The interweaving of three different sorts of software based on different algorithms (co-world analysis and downward hierarchical
classification) and applied on a file (in the field of risk assessment through the introduction of transgenic plants) extracted
from the CAB (Commonwealth Agricultural Bureau) data base, has enable us to provide three types of results: Leximappe provides
a synthetic image from clusters of key-words. The main themes were identified. Alceste improves a corpus' characterization
and allows a logical reading of it, thanks to the creation of categories, along with their mutual dependencies, the peculiar,
meaning of each and their division in time. Moreover, Alceste allows us to perceive the contexts of the contents previously
identified under Leximappe. Sampler allows us to go into the details of the terms association in graphical form and detail
the specific orientations of the corpus, especially with the inscription of weak signals. Finally, this software, applied
from the categories drawn from Alceste, offers for each category a meaningful graphic representation. We can argue that the
different ways of measuring and presenting results are complementary since they highlight different aspects of risk assessment
carried by different actors, as it is underlined in social science studies of public controversy. Moreover we can follow these
actors through the categories and clusters (socioeconomic, scientific and risk assessment linked to regulation and policy)
which are more and more differenciated in time. This methodology allows the study of emerging processes in the social construction
of issues within controversies.

DNA markers near
, a major QTL for Fusarium head blight resistance on chromosome 3BS in wheat, were used to screen the Chinese Spring chromosome 3B BAC library, and a BAC contig spanning the
region was constructed. The genic regions of two overlapping BAC clones were sequenced. Based on new DNA markers developed from the BAC sequences,
was narrowed down to a 261 kb region with seven putative genes. The expression of the candidate genes was examined by RT-PCR. Four out of the seven genes are expressed in wheat spikes. But, there is no clear expression difference between water-inoculated and Fusarium-inoculated wheat spikes. Five cosmid clones containing all seven candidate genes were isolated from a cosmid library of Sumai 3. The cosmid clones were used to transform FHB-susceptible cultivar Bobwhite and transgenic plants were obtained for all cosmid clones. Transgenic plants for four out the five cosmid clones have been tested for Type II resistance to FHB, and none of them are resistant. FHB evaluation of the transgenic plants of the fifth cosmid clone is in progress. A highly diagnostic, codominant marker, UMN10, was developed and used for MAS for gene

Research with transgenic plants in the Agricultural Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences is primarily related to applications that are essential for the genetic improvement of cereals. The two main directions are connected to wheat and maize breeding and are focused on improving agronomic and nutritional traits. This paper highlights experiments in these areas, which are conducted in national as well as international collaborations. The transparency of this work is ensured by the dissemination of information about approved confined field tests to the public via the internet.
Resistance in different genotypes of tomato to

, a wild species of tomato showed resistance reaction to
under artificial screening infection studies.
, showed least penetration rate of one nematode. In susceptible wild species
, varieties and hybrid, feeding sites were characterized by giant cells containing granular cytoplasm and many hypertrophied nuclei. In
, the vascular tissues were not disturbed and epidermal layer showed lignin bodies which have accumulated and inhibited the nematodes into the roots. RT-PCR analysis to detect presence of resistance (R) gene showed a 877 bp amplicon present only in
