  1. 1. Evolutionary Dynamics of Mutation and Gene Transfer in Bacteria

    Author : Peter A Lind; Dan I Andersson; J. Arjan G. M. de Visser; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fitness cost; bacterial evolution; gene amplification; mutational biases; GC content; synonymous substitutions; horizontal gene transfer; experimental evolution; Bacteriology; Bakteriologi; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi; Genetics; Genetik; Biology; Biologi; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : The study of bacterial evolution is fundamental for addressing current problems of antibiotic resistance and emerging infectious diseases and lays a solid foundation for successful and rational design in biotechnology and synthetic biology. The main aim of this thesis is to test evolutionary hypotheses, largely based on theoretical considerations and sequence analysis, by designing scenarios in a laboratory setting to obtain experimental data.

  2. 2. Risk Factors for Stroke in Adult Men : A Population-based Study

    Author : Bernice Wiberg; Lars Lind; Johan Sundström; Björn Zethelius; Peter Appelros; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; risk factor; stroke; TIA; lipoproteins; fatty acids; insulin resistance; proinsulin; clamp; cognitive function; epidemiology; Trail Making Test; stroke mortality; dependency; Geriatrics and medical gerontology; Geriatrik och medicinsk gerontologi; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : In the last decades our knowledge concerning cardiovascular risk factors has grown rapidly through results from longitudinal studies. However, despite new treatment, in Western countries coronary heart disease remains the leading cause of death and stroke is still the leading cause of severe disability. READ MORE

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders and it is caused by a loss of dopamine (DA) producing neurons in the basal ganglia in the brain. The PD patient suffers from motor symptoms such as tremor, bradykinesia and rigidity and treatment with levodopa (LD), the precursor of DA, has positive effects on these symptoms. READ MORE

  4. 4. A study of tailoring acoustic porous material properties when designing lightweight multilayered vehicle panels

    Author : Eleonora Lind Nordgren; Peter Göransson; Olivier Dazel; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; porous material; optimization; Biot theory; acoustic wave propagation;

    Abstract : The present work explores the possibilities of adapting poro-elastic lightweight acoustic materials to specific applications. More explicitly, a design approach is presented where finite element based numerical simulations are combined with optimization techniques to improve the dynamic and acoustic properties of lightweight multilayered panels containing poro-elastic acoustic materials.

  5. 5. Belysningsfrågor i byggprocessen : Orsaker till brister och förslag till en förbättrad process

    Author : Peter Pertola; Hans Lind; Göran Lindahl; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The fundamental questions in this licentiate thesis are why we do not have better lighting in our buildings and what can be done to improve the situation. Focus is how issues related to lighting are handled during the construction process and one hypothesis is that good intentions concerning lighting in the early stages of the process to a large extent can disappear during the later stages of the process.
