A scoping review of KT focused on the field of mental health was undertaken to help inform development of a Knowledge Exchange Centre being initiated by the(More)
The pal-rec gene of Antirrhinum majus suppresses anthocyanin except in those cell lines where pal-rec has mutated to Pal, so that anthocyanin-coloured flecks appear on whitish petals. Antirrhinum majus families of very high and very low anthocyanin content (Dark and Pale) were obtained and crossed with two pal-rec pal-rec lines, one with consistently high(More)
The pallida gene of Antirrhinum majus governs anthocyanin production. The nature of the mutability displayed by its unstable allele pal-rec was dramatically altered following crosses between two pal-rec pal-rec lines with certain separately maintained lines. In both cases a minority of progeny in F1 or F2 revealed unprecedented infrequent mutability termed(More)
