PCR analysis of oilseed rape cultivars (Brassica napus L. ssp. oleifera) using 5′ -anchored simple sequence repeat (SSR) primers
Primers complementary to simple sequence repeats (SSRs) and with variable three-base ‘anchors’ at their 5′ end, were used in PCR analyses to compare pooled DNA samples from various Brassica napus andExpand

An efficient transformation system for chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
A reproducible and efficient transformation method was developed for Desi and Kabuli chickpeas (Cicer arietinum L.) using germinated seedlings as sources of explants. Slices derived from plumulesExpand

Genetic Resources (Including Wild and Cultivated Solanum Species) and Progress in their Utilisation in Potato Breeding
The genetic resources available for the improvement of the cultivated potato (Solanum tuberosum) are reviewed along with progress in their utilisation. The conclusions are as follows. The wild andExpand

Transgenic peas (Pisum sativum) expressing polygalacturonase inhibiting protein from raspberry (Rubus idaeus) and stilbene synthase from grape (Vitis vinifera)
The pea (Pisum sativum L.) varieties Baroness (United Kingdome) and Baccara (France) were transformed via Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated gene transfer with pGPTV binary vectors containing the barExpand

LISA verification binaries with updated distances from Gaia Data Release 2
Ultracompact binaries with orbital periods less than a few hours will dominate the gravitational wave signal in the mHz regime. Until recently, 10 systems were expected to have a predictedExpand

A search for stellar X-ray sources in the Sagittarius and Carina dwarf galaxies I. X-ray observations
ROSAT observations found no convincing evidence for X-ray sources located in local dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSph). Now with more sensitive instruments on board Chandra and XMM-Newton we can reachExpand

Carotenoid biosynthesis in plant storage organs: recent advances and prospects for improving plant food quality
Carotenoids are components of the photosynthetic machinery, intermediates in the biosynthesis of abscisic acid and other apocarotenoids and act as coloured pigments particularly in floral and fruitExpand

Honeybees as vectors of GM oilseed rape pollen
One hive of honey bees, placed 800 m from a GM OSR crop, was studied to determine the extent of mixing of pollen taking place. In a one hour period, ten types of pollen were collected with OSR,Expand
