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

    Author : Cecilia Johansson; Marta Alarcón-Riquelme; Peter Gregersen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular genetics; Systemic lupus erythematosus; complex disease; linkage analysis; association analysis; Genetik; Genetics; 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

  2. 2. Two Optimization Problems in Genetics : Multi-dimensional QTL Analysis and Haplotype Inference

    Author : Carl Nettelblad; Sverker Holmgren; José M. Álvarez-Castro; Jukka Corander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; quantitative trait loci; genome-wide association studies; hidden Markov models; numerical optimization; linkage analysis; haplotype inference; genotype imputation; high performance computing;

    Abstract : The existence of new technologies, implemented in efficient platforms and workflows has made massive genotyping available to all fields of biology and medicine. Genetic analyses are no longer dominated by experimental work in laboratories, but rather the interpretation of the resulting data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterization and Use of a Multiplex PCR-based System: Random amplified Polymorphic DNA

    Author : Christer Halldén; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA mixtures; competition; graphical genotypes; bulked segregant analysis; linkage map; genetic distance; RFLP markers; RAPD markers; oilseed rape; sugar beet; Genetics; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Abstract : Random amplified polymorhic DNA (RAPD) is a PCR-based marker system that makes use of universal sets of short oligonucleotides that amplify random DNA fragments under low-stringency conditions. The RAPD marker system has found widespread use and possesses a number of very positive features, being a multiplex and universal system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of Novel Molecular Prognostic Markers in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    Abstract : The clinical course of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is highly heterogeneous, which has prompted the search for biomarkers that can predict prognosis in this disease. The IGHV gene mutation status and certain genomic aberrations have been identified as reliable prognostic markers of clinical outcome for this disorder. READ MORE

  5. 5. Trophic complexity of zooplankton–cyanobacteria interactions in the Baltic Sea : Insights from molecular diet analysis

    Author : Nisha H. Motwani; Elena Gorokhova; Jakob Walve; Catherine Legrand; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; bloom-forming filamentous cyanobacteria; diazotrophs; picocyanobacteria; zooplankton; grazing; molecular diet analysis; stable isotopes; biochemical indices; marin ekologi; Marine Ecology;

    Abstract : Blooms of nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria (NFC) occur in many freshwater and marine systems, including the Baltic Sea. By fixing dissolved nitrogen, they circumvent general summer nitrogen limitation, while also generating a supply of novel bioavailable nitrogen for non-diazotrophic primary producers and ultimately supporting secondary production.
