The article offers information on the study conducted by the authors related to fusarium graminearum forms mycotoxin producing infection structures on wheat. It states that all infection structures developed from epiphytic runner hyphae. Compound appressoria including lobate appressoria and infection cushions were observed on inoculated caryopses, paleas, lemmas and glumes of susceptible and resistant wheat cultivars.

    The article presents information about mycotoxin contamination of wheat grain in Great Britain. In 2005 fusarium-produced mycotoxins were the lowest recorded in British wheat thanks to the weather. Unfortunately, that does not mean that there will never be a problem. There are no guarantees that...

    Bacterial pheromone signaling is often governed both by environmentally responsive regulators and by positive feedback. This regulatory combination has the potential to coordinate a group response among distinct subpopulations that perceive key environmental stimuli differently. We have explored...
