of: ...
Differentiating A and B groups of Leptosphaeria maculans, causal agent of stem canker (blackleg) of oilseed rape
Stem canker or blackleg of brassicas, caused by Leptosphaeria maculans, is one of the most damaging diseases of winter oilseed rape in the UK. Airborne ascospores, released in autumn and winter, initiate leaf infections ...
Repressive coping and self-reports of parenting
To investigate whether women who possess a repressive coping style (repressors) self-report more positive judgments of their childhood on questionnaire and repertory grid measures compared with non-repressors
Genetic modification and food : the policy challenges
Paper presented at the annual Public Health Forum 1999
Comparison of Gaeumannomyces- and Phialophora-like fungal pathogens from maize and other plants using DNA methods
Several DNA-based techniques, developed for identifying and differentiating fungi in the Gaeumannomyces-Phialophora complex associated with cake-all diseases of cereals and grasses, were used to compare fungi from maize. ...
RAPD-based inter- and intravarietal classification of fungi of the Gaeumannomyces-Phialophora complex
The suitability of randomly amplified polymorphic DNAs (RAPD) for differentiation at the varietal and intravarietal level was tested on several hundred isolates of the Gaeumannomyces-Phialophora (G-P) complex from different ...
