This invention relates to methods for identifying wheat plants that having increased fructan/arabinoxylan. The methods use molecular markers to identify and to select plants with increased fructan/arabinoxylan or to identify and deselect plants with decreased fructan/arabinoxylan. Wheat plants generated by the methods of the invention are also a feature of the invention.

A method and system for controlling moisture content of a gaseous flow. A pair of desiccant contact structures each provided with a process adapted to pass through a process gaseous stream to altering the moisture content of the gaseous stream. Each desiccant contact structure also has a regeneration side adapted to pass through a regeneration gaseous stream for altering the moisture content of a desiccant in the contact structure. The process side of a first desiccant contact structure is fluidly connected to the regeneration side of a second desiccant contact structure via a first closed recirculation loop. In an alternative embodiment a second closed recirculation loop may also be provided on the regeneration side of the first desiccant contact structure. Gaseous flow is then provided to the process side of the second desiccant contact structure to thereby control its moisture.

Methods and means are provided for reducing the phenotypic expression of a nucleic acid of interest in eucaryotic cells, particularly in plant cells, by introducing chimeric genes encoding sense and antisense RNA molecules directed towards the target nucleic acid, which are capable of forming a double stranded RNA region by base-pairing between the regions with sense and antisense nucleotide sequence or by introducing the RNA molecules themselves. Preferably, the RNA molecules comprises simultaneously both sense and antisense nucleotide sequence.

An electromechanical transducer, including: one or more first mechanical resonator structures having respective first fundamental oscillation resonance frequencies; and a second mechanical resonator structure including one or more electromechanical transducer components, and having a second fundamental oscillation resonance frequency that is substantially greater than the first fundamental resonance frequencies of the first mechanical resonator structures; wherein oscillations of the first mechanical resonator structures driven by external mechanical vibrations cause the first mechanical resonator structures to intermittently couple with the second resonating structure to drive oscillations of the second resonating structure such that the electromechanical transducer components of the second mechanical resonator structure convert the oscillations of the second resonating structure to electrical energy or signals.

A process for producing a preform by cold spray deposition, the process comprising: providing a starter substrate about a preform axis of rotation, the starter substrate having at least one axial end having a substantially flat deposition surface; rotating the starter substrate about the preform axis of rotation; depositing material onto the deposition surface of the starter substrate using cold spray deposition to form a product deposition surface, the cold spray deposition process including a cold spray applicator through which the material is sprayed onto the deposition surface; successively depositing material onto a respective top product deposition surface using cold spray deposition to form successive deposition layers of the material; and moving at least one of: the cold spray applicator; or the starter substrate and preform product, relative to the other in an axial direction along the preform axis of rotation to maintain a constant distance between the cold spray applicator and the top product deposition surface, thereby forming a preform product of a selected length, wherein the cold spray applicator is moved in a plane perpendicular to the preform axis of rotation so as to deposit material as a substantially flat surface on each respective deposition surface of the starter substrate or product deposition surface of the preform product.
