Title From crop to model to crop: identifying the genetic basis of the staygreen mutation in the Lolium/Festuca forage and amenity grasses
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: New Phytologist
Month/year of publication: December 2006
Pagination: 592-597
Volume: 172 (4)
ISSN: 1469-8137
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1111/j.1469-8137.2006.01922.x ?
Research group: 1 - Genetics and Animal & Plant Breeding
Co-authors: H Ougham, I Donnison, IP King
Number of additional co-authors: 10
Other relevant details: Co-wrote the manuscript and contributed to project conception & execution. This paper identifies the 'staygreen' gene in the Lolium/Festuca forage and amenity grasses. Results have substantial potential for technology application and transfer in plant breeding. Featured in the media and the national press, including a front-page article in the Telegraph.

Title Cross-species identification of Mendel's I locus
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Science
Month/year of publication: January 2007
Pagination: 73
Volume: 315 (5808)
ISSN: 1095-9203
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1126/science.1132912 ?
Research group: 1 - Genetics and Animal & Plant Breeding
Co-authors: H Ougham, I Donnison, IP King
Number of additional co-authors: 10
Other relevant details: This paper documents the identification of Mendel’s I locus, which determines yellow versus green cotyledon colour in pea.

Title Identification of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne (L)) and meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis (Huds)) candidate orthologous sequences to the rice Hd1(Se1) and barley HvCO1 CONSTANS-like genes through comparative mapping and microsynteny
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: New Phytologist
Month/year of publication: July 2007
Pagination: 239-247
Volume: 167 (1)
ISSN: 1469-8137
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1111/j.1469-8137.2005.01392.x ?
Research group: 1 - Genetics and Animal & Plant Breeding
Co-authors: IP King, IS Donnison, L Skot
Number of additional co-authors: 3
Other relevant details: Leading role in project conception and execution; wrote the manuscript. The paper describes the mapping and cloning of a gene involved in the photoperiodic control of flowering from the Lolium/Festuca grasses using large insert libraries, comparative genetics and genomics. The results improve prospects for manipulating control of flowering in grasses.

Title Rice pseudomolecule-anchored cross-species DNA sequence alignments indicate regional genomic variation in expressed sequence conservation, BMC Genomics, 2007, 8:283
Output type: Internet publication
Publisher: Biomed Central Ltd
Publication date: 20/08/2007
ISSN: 1471-2164
URL: Original article on web ?
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-8-283 ?
Research group: 1 - Genetics and Animal & Plant Breeding
Co-authors: H Ougham, H Thomas, I King
Number of additional co-authors: 2
Other relevant details: IA conceived and undertook the project and wrote the paper. Bioinformatic analyses characterising genomic resources available for monocot research. Comparisons are made of gene sequence representation in plant DNA databases with the gene complement of rice. Associations between physical position in rice and sequence alignments identified are discussed in context.
