  1. 1. Application of genetic analyses in studies of syndromic and non-syndromic cleft lip and palate

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Odontology

    Author : Fung Ki Wong; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Linkage analysis; cleft lip; cleft palate; van der Woude syndrome; popliteal pterygium syndrome; hyperthyroidism; candidate gene;

    Abstract : Linkage analysis is one of the first and essential steps in the localization of human disease genes. In this study, the method was first applied in mapping of the disease in two families with isolated hyperparathyroidism (FIHP) to the hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor (HPT-JT) syndrome locus at 1q21-q32.

  2. 2. Aspects of locomotor evolution in the Carnivora (Mammalia)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ki Andersson; Lars E. Holmer; Lars Werdelin; Margaret E. Lewis; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Morphology; Mammalia; Carnivora; Locomotion; Cranial; Elbow joint; Morphology; Morphometrics; Landmarks; Multivariate statistics; Allometry; Ecomorphology; Dental; Body size; Morfologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the shape of the distal humerus trochlea is analysed using landmark-based morphometrics and multivariate methods, with the aim of exploring locomotor evolution in carnivorans. Elbow joint morphology is used together with body size and craniodental morphology to characterize past and present carnivorans. READ MORE

  3. 3. Determination of equivalent hydraulic and mechanical properties of fractured rock masses using the distinct element method

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mark och vatten

    Author : Ki-Bok Min; [2002]
    Keywords : equivalent continuum approach; equivalent property; representative elementary volume; distinct element method;

    Abstract : The equivalent continuum approach uses equivalent propertiesof rock mass as the input data for a continuum analysis. Thisis a common modeling method used in the field of rock mechanicsand hydrogeology. READ MORE

  4. 4. Advancing Metabolic Engineering through Combination of Systems Biology and Adaptive Evolution

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mark och vatten

    Author : Kuk-ki Hong; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metabolic engineering; galactose utilization; systems biology; Ras PKA signaling pathway; evolutionary engineering; pleiotropy of evolutionary strategies;

    Abstract : Understanding evolutionary strategies of microorganisms may provide opportunities foradvanced strain development with the aim to produce valuable bio-products from renewablebiomass resources. Through evolutionary processes, microorganisms can attain new traitsassociated with genetic changes that may be useful for the construction of improved strains. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fractured Rock Masses as Equivalent Continua - A Numerical Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mark och vatten

    Author : Ki-Bok Min; [2004]
    Keywords : fractured rock masses; equivalent continuum; discrete fracture Network DFN ; Distinct Element Method DEM ; Finite Element Method FEM ; Nuclear Waste Disposal; Coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical Processes;

    Abstract : In this thesis, fractured rock masses are treated asequivalent continua for large-scale analyses of rockengineering projects. Systematic developments are made for thedetermination of equivalent mechanical and hydraulic propertiesof fractured rock masses using a hybrid discrete fracturenetwork - distinct element method (DFN-DEM) approach.
