Obesity rates have increased dramatically in recent decades, and it has proven difficult to treat. An attentional bias towards food cues may be implicated in the aetiology of obesity and influence cravings and food consumption. This review systematically investigated whether attentional biases to food cues exist in overweight/obese compared with healthy(More)
Leaf rust of wheat, caused by Puccinia triticina, is an important disease throughout the world. The adult plant leaf rust resistance gene Lr48 reported in CSP44 was previously mapped in chromosome 2B, but the marker–gene association was weak. In this study, we confirmed the location of Lr48 to be in the short arm of chromosome 2B and identified closely(More)
Major gene resistance to leaf scald caused by Rhynchosporium commune is readily detected in barley seedlings. Screening of barley lines in this manner has been used to identify and map the presence of several such major genes. Similar detection systems have not been possible for minor genes, detection of which has come from field evaluation of plants at(More)
