By G. Rakow (auth.), Professor Dr. Eng-Chong Pua, Professor Dr. Carl J. Douglas (eds.)

Recent advances in plant phone and molecular biology have opened new avenues for the advance of crop crops within the genus "Brassica" - oilseeds and greens of globally financial significance. This quantity stories advances in a number of parts of "Brassica" biotechnology. It covers using rapid-cycle brassicas, tissue tradition and gene move, molecular genetics, biotic and abiotic tension resistance, and molecular farming. members are world-leading foreign "Brassica" researchers. the quantity is a useful reference for plant breeders, researchers and graduate scholars within the fields of plant biotechnology, agronomy, horticulture, genetics, and mobilephone and molecular biology.

New Perspectives in Regeneration

Regeneration, the homeostatic skill to take care of tissue constitution within the face of ordinary cellphone turnover or lack of tissue broken via trauma or affliction, is an important developmental approach that maintains all through lifestyles. As lately as a decade in the past, any severe dialogue of the potential for regeneration turning into a pragmatic clinical software within the close to destiny had the air of technological know-how fiction or over-optimistic hypothesis.

Microfossils, Second Edition

This can be a new and fully rewritten variation of the well known textual content Microfossils (first released in 1980) protecting all of the significant microfossil teams, with info on taxonomy, phylogeny, ecology and palaeoecology. specific cognizance is given to the makes use of of microfossils in environmental reconstruction and biostratigraphy quite a few line and half-tone illustrations emphasis on sensible functions of micropalaeontology merely student-friendly micropaleontology textual content to be had content material: bankruptcy 1 creation (pages 1–7): Howard A.

Digital Teleretinal Screening: Teleophthalmology in Practice

Electronic retinal imaging played through basic care services and nurses, by way of distant photograph interpretation (teleretinal imaging), is quickly buying an important function in lots of elements of the area because it allows the detection of significant illnesses, equivalent to diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, in sufferers who could rather be past the succeed in of a informed ophthalmologist.

Joint Imaging in Childhood and Adolescence

Wisdom of the imaging appearances of the immature joint is essential for proper snapshot interpretation, but this can be a particularly ignored topic within the literature and in education. This publication offers the fundamental info on imaging of the immature joint with the purpose of delivering radiologists (musculoskeletal experts and generalists alike) and different experts with a brand new device that would help enormously in overcoming the day-by-day demanding situations posed through interpretation of pediatric examinations within the twenty-first century.

The WFP Program is ideally positioned as a venue for training faculty, students, and teachers interested in the plant sciences and science education well into the future. The future of the WFP Program will continue to depend on two vital elements: the research community and the educational community. Partnerships with ongoing research will enable the WFP Program to continue reaching a large audience. The educational community will continue to provide a vital link, particularly through a dynamic network of master teachers who use WFP investigations routinely in their classrooms and train additional teachers to use WFP.

Transformation. For WFP to be useful as a system to teach methods of agricultural biotechnology, an efficient transformation protocol is needed. A number of different varieties of Brassica have already been transformed (Thomzik 1995; de Vries and Wackernagel 1998), but most of these are B. napus canola varieties. B. rapa has been more difficult to transform, primarily because it is recalcitrant to regeneration from tissue culture. ISAT student groups have been developing regeneration protocols for WFP.

Current estimates indicate that WFP has reached hundreds of thousands of teachers through networking and dissemination, ultimately reaching tens of millions of students over the last 15 years. During the 2001–2002 academic year, over 9 million students in nine countries used WFP in the classroom. The WFP Program has continued to evolve over the last 15 years. html). html).
