  • Armstead, Ian P.; Huang, Lin S.; Ravagnani, Adriana; Robson, Paul R.; Ougham, Helen J. (2009-09-04)
    Orphan crops are those which are grown as food, animal feed or other crops of some importance in agriculture, but which have not yet received the investment of research effort or funding required to develop significant ...
  • Ougham, Helen J.; Huang, Lin S. (2004)
    Over the past two decades, the trickle of data emerging from DNA sequencing projects has increased to a flood. For example, by early 2003 there were over 36 billion bases of DNA sequence publicly available. New molecular ...
  • Tamás-Nyitrai, Cecilia; Jones, Huw D; Tamás, László (Humana Press, 2012)
    After rice, wheat is considered to be the most important world food crop, and the demand for high-quality wheat flour is increasing. Although there are no GM varieties currently grown, wheat is an important target for ...
  • Sparks, Caroline A.; Jones, Huw D (Humana Press, 2009)
    We present a complete, step-by-step guide to the production of transformed wheat plants using a particle bombardment device to deliver plasmid DNA into immature embryos and the regeneration of transgenic plants via somatic ...
