A review. The discovery that the expression of some mammalian genes can be altered depending on whether they are transmitted through the paternal or the maternal pathway has fundamental importance. It indicates possible limitations of Mendel's first law and brings new knowledge about the genetic...

This paper reviews the genetic and phenotypic parameters for various measures of growth, wool production and reproduction in sheep. Estimates from the literature of heritability and repeatability for these traits are listed, together with the statistical method of estimation, coefficient of...

Arboviruses are active annually in Australia. Although some such as Murray Valley encephalitis (MVE) virus are responsible for only occasional human infections and dengue is restricted to the northeast of the continent, Ross River (RR) virus infects from hundreds to thousands of humans nationwide...

The role of biting or bloodsucking pests such as lice, bedbugs and fleas in the transmission of human pathogens is well known. The role of other arthropod pests such as cockroaches, ants and fleas is less clear. There is much evidence that they carry a wide range of pathogenic organisms but whether ...

Grass is the most widely grown and valuable crop in UK agriculture. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne), the most common species sown, is often heavily attacked by a complex of stem boring Diptera, with Oscinella spp. and Geomyza tripunctata the most important. The biology of the stem borers is...

The biodegradation of iron-containing minerals by the so-called "iron bacteria" is reviewed. The latter term includes microorganisms now classified as archaea rather than bacteria. Degradation by both acidophilic iron-oxidizing and iron-reducing microorganisms is considered, with reference to...

The in situ technique for characterization of feeds in the rumen is reviewed in order to assess differences in application of the procedure, evaluate the importance of procedural differences and highlight areas requiring further validation before a standard procedure can be recommended. Suggestions ...

Germplasm maintenance is considered first, under the headings conservation and distribution. In vitro techniques have facilitated efficient germplasm conservation, thus avoiding the risks inherent in conserving germplasm in the field, and also allow the distribution of virus free and pathogen...

Wheat has been a target for genetic engineering for more than a decade. Initial efforts were directed towards the development of cell suspension and protoplast culture systems for accomplishing genetic manipulation of wheat through protoplast-mediated gene transfer methods. Although regeneration of ...
