  1. 1. On the Origins of mobile Antibiotic Resistance Genes : A comparative genomics approach

    Author : Stefan Ebmeyer; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibiotic resistance; comparative genomics; bacterial genomics; antibiotic resistance genes;

    Abstract : Mobile antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs), transferable between bacterial cells, are major contributors to the antibiotic resistance crisis we are facing today. From which organisms pathogens acquired these genes is mostly unknown, yet knowledge about their origin is needed in order to limit the emergence and spread of novel ARGs in the future. READ MORE

  2. 2. Comparative Genomics in Diplomonads : Lifestyle Variations Revealed at Genetic Level

    Author : Feifei Xu; Jan O. Andersson; Staffan G. Svärd; Matt Berriman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; comparative genomics; Giardia intestinalis; Spironucleus salmonicida; Trepomonas; diplomonad; intestinal parasite; free-living; sexual recombination; hydrogenosome; horizontal gene transfer; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Abstract : As sequencing technologies advance genome studies are becoming a basic tool for studying an organism, and with more genomes available comparative genomics is maturing into a powerful tool for biological research. This thesis demonstrates the strength of a comparative genomics approach on a group of understudied eukaryotes, the diplomonads. READ MORE

  3. 3. Speciation genomics : A perspective from vertebrate systems

    Author : Nagarjun Vijay; Jochen. B.W Wolf; C. Alex Buerkle; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : evolution; speciation; genomics; vertebrate; adaptation; selection; linked selection; crow; killer whale; hybrid zone; transcriptomics; population genetics; behaviour; colouration; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Species are vital entities in biology. Species are generally considered to be discrete entities, consisting of a group of (usually interbreeding) individuals that are similar in phenotype and genetic composition, yet differ in significant ways from other species. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparative Genomics of Endosymbiotic Bacteria

    Author : Ivica Tamas; Paul Baumann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; comparative genomics; endosymbiotic bacteria; Buchnera; reductive evolution; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Genomes of intracellular bacteria are thought to be the products of reductive evolution. They have evolved from ancestral genomes of free-living bacteria through a process of massive gene loss. READ MORE

  5. 5. Birds as a Model for Comparative Genomic Studies

    Author : Axel Künstner; Hans Ellegren; Hanna Johannesson; Chris Ponting; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Birds; Selection; Gene expression; Sequence evolution; Next-generation sequencing; Comparative genomics; Molecular evolution; Genomics; Substitution Rates; Non-coding DNA; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Abstract : Comparative genomics provides a tool to investigate large biological datasets, i.e. genomic datasets. In my thesis I focused on inferring patterns of selection in coding and non-coding regions of avian genomes. READ MORE
