How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Recruitment of food science and technology graduates remains a priority for the UK food industry in the wake of skills shortages. As a result of the contemporary pressures faced by the food industry, it is essential that students applying for such roles are aware of and ready for management, leadership, and relevant professional competencies. This...

Plants are extremely versatile organisms that respond to the environment in which they find themselves, but a large part of their development is under genetic regulation. The links between developmental parameters and yield are poorly understood in oilseed rape; understanding this relationship will help growers to predict their yields more accurate...
Article
The role of ethylene in regulating organ senescence in Arabidopsis has been investigated by studying the development of mutants that have an attenuated capacity to perceive the gas. The onset of leaf senescence and floral organ abscission was delayed in the ethylene-insensitive mutant etr1. The photosynthetic life span of rosette leaves was similar...
Conference Paper
The relationship between food security and sustainable land use is considered to be of the uttermost importance to increase yields without having to increase the agricultural land area over which crops are grown. In the present study nitrogen concentration (25 and 85 kg/ha) and planting density (6.7, 10 and 25 plants/m2) were investigated for their...

The distribution of nutrients and assimilates in different organs and tissues is in a constant state of flux throughout the growth and development of a plant. At key stages during the life cycle profound changes occur, and perhaps one of the most critical of these is during seed filling. By restricting the competition for reserves in Arabidopsis pl...
Article
Pods play a key role in encapsulating the developing seeds and protecting them from pests and pathogens. In addition to this protective function, it has been shown that the photosynthetically active pod wall contributes assimilates and nutrients to fuel seed growth. Recent work has revealed that signals originating from the pod may also act to coor...

Mutations of the SPRED1 gene, one of a family of Sprouty (Spry)/Spred proteins known to "downregulate" mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) signalling, have been identified in patients with a mild neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) phenotype with pigmentary changes but no neurofibromas (Legius syndrome).To ascertain the frequency of SPRED1 mutations...
Article
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a common (affects ∼1 in 4000 individuals worldwide) autosomal dominant neurocutaneous syndrome, resulting from functional inactivation of the NF1 gene. The main clinical features include dermal pigmentary changes (café-au-lait spots and skin fold freckling), development of benign peripheral nerve sheath-derived tum...
Article
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a common inherited complex multi-system disorder associated with the growth of various benign and malignant tumors. About 40% of NF1 patients develop spinal tumors, of whom some have familial spinal neurofibromatosis (FSNF), a variant form of NF1 in which patients present with multiple bilateral spinal tumors but h...
