  1. 1. Microbiome Of Ecotoxicity Assays

    Author : Asa Motiei; Elena Gorokhova; Natàlia Corcoll; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biofilm; Microplastics; Suspended solids; Aquatic toxicology; Daphnia magna; Ecotoxicology; Bacterial colonization; Particle aggregation; Microbiome interaction; Standardization; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Microorganisms are ubiquitous and present in animal microbiomes, particulates, and colonizable surfaces of test systems. From an ecotoxicological perspective, they are metabolically active biological compartments that respond to test conditions, including test substances. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proteomic, metabolomic, and microbiome studies of blood pressure

    Author : Yi-Ting Lin; Johan Sundström; Martin Magnusson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood pressure; hypertension; proteomics; metabolomics; microbiome; molecular epidemiology; Mendelian randomization;

    Abstract : Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and premature death with a substantial global economic burden. To prevent and treat hypertension, it is crucial to improve our understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms. Hypertension is a multifactorial condition influenced both by genetic and environmental factors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Functional and structural characterizations of phytoplankton-bacteria interactions in response to environmental challenges

    Author : Eva Sörenson; Catherine Legrand; Elin Lindehoff; Jarone Pinhassi; Sonya Dyhrman; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Interactions; phytoplankton; microalgae; bacteria; communities; aquatic; diversity; functions; structure; species-specific; microbiome; core microbiome; response diversity; resilience; resource partitioning; competition; coexistence; amplicon sequencing; metatranscriptome; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Microorganisms, such as phytoplankton and bacteria, make up ≈70% of aquatic biomass and contribute 50-85% of the oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere. The microbial loop concept and the discovery of the large diversity in microbial communities acknowledge that biotic interactions between microorganisms in addition to resource competition enable the recycling of energy and nutrients in aquatic food webs.

  4. 4. Processes governing the drinking water microbiome

    Author : Sandy Chan; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : Drinking water microbiome; Biofilm; Slow sand filters; Ultrafiltration; Bacterial community; Flow cytometry; Next generation sequencing;

    Abstract : AbstractSafe drinking water is far from sterile and can contain 10^3-10^5 bacteria/mL. This water microbiome can be altered through various treatment processes in the drinking water treatment plant (DWTP), particularity when it comes in contact with biofilms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards spatial host-microbiome profiling

    Author : Britta Lötstedt; Joakim Lundeberg; Petri Auvinen; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 16S sequencing; RNA sequencing; spatially resolved transcriptomics; antibody-based measurements; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Sequencing technologies and applications have pushed the limits and enabled novel studies of biological mechanisms, evolutionary relationships and communication networks between cells. The technical developments leading to single cell RNA-sequencing have enabled detection of rare cell populations while spatial resolution added insights into larger biological environments, like tissues and organs.
