  1. 1. Mutations and Mutation Rate in the Development of Fluoroquinolone Resistance

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Patricia Komp Lindgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Microbiology; Mutation rate; Fluoroquinolone; Resistance; Biological fitness; Urinary tract infection; Escherichia coli; MPC; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : The emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria world wide is a serious problem, and very few new drugs are under development. The selection of resistant bacteria is affected by factors such as mutation rate, biological fitness cost and the rate of fitness compensation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resistance to Fluoroquinolones in Escherichia coli: Prevention, Genetics and Fitness Costs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda L. Marcusson; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Biology; Fluoroquinolone; Escherichia coli; Resistance; Gyrase; Topoisomerase IV; MPC; Fitness compensation; Urinary Tract Infection; Biologi;

    Abstract : Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are increasingly a major healthcare problem but very few new classes of antibiotics have been discovered or launched in recent decades. Approaches to dealing with the problem include learning how bacteria evolve to resistance and improving dosing regimens with current antibiotics so as to reduce the selection of resistant bacteria.

  3. 3. Model Based Optimization of a Complete Diesel Engine/SCR System

    University dissertation from Division of Combustion Engines, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Claes Ericson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MPC; model based optimization; real time models; model based control; SCR; optimization; EGR;

    Abstract : Achieving upcoming emissions legislation (Euro VI) for heavy trucks is a serious challenge for the manufacturers. Apart from the increasingly strict limits on nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate emissions (PM), the limited amount of fossil fuels as well as alarming climate changes simultaneously drives the demand for low CO2 emissions.

  4. 4. Polyhydroxyl and Polyphosphorylcholine functionalized Silica for Hydrophilic interaction liquid Chromatography- Synthesis, characterization and application

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Nhat Thi Hong Bui; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrophilic Interaction Chromatography; HILIC; silica; TRIS; acrylamide acrylate; ATRP; iniferter; “controlled living’’ radical polymerization; N; N′-methylenebisacrylamide; MPC; stationary phase; Analytical Chemistry; analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the development of new stationary phases for use in hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography using TRIS-based and phosphorylcholine typed monomers and porous silica particles as starting substrates. In this thesis, several ways of polymerizing highly hydrophilic mono­mers onto pore surfaces of silica supports are described, based on several “grafting from” schemes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cost-effective Communication and Control Architectures for Active Low Voltage Grids

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mikel Armendáriz; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active low voltage distribution grids; CAPEX OPEX; communication control architectures; cost-effectiveness; MPC; multiagent systems; photovoltaics; voltage control.; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The monitoring and control of low voltage distribution grids has historically been disregarded due to the unidirectional flow of power. However, nowadays the massive integration of distributed energy resources into distribution grids, such as solar photovoltaics, distributed storage, electric vehicles and demand response programs, presents some challenges.
