  1. 1. Exploring the Genetics of SLE with Linkage and Association Analysis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Cecilia Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular genetics; Systemic lupus erythematosus; complex disease; linkage analysis; association analysis; Genetik; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Genetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Genetik;

    Abstract : The aim with this thesis has been to identify genes involved in the pathogenesis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). SLE is a systemic autoimmune disorder, most likely caused by both several genetic and environmental factors. READ MORE

    Abstract : In linkage analysis or, in a wider sense, gene mapping one searches for disease loci along a genome. This is done by observing so called marker genotypes (alleles) and phenotypes (affecteds/unaffecteds) of a pedigree set, i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Descriptive and Predictive Models for Serial Crime Analysis

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Anton Borg; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2014]
    Keywords : Machine learning; Linkage; Serial crime analysis; Decision support system;

    Abstract : Law enforcement agencies regularly collect crime scene information. There exists, however, no detailed, systematic procedure for this. The data collected is affected by the experience or current condition of law enforcement officers. Consequently, the data collected might differ vastly between crime scenes. READ MORE
