  1. 1. Nucleic Acid Based Pathogen Diagnostics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Michael S. Akhras; Pål Nyrén; Nader Pourmand; Mats Nilsson; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pathogen diagnostics; antibiotic resistance; connector inversion probes CIPer ; human papillomavirus HPV ; genotyping; global health diagnostic forum; molecular inversion probe MIP ; neisseria gonorrhoeae; padlock probes; pyrosequencing; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Pathogenic organisms are transmitted to the host organism through all possible connected pathways, and cause a myriad of diseases states. Commonly occurring curable infectious diseases still impose the greatest health impacts on a worldwide perspective. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microbotryum violaceum on Silene dioica understanding traits that influence plant-pathogen interactions

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Åsa Granberg; Barbara E. Giles; Ulla Carlsson-Granér; Arjen Biere; [2007]
    Keywords : plant-pathogen interaction; biochemical resistance; breeding system; automixis; race specific resistance; extinction-colonisation dynamics; Silene dioica; Microbotryum violaceum;

    Abstract : The dynamics of a plant-pathogen interaction vary both within and among species. Both spatial structuring and specific genetic and life-history characteristics will affect the interaction and the outcome of a potential co-evolution between the two organisms. READ MORE

  3. 3. The streptococcal IgG degrading enzyme IdeS studies on host-pathogen interactions

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jenny Johansson Söderberg; Ulrich von Pawel-Rammingen; Jan Ingemar Flock; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; streptococcus pyogenes; IdeS; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The important human pathogen Streptococcus pyogenes causes both mild infections such as pharyngitis and impetigo but also severe life threatening invasive infections.  Specific antibodies (IgG) recognize pathogens and are important mediators for pathogen clearance by the immune defence.

  4. 4. Evolutionary Processes and Genome Dynamics in Host-Adapted Bacteria

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Nystedt; Siv Andersson; David Guttman; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; molecular evolution; pathogen; secretion system; Bartonella; Buchnera; Blochmannia; Helicobacter; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Other biology Bioinformatics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Övrig biologi Bioinformatik; Evolutionary Genetics; evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Many bacteria live in close association with other organisms such as plants and animals, with important implications for both health and disease. This thesis investigates bacteria that are well adapted to live inside an animal host, and describes the molecular evolutionary processes underlying host-adaptation, based on bacterial genome comparisons.

  5. 5. Risk-Based Decision Model for Microbial Risk Mitigation in Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Viktor Bergion; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; drinking water; quantitative microbial risk assessment; cost-benefit analysis; health risk; contaminant fate and transport modelling; economic valuation of health effects; pathogen;

    Abstract : Microbial risks in drinking water systems can cause sporadic pathogenic infections and waterborne outbreaks resulting in large costs for society. In 2010 for example, around 27,000 persons were infected with Cryptosporidium in Östersund, Sweden. READ MORE
