  1. 1. Archaeological Genetics - Approaching Human History through DNA Analysis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Evangelia Daskalaki; Anders Götherström; Mattias Jakobsson; Walther Parson; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ancient DNA; pyrosequencing; molecular genetics; aDNA; neolithization; evolutionary genetics; mtDNA; viking age; archaeological genetics; genetik; evolutionsgenetik; naturvetenskap; neolitisering; vikingatid; arkeologisk genetik; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : There are a variety of archaeological questions, which are difficult to assess by traditional archaeological methods. Similarly, there are genetic and population genetic questions about human evolution and migration that are difficult to assess by studying modern day genetic variation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Domestication Effects on the Stress Response in Chickens Genetics, Physiology, and Behaviour

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Amir Fallahshahroudi; Per Jensen; Frank Albert; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Animal domestication; stress response; gene expression; QTL; eQTL;

    Abstract : Animal domestication, the process where animals become adapted to living in proximity to humans, is associated with the alteration of multiple traits, including decreased fearfulness and stress response. With an estimated population of 50 billion, the domesticated chicken is the most populous avian species in the world. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular population genetics of inducible defense genes in Populus tremula

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Carolina Bernhardsson; Stefan Jansson; Santiago González-Martinez; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Populus; herbivore defense; adaptation; population genetics; population structure; association mapping; complex traits; evolutionär genetik; evolutionary genetics;

    Abstract : Plant-herbivore interactions are among the most common of ecological interactions. It is therefore not surprising that plants have evolved multiple mechanisms to defend themselves, using both constitutive chemical and physical barriers and by induced responses which are only expressed after herbivory has occurred.

  4. 4. Neurospora tetrasperma from Natural Populations Toward the Population Genomics of a Model Fungus

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pádraic Corcoran; Hanna Johannesson; Sylvain Glemin; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neurospora; poulation genetics; genomes; introgression; Evolutionary Genetics; Evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : The study of DNA sequence variation is a powerful approach to study genome evolution, and to reconstruct evolutionary histories of species. In this thesis, I have studied genetic variation in the fungus Neurospora tetrasperma and other closely related Neurospora species. I have focused on N. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reconstructing the Human Past using Ancient and Modern Genomes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pontus Skoglund; Mattias Jakobsson; John Novembre; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; population genetics; paleogenomics; human evolution; Evolutionary Genetics; Evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : The study of DNA variation is one of the most promising avenues for learning about the evolutionary and historical past of humans and other species. However, the difficulty associated with obtaining DNA directly from ancient remains have for long kept genomic studies of population history trapped in time; confined to interpreting patterns of modern-day variation without direct historical observations.
