    Abstract : In this thesis, bio-nanocomposites made from two alternative biopolymers and montmorillonite (Mnt) clay have been investigated by molecular modelling. These biopolymers are xyloglucan (XG) and chitosan (CHS), both of which are abundant, renewable, and cost-effective. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cell wall biosynthesis in the pathogenic oomycete Saprolegnia parasitica

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Elzbieta Rzeszutek; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cellulose biosynthesis; chitin biosynthesis; cellulose synthase genes; chitin synthase genes; oomycetes; Saprolegnia parasitica; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : The oomycete Saprolegnia parasitica is a fungus-like microorganism responsible for the fish disease saprolegniosis, which leads to important economic losses in aquaculture. Currently, there is no efficient method to control the infection and therefore methods for disease management are urgently needed. READ MORE
