    Abstract : The neuropeptide Y (NPY) system consists of 3-4 peptides and 4-7 receptors in vertebrates. It has powerful effects on appetite regulation and is involved in many other biological processes including blood pressure regulation, bone formation and anxiety. READ MORE

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

    Author : Jonas Berglund; Matthew Webster; Kerstin Lindblad-Toh; Leif Andersson; Nadia Singh; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; recombination; biased gene conversion; CpG island; copy number variation; substitutions; methylation; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    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

  3. 3. Rates and patterns of molecular evolution in avian genomes

    Author : Paulina Bolívar; Hans Ellegren; Carina F. Mugal; Mikkel Heide Schierup; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular evolution; recombination; GC-biased gene conversion; Hill-Robertson interference; effective population size; dN dS; distribution of fitness effects; avian genomes; collared flycatcher; sex chromosomes; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Evolution is the change in inherited characteristics of a population through subsequent generations. The interplay of several evolutionary mechanisms determines the rate at which this change occurs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Archaeological Genetics - Approaching Human History through DNA Analysis

    Author : Evangelia Daskalaki; Anders Götherström; Mattias Jakobsson; Walther Parson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ancient DNA; pyrosequencing; molecular genetics; aDNA; neolithization; evolutionary genetics; mtDNA; viking age; archaeological genetics; genetik; evolutionsgenetik; naturvetenskap; neolitisering; vikingatid; arkeologisk genetik; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : There are a variety of archaeological questions, which are difficult to assess by traditional archaeological methods. Similarly, there are genetic and population genetic questions about human evolution and migration that are difficult to assess by studying modern day genetic variation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immunogenetic variation along the latitudinal gradient in Scandinavian anuran species : Evolutionary processes, demography and infection

    Author : Maria Cortazar-Chinarro; Jacob Höglund; Anssi Laurila; Yvonne Meyer-Lucht; Helena Westerdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biologi; Biology; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : The evolutionary and demographic processes affecting how genetic variation is partitioned and distributed over large geographical scales is of fundamental importance for our understanding of how organisms may adapt to their environments. Northern peripheral populations generally have lower genetic variation and individuals in these populations may therefore face difficulties adapting to their local environment. READ MORE
