  1. 1. Speciation genomics A perspective from vertebrate systems

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nagarjun Vijay; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

  2. 2. Evolutionary genomics in Corvids – From single nucleotides to structural variants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Matthias H. Weissensteiner; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; evolutionary genetics; genomics; population genetics; selection; recombination; chromosomal features; colouration; insertion; deletion; inversion; crow; tandem repeat; transposable element; gene expression;

    Abstract : Heritable genetic variation is the raw material of evolution and can occur in many different forms, from altering single nucleotides to rearranging stretches of millions at once. DNA mutations that result in phenotypic differences are the basis upon which natural selection can act, leading to a shift of the frequency of those mutations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular Subtypes of Melanoma. Biological and Clinical Significance

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Helena Cirenajwis; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Melanoma; molecular subtypes; gene expression; next generation sequencing;

    Abstract : Cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) is the most lethal form of skin cancer and its incidence has increased faster than that of any other cancer, rendering it a major public health problem worldwide. High-throughput screenings have opened the door to a new scientific world, which enables molecular-based characterization of large cancer cohort collections. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparative Genomics in Diplomonads Lifestyle Variations Revealed at Genetic Level

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Feifei Xu; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

  5. 5. Genomics and bioinformatics approaches to functional gene annotation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Genomics Research

    Author : Danielle Kemmer; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Biomedical research has been undergoing a quasi-revolution with the dawn of the genomics era. The flood of sequence data from the various genome projects, the task of cataloging the entire coding portion of a genome instead of identifying and characterizing individual genes, as well as technical demands accompanying these developments have posed great challenges to the research community.
