  1. 1. Genomic Diversity and Evolution of Parasitism in Nematode-trapping Fungi

    University dissertation from Microbial Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Dag Ahrén; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; nematode-trapping fungi; expressed sequence tags; functional genomics; bioinformatics; parasitism; Genomic diversity; Evolution; Ekologi; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Nematode-trapping fungi are soil-living organisms that have the ability to form infection structures, traps to capture nematodes. Many nematode species are parasites on plants and animals, which have resulted in an interest to use the nematode-trapping fungi as biological control agents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary Genomics of Nematode-Trapping Fungi

    University dissertation from Lund University, Dept. of Biology

    Author : Tejashwari Meerupati; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nematode-trapping fungi; Comparative Genomics; Comparative Transcriptomics; Differential gene expression; Gene duplication; Parasitism; Protein family expansion.;

    Abstract : Nematode-trapping fungi are ubiquitous, soil-living organisms with the ability to infect and kill nematodes. These fungi have developed specialized infection structures for the capture of nematodes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Identification of Virulence Factors in Nematode-Trapping Fungi - Insights from Genomics, Transcriptomics and Proteomics

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Karl-Magnus Andersson; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nematode-trapping fungi; comparative genomics; comparative transcriptomics; proteomics; virulence factors; parasitism;

    Abstract : Nematode-trapping fungi are soil-living organisms with the unique ability to capture and infect free-living nematodes. The interest in studying these fungi arises from their potential use as biological control agents for plant- and animal-parasitic nematodes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sexual selection and intersexual conflicts in water striders

  5. 5. Stolen genes, a shortcut to success Evolution of metabolic and detoxification capacities in Diplomonads

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Alejandro Jimenez-Gonzalez; Jan Andersson; Thomas A. Richards; [2020]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Diplomonads; Parasitism; Evolutionary Genomics; Metabolism; Lateral Gene Transfer;

    Abstract : Parasites do not represent a single evolutionary lineage meaning that they have evolved several times. The changes that parasites have undergone to adapt to such a lifestyle are not entirely understood. READ MORE
