- Hybridization between Brassica napus and B. rapa on a national scale in the United KingdomMike J Wilkinson
School of Plant Sciences, The University of Reading, RG6 6AS, UK
Science 302:457-9. 2003..These findings set targets for strategies to eliminate hybridization and represent the first step toward quantitative risk assessment on a national scale...
- Spontaneous capture of oilseed rape (Brassica napus) chloroplasts by wild B. rapa: implications for the use of chloroplast transformation for biocontainmentNadia Haider
The University of Reading, UK
Curr Genet 55:139-50. 2009..The abundance of such plants in sympatric sites thereby questions whether the use of chloroplast transformation would provide a sufficient biocontainment for GM oilseed rape in the United Kingdom...

- Spontaneous gene flow from rapeseed (Brassica napus) to wild Brassica oleraceaCaroline S Ford
School of Biological Sciences, Lyle Building, The University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading RG6 6AS, UK
Proc Biol Sci 273:3111-5. 2006..oleracea and warrants further assessment. We conclude that increased attention should now focus on B. oleracea and similar species that yield few crop-hybrids, but possess scope to affect rare or endangered associates...
- Risk assessment of GM plants: avoiding gridlock?Mike J Wilkinson
School of Plant Sciences, The University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading, UK RG6 6AS
Trends Plant Sci 8:208-12. 2003..Hazards should be precisely defined and prioritized, with emphasis on quantifying elements of exposure. This requires coordinated effort between large, multidisciplinary research teams...
- Production of haploids and doubled haploids in oil palmJim M Dunwell
School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading, RG6 6AS, UK
BMC Plant Biol 10:218. 2010..This maximum could be approached with the introduction of elite F1 varieties. The development of such elite lines has thus far been prevented by difficulties in generating homozygous parental types for F1 generation...
