    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; next generation sequencing; genotyping; massive parallel sequencing; 454; Pyrosequencing; amplicon sequencing; enrichment; DNA barcodes; Genetics; Genetik;

    Abstract : Advances in sequencing technologies constantly improves the throughput andaccuracy of sequencing instruments. Together with this development comes newdemands and opportunities to fully take advantage of the massive amounts of dataproduced within a sequence run. READ MORE

  2. 2. Parallel target selection by trinucleotide threading

    Author : Pawel Zajac; Joakim Lundeberg; Afshin Ahmadian; Mats Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; trinucleotide threading; multiplex amplification; expression profiling; microarray; generic tag; short tandem repeat; microsatellite; electrophoresis; single nucleotide polymorphism; allelotyping; 454; Pyrosequencing; Genetic engineering including functional genomics; Genteknik inkl. funktionsgenomik;

    Abstract : DNA is the code for all life. Via intermediary RNA the information encoded by the genome is relayed to proteins executing the various functions in a cell. Together, this repertoire of inherently linked biological macromolecules determines all characteristics and features of a cell. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cobalt and Nickel Bioavailability for Biogas Formation

    Author : Jenny Gustavsson; Bo Svensson; Anna Karlsson; Piet N.L. Lens; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Biogas production; bioavailability; cobalt; nickel; sequential extraction; S XANES; 454-pyrosequencing.; Biogasproduktion; biotillgänglighet; kobolt; nickel; sekventiell extraktion; S XANES; 454-pyrosekvensering;

    Abstract : Supplementation of trace metals such as Co and Ni may improve anaerobic digestion of organic material for biogas formation. Which trace metals that are needed and the quantity to apply are, at least partly, related to metal speciation and bioavailability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Recruitment ecology and fungal interactions in mycoheterotrophic Ericaceae

    Author : Veronika A. Johansson; Ove Eriksson; Andrew Taylor; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 454 Pyrosequencing; Dispersal limitation; Dust seeds; Ectomycorrhiza; Ericaceae; Microsite limitation; Monotropa hypopitys; Mycoheterotroph; Pyroleae; Seed limitation; Stable isotopes; Subterranean seedling; Symbiotic germination; Tricholoma; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : There are generally two contrasting alternatives to what limits recruitment in plants, namely the availability of seeds (seed limitation) or the quality or quantity of suitable sites (microsite limitation). Dust seeds, the smallest existing seeds, lack or have minimal nutrient reserves. READ MORE
