Net form net blotch, caused by the necrotrophic fungal pathogen Pyrenophora teres f. teres, is a destructive foliar disease of barley with the potential to cause significant yield loss in major production regions throughout the world. The complexity of the host-parasite genetic interactions in this pathosystem hinders the deployment of effective resistance(More)
BACKGROUND Individuals with a history of recurrent depression have a high risk of repeated depressive relapse or recurrence. Maintenance antidepressants for at least 2 years is the current recommended treatment, but many individuals are interested in alternatives to medication. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has been shown to reduce risk of(More)
A CIho 5791 × Tifang recombinant inbred mapping population was developed and used to identify major dominant resistance genes on barley chromosomes 6H and 3H in CI5791 and on 3H in Tifang. The barley line CIho 5791 confers high levels of resistance to Pyrenophora teres f. teres, causal agent of net form net blotch (NFNB), with few documented isolates(More)
for their roles in recruiting participants for the PREVENT study dataset. Matthew J. Williams took the lead role in the study design, data collection, data analysis, and writing of this manuscript. Anke Karl and Willem Kuyken supervised the study and assisted in manuscript preparation. Tim
A diverse collection of barley lines was phenotyped with three North American Pyrenophora teres f. teres isolates and association analyses detected 78 significant marker-trait associations at 16 genomic loci. Pyrenophora teres f. teres is a necrotrophic fungal pathogen and the causal agent of the economically important foliar disease net form net blotch(More)
BACKGROUND Early identification of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and subsequent instigation of risk modification strategies could minimise disease progression and reduce overall risk of cardiovascular (CV) mortality. However, the feasibility and value of primary care PAD screening is uncertain. AIM This study (the PIPETTE study - Peripheral arterial(More)
Soybean cyst nematode (SCN; Heterodera glycines Ichinohe) reproduces on the roots of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and can cause reductions in plant growth and seed yield. The molecular changes in common bean roots caused by SCN infection are unknown. Identification of genetic factors associated with SCN resistance could help in development of(More)
