Constitutive over-expression of a maize sucrose-phosphate synthase (SPS) gene in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) had major effects on leaf carbohydrate budgets with consequences for whole plant development. Transgenic tobacco plants flowered earlier and had greater flower numbers than wild-type plants. These changes were not linked to modified source leaf(More)

The problem of interpolating functions of d real variables (d > 1) occurs naturally in many areas of applied mathematics and the sciences. Radial basis function methods can provide interpolants to function values given at irregularly positioned points for any value of d. Further, these interpolants are often excellent approximations to the underlying(More)
Vacuolar accumulation of acidic metabolites is an important aspect of tomato fruit flavour and nutritional quality. The amino acids Asp and Glu accumulate to high concentrations during ripening, while γ-aminobutyrate (GABA) shows an approximately stoichiometric decline. Given that GABA can be catabolised to form Glu and subsequently Asp, and the requirement(More)
In several recent papers ILP has been applied to Systems Biology problems, in which it has been used to fill gaps in the descriptions of biological networks. In the present paper we describe two new applications of this type in the area of plant biology. These applications are of particular interest to the agrochemical industry in which improvements in(More)
The ILP system Progol is incomplete in not being able to derive a multi-clause hypothesis from an example. However, due to the assumption that a multi-clause hypothesis can be built by sequentially adding single clauses, Progol's incompleteness does not stop it being applied to real-world applications. This paper uses two real-world applications in systems(More)
The flavour profiles of two genotypes of Charentais cantaloupe melons (medium shelf-life and long shelf-life), harvested at two distinct maturities (immature and mature fruit), were investigated. Dynamic headspace extraction (DHE), solid-phase extraction (SPE), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and gas chromatography-olfactometry/mass(More)
Application of mass spectrometry enables the detection of metabolic differences between groups of related organisms. Differences in the metabolic fingerprints of wild-type Solanum lycopersicum and three monogenic mutants, ripening inhibitor (rin), non-ripening (nor) and Colourless non-ripening (Cnr), of tomato are captured with regard to ripening behaviour.(More)
