 A synthetic Bacillus thuringiensis cry1C gene was transferred to three Korean cultivars of Chinese cabbage via Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation of hypocotyl explants. Hygromycin resistance served as an efficient selective marker. The transformation efficiency ranged from 5% to 9%. Transformation was confirmed by Southern blot analysis,(More)
The use of computational grids to provide an integrated computer platform, composed of differentiated and distributed systems, presents fundamental resource and workload management questions. Key services such as resource discovery, monitoring and scheduling are inherently more complicated in a grid environment where the resource pool is large, dynamic and(More)
The inclusive e+p single and double differential cross sections for neutral and charged current processes are measured with the H1 detector at HERA. The data were taken in 1999 and 2000 at a centre-of-mass energy of √ s = 319GeV and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 65.2 pb−1. The cross sections are measured in the range of four-momentum transfer(More)
We have developed an efficient protocol for the in vitro propagation of transgenic broccoli plants using leaf explants as starting material. A high frequency of shoot formation from leaf explants was obtained on Murashige and Skoog medium containing benzyladenine (BA, 5 mg/l) and naphthaleneacetic acid (0.5 mg/l). Frequent subcultures of existing shoots(More)

This study was undertaken to determine the effects of pyramiding two Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) genes in the same plant on the production of Bt proteins and the control of diamondback moths (DBM, Plutella xylostella) resistant to one or the other protein. Broccoli lines carrying both cry1Ac and cry1C Bt genes were produced by sexual crosses of cry1Ac- and(More)
Collards (Brassica oleracea var. acephala) are an important vegetable crucifer produced worldwide for human consumption, and one subject to severe injury by Lepidoptera. We have produced Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-transgenic collard lines that have the potential to be used either for direct control or as a ‘‘dead end’’ trap crop for Lepidoptera. To produce(More)
Several types of trap crops have been recommended for managing the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella, including collards (Brassica oleracea var. acephala) and Indian mustard (Brassica juncea L.). However, results have been variable perhaps because populations of P. xylostella develop on these trap crops and spill over to the cash crop. To overcome this(More)
