  1. 1. Marker genes : molecular tools for in situ monitoring of bacterial distribution and activity in environmental samples

    Author : Annika Unge; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Many different microorganisms carry out environmental functions, such as nutrient cycling, plant growth enhancement, or biodegradation. Some microorganisms also negatively affect their environment by causing disease. READ MORE

  2. 2. Orphan Genes Bioinformatics : Identification and properties of de novo created genes

    Author : Walter Basile; Arne Elofsson; Diethard Tautz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; de novo; orphans; evolutionary genetics; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Even today, many genes are without any known homolog. These "orphans" are found in all species, from Viruses to Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes. For a portion of these genes, we might simply not have enough data to find homologs yet. READ MORE

  3. 3. Susceptibility genes in conformational diseases

    Author : Malin von Otter; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : Conformational disease; Alzheimer’s disease; Parkinson’s disease; Cataract Protein aggregation; Cellular transport; Oxidative stress; Susceptibility; genes; SNP; Haplotype;

    Abstract : Conformational diseases are characterized by protein misfolding and aggregation in the affected tissue. The aim of this thesis was to find genetic support for mechanisms in common for three prevalent ... READ MORE

  4. 4. Genes to remember : imaging genetics of hippocampus-based memory functions

    Author : Karolina Kauppi; Lars Nyberg; Jonas Persson; Guillén Fernández; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Imaging genetics; fMRI; Episodic memory; SNP; KIBRA; BDNF; APOE; Hippocampus; Parahippocampus;

    Abstract : In the field of imaging genetics, brain function and structure are used as intermediate phenotypes between genes and cognition/diseases to validate and extend findings from behavioral genetics. In this thesis, three of the strongest candidate genes for episodic memory, KIBRA, BDNF, and APOE, were examined in relation to memory performance and hippocampal/parahippocampal fMRI blood-oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal.

  5. 5. Human Forkhead Genes

    Author : Stefan Pierrou; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transcription factor; FREAC; human forkhead homologues;

    Abstract : The forkhead family constitutes a group of genes which encodes transcription factors that share a common DNA-binding domain, the forkhead domain. The first member to be discovered was the Drosophila melanogaster gene fork head. Members of this family have been found in a variety of species from bakers' yeast to man. READ MORE
