  1. 1. A View on the Invisible : A Study of Relationships between Different Aspects of Health in Populations

    Author : Aija Duntava; Ilkka Henrik Mäkinen; Hannah Bradby; Susanne Kelfve; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; morbidity; functional limitation; subjective health; mortality; health; aspects of health; adult population; Europe; structural equation modelling; regional comparisons; health structure; systematic review; empirical studies; Sociologi; Sociology;

    Abstract : This thesis studies relationships between different aspects of health. Health is a multi-faceted concept consisting of various aspects: most commonly morbidity, functional limitation, subjective health, and mortality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Population genetic history and patterns of admixture : Examples from northeastern and southern Africa

    Author : Nina Hollfelder; Mattias Jakobsson; Michele Ramsay; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; population structure; genetic admixture; genomic variation; Africa; population genomics; lactase persistence; sex-biased admixture; human evolutionary genetics; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Organismal Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär organismbiologi;

    Abstract : The origin of humans lies in Africa, as has been shown by archaeology, paleontology and genetics. Here, we can find the largest genetic diversity and the deepest split among human populations. African genetic diversity has been shaped by a long and complex history. READ MORE

  3. 3. People of the Dolmens and Stone Cists : An archaeogenetic Investigation of Megalithic Graves from the Neolithic Period on Gotland

    Author : Magdalena Fraser; Kjel Knutsson; Mattias Jakobsson; Paul Wallin; Anders Götherström; Per Åke Persson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; archaeology; aDNA; ancient genomics; archaeogenetics; mtDNA; osteology; radiocarbon dating; Strontium; Carbon; Nitrogen; TRB; PWC; BAC; CWC; dolmen; stone cist; population demography; diet; mobility; cultural duality; admixture; kinship; Neolithic period; Early Bronze Age; Europe; Baltic Sea area; Scandinavia; Gotland; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The study of ancient genomics of pre-historic human remains has in recent years offered unprecedented knowledge regarding pre-historic migration and population structure on the European continent which has fundamentally altered the current views in the archaeological community. However, the merging of the two fields, archaeology and genetics, is still in its infancy and much work is still needed in order for these fields to integrate. READ MORE

  4. 4. Complex disease genetics : Utilising targeted sequencing and homogeneous ancestry

    Author : Argyri Mathioudaki; Kerstin Lindblad-Toh; Panagiotis Deloukas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ankylosing spondylitis; breast cancer; targeted sequencing; Sweden; genetics; population stratification.; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The complex disease investigations presented in this thesis aimed to provide new information regarding underlying genetics by using targeted sequencing and ethnically homogeneous cohorts. This work moved past current methodologies and addressed data stratification issues, that might have been hindering new findings.

  5. 5. The puzzle of lichen symbiosis : Pieces from Thamnolia

    Author : Ioana Onuț-Brännström; Hanna Johannesson; Leif Tibell; Anne Pringle; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Thamnolia; lichen; symbiosis; photobiont; mycobiont; phylogeography; MAT-loci; barcoding; NGS; genome; transcriptome; Ice Age; Biology with specialization in Systematics; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik;

    Abstract : Symbiosis brought important evolutionary novelties to life on Earth. Lichens, the symbiotic entities formed by fungi, photosynthetic organisms and bacteria, represent an example of a successful adaptation in surviving hostile environments. Yet many aspects of the lichen symbiosis remain unexplored. READ MORE
