  1. 1. The complex internationalization process unfolded : The case of Atlas Copco’s entry into the Chinese mid-market

    Author : Mikael Eriksson; Ulf Holm; Mats Forsgren; Rian Drogendijk; Niina Nummela; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; International Business; Internationalization process; Complexity; Process theory; Strategy process; Evolutionary process; Political process; Business Studies; Företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : Despite its contemporary relevance, we still have limited empirical knowledge about the forces underlying complex internationalization processes as when multinational corporations (MNCs) seek to enter new growing markets. Based on a real-time process study comprising ninety interviews and two hundred hours of observation made between 2009 and 2012, Atlas Copco’s entry into the Chinese mid-market was investigated.

  2. 2. Evolutionary Approaches to Sequence Alignment

    Author : Marcin Bogusz; Simon Whelan; Jeffrey Thorne; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molecular evolution; multiple sequence alignment; pair hidden Markov models; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Molecular evolutionary biology allows us to look into the past by analyzing sequences of amino acids or nucleotides. These analyses can be very complex, often involving advanced statistical models of sequence evolution to construct phylogenetic trees, study the patterns of natural selection and perform a number of other evolutionary studies.

  3. 3. Adaptive divergence in fission yeast : From experimental evolution to evolutionary genomics

    Author : Sergio Ivan Tusso Gomez; Jochen B.W. Wolf; Simone Immler; Roger K. Butlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; adaptation; divergence; selection; experimental evolution; genomics; genome evolution; population genetics; fission yeast; phenotypic variation; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : How adaptation and population differentiation occur is fundamental to understand the origin of biodiversity. Work in speciation alongside the increased ease of generating genomic data have allowed the exploration of genomic changes relevant to adaptation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Morphometric analysis of Cambrian fossils and its evolutionary significance

    Author : Illiam Jackson; Graham Budd; Jorijntje Henderiks; Richard Mann; Nigel Hughes; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Extended Evolutionary Synthesis; phenotypic plasticity; genetic assimilation; phenotypic accommodation; Agnostus pisiformis; Mackinnonia; elliptical fourier analysis; species concept;

    Abstract : The Extended Evolutionary Synthesis (EES) is currently emerging as a theoretical alternative to the Modern Synthesis (MS) in which to frame evolutionary observations and interpretations. These alternative frameworks differ fundamentally in their understanding of the relative roles of the genotype, phenotype, development and environment in evolutionary processes and patterns.

  5. 5. Conifer Evolution, from Demography and Local Adaptation to Evolutionary Rates : Examples from the Picea genus

    Author : Jun Chen; Martin Lascoux; Ulf Lagercrantz; Matt Olson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Speciation; Demographics; clinal variation; convergent evolution; transcriptome; small regulatory RNA; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär funktionsgenomik; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Functional Genomics; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Evolutionary process can be inferred at three different levels: the species level, the population level and the molecular level. In this thesis, I applied approaches at these three levels and aimed to get a comprehensive picture of conifer evolution, from speciation and demography to geographic variation and local adaptation, and then to the molecular evolution of proteins and small regulatory RNAs.
