Seeds of legumes and cereals and their by-products make up the major part of the human diet. The full nutritional potential of legume protein is limited by insufficient levels of the essential amino acid methionine and the non-essential but methionine-sparing cysteine. This relative deficiency has...

Crop loss due to freezing and early frost is widespread and expensive for both the farmer and consumer. Research into the molecular mechanisms that allow cold-tolerant plants to withstand freezing temperatures began in earnest about ten years ago, with the expectation that it might be feasible to...

Plant-derived compounds have been used in medicine throughout history. The strategies used to search for new bioactive compounds are surveyed. This search includes the selection of interesting medicinal plants, the fractionation of plant compounds and the localization of the active constituents....

Crop plants sown near populations of wild or weedy relatives are capable of gene exchange via pollen transfer. Historically, there has been concern over the possible contamination of breeding plots from the influx of pollen from nearby crop relatives, but pollen flow from the crop to the wild...

The domestic dog exhibits greater variation than any other mammalian species. The diversity in size and proportion has been created by selective breeding programmes assessed against man-made standards. This preference for breeding from particular individuals within breeds has resulted in a high...

Gene transfer in crop improvement programmes by genetic engineering and transformation ultimately depends on conventional breeding. In recent years, nucleic acid analysis has enabled plant breeders to pinpoint genes and traits, and to monitor diversity and evolution at the genetic level by using...

Food allergies are caused by abnormal immunological responses to substances in foods, usually naturally-occurring proteins. Virtually all food allergens are proteins, but only a small fraction of the many proteins found in foods are allergenic. Since genetic modification results in the introduction ...
