  1. 1. Exploring Coagulation Properties in Bovine Milk Using Milk Genomics Approaches

    Author : Frida Gustavsson; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bovine milk; rennet-induced gelation; milk genomics; Swedish Red dairy cattle; milk composition; technological properties; cheese; genetic polymorphism; quantitative trait locus; protein profile; casein micelle; calcium content;

    Abstract : Swedish Red (SR) dairy cattle is the second most common breed in Sweden and hence SR milk quality is crucial for the nutritional value and the processability of the milk delivered to the Swedish dairies. This thesis will give an insight into the quality of milk from SR cows and it will illuminate the possibilities for improvements of both breeding programs and the quality of different dairy products, focusing on cheese characteristics.

  2. 2. Milk Genomics – Impact of Genetic Polymorphism on Bovine Milk Composition and Processability

    Author : Maria Glantz; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; milk genomics; bovine milk; milk composition; technological properties; processability; cheese; quantitative genetic evaluation; single gene effect; genomic selection; genetic polymorphism; leptin; direct genomic value;

    Abstract : Milk genomics is a new area of research that explores the relations between cow genetics and milk characteristics. Identifying the genes controlling compositional and technological traits of milk will give opportunities to select cows for targeted milk production. In this thesis, the impact of different genetic approaches, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Population genetic history and patterns of admixture : Examples from northeastern and southern Africa

    Author : Nina Hollfelder; Mattias Jakobsson; Michele Ramsay; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; population structure; genetic admixture; genomic variation; Africa; population genomics; lactase persistence; sex-biased admixture; human evolutionary genetics; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Organismal Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär organismbiologi;

    Abstract : The origin of humans lies in Africa, as has been shown by archaeology, paleontology and genetics. Here, we can find the largest genetic diversity and the deepest split among human populations. African genetic diversity has been shaped by a long and complex history. READ MORE

  4. 4. An insight towards food-related microbial sets through metabolic modelling and functional analysis

    Author : Simonas Marcisauskas; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; RAVEN; gut; systems biology; comparative genomics; Kluyveromyces marxianus; bile acids; genome-scale metabolic model; next-generation sequencing; transcriptomics; thermotolerance;

    Abstract : The dietary food digestion depends on the human gastrointestinal tract, where host cells and gut microbes mutually interact. This interplay may also mediate host metabolism, as shown by microbial-derived secondary bile acids, needed for receptor signalling. Microbes are also crucial in the production of fermented foods, such as wine and dairy. READ MORE
