    Abstract : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic microbes found in oxygen limited environments such as the intestine of animals were they may cause severe disease. Among them, the prominent human parasite Giardia intestinalis non-invasivelycolonizes the small intestine of humans and animals where it induces the gastrointestinal disease giardiasis. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the genomic study of symbionts of two different groups of hymenopterans: bees and ants. Both groups of insects have major ecological impact, and investigating their microbiomes increases our understanding of their health, diversity and evolution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Meiotic Recombination in Human and Dog Targets, Consequences and Implications for Genome Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Understanding the mechanism of recombination has important implications for genome evolution and genomic variability. The work presented in this thesis studies the properties of recombination by investigating the effects it has on genome evolution in humans and dogs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mine the Gaps Evolution of Eukaryotic Protein Indels and their Application for Testing Deep Phylogeny

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pravech Ajawatanawong; Sandra Baldauf; James McInerney; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; indel; insertion deletion; protein evolution; bioinformatics; non-bilateria; eukaryotes; phylogeny; Biology with specialization in Systematics; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Abstract : Insertions/deletions (indels) are potentially powerful evolutionary markers, but little is known about their evolution and few tools exist to effectively study them. To address this, I developed SeqFIRE, a tool for automated identification and extraction of indels from protein multiple sequence alignments. READ MORE

    Abstract : Bacteria of the family Gemmataceae belong the phylum Planctomycetes and are remarkable because of their complex cellular architectures, previously considered to be traits exclusive to eukaryotes. This thesis provides clues to the atypical cell envelope, the enhanced radiotolerance and the amazing cellular complexity of these bacteria. READ MORE
