  1. 1. Genetic analysis of murine malaria

    Author : Susana Campino; Dan Holmberg; Nils Lycke; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Malaria; genetic analysis; Plasmodium; wild derived inbred strains; loci; cerebral malaria; hyperparasitaemia.; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; genetik; Genetics;

    Abstract : Malaria, an infectious disease caused by Plasmodium parasites, is one of the major world-scale health problems. Despite the efforts aimed at finding an effective way to control the disease, the success has been thwarted by the emergence of parasite drug resistance and mosquito resistance to insecticides.

  2. 2. Molecular genetic studies on cystinuria

    Author : Lotta Harnevik; Peter Söderkvist; Catharina Larsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Amino acid transport systems; Amino acids diamino; Mutation; Sulphydryl compounds; urine; Cystine; Carrier proteins; Cystinuria; DNA mutational analysis; Dog diseases; genetic; Membrane glycoproteins; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Cystinuria is defined as an inherited disorder characterized by increased urinary excretion of cystine and the dibasic amino acids arginine, lysine and ornithine. The only clinical manifestation of cystinuria is renal cystine stone formation due to the low solubility of cystine in the urine. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chosen Children? : An empirical study and a philosophical analysis of moral aspects of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis and germ-line gene therapy

    Author : Kristin Zeiler; Lennart Nordenfelt; Gunilla Tegern; Karin Sporre; Åge Wifstaad; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Empirical ethics; pre-implantation genetic diagnosis; germ-line gene therapy; qualitative research; philosophical analysis; medical progress; genetic disease; choice; auautonomous; ambivalence; trust; genetic identity; Genterapi; biologisk etik; medicinsk etik; preimplanatorisk genetisk diagnostik; Philosophy subjects; Filosofiämnen;

    Abstract : With pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), genetic testing and selective transfer of embryos is possible. In the future, germ-line gene therapy (GLGT) applied to embryos before implantation, in order to introduce missing genes or replace mutant ones, may be possible. READ MORE

  4. 4. INDIVIDUAL GENETIC RESEARCH RESULTS : Uncertainties, Conceptions, and Preferences

    Author : Jennifer Viberg Johansson; M G Hansson; Pär Segerdahl; Sophie Langenskiöld; Marion McAllister; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Incidental findings; genetic risk information; research participants; risk perception; free choice; framing; conceptions of genetic risk; making sense of genetic risk; preferences for genetic risk information;

    Abstract : This thesis contributes to the ethical discussion on how to handle incidental findings in biomedical research using sequencing technologies from a theoretical and an empirical perspective. Study I and II are theoretical studies that used conceptual analysis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Selector Technology : For Multiplex DNA Analysis

    Author : Fredrik Dahl; Mats Nilsson; Ulf Landegren; Ivo Glynne Gut; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Genetic engineering; DNA technology; Genteknik; Genetic engineering including functional genomics; Genteknik inkl. funktionsgenomik;

    Abstract : A majority of methods for identifying sequences in the human genome involve target sequence amplification through PCR. This work presents novel methods for amplifying circularized DNA and presents solutions for some major limitations of PCR. READ MORE
