  1. 1. A Post-genomic Forensic Crime Drama : CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as Cultural Forum on Science

    Author : Sofia Bull; Anu Koivunen; Karen Lury; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; CSI; television studies; television history; genre; crime drama; forensic science; representation of science; post-genomic; genetic imaginary; cultural forum; structure of feeling; materiality; complexity; identity; body; kinship; affect; Cinema Studies; filmvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis examines how the first 10 seasons of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS, 2000–) engage with discourses on science. Investigating CSI’s representation of scientific practices and knowledge, it explicitly attempts to look beyond the generic assumption that forensic crime dramas simply ‘celebrate’ science.

  2. 2. Making Sense of Antisense

    Author : Johan Reimegård; Gerhart Wagner; Hanah Margalit; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; sRNA; miRNA; RNA; target prediction; SOLiD siRNA; E.coli; D.discoideum; Biology; Biologi; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : RNA is a highly versatile molecule with functions that span from being a messenger in the transfer from DNA to protein, a catalytic molecule important for key processes in the cell to a regulator of gene expression. The post-genomic era and the use of new techniques to sequence RNAs have dramatically increased the number of regulatory RNAs during the last decade. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computational and experimental methods for deciphering the epigenetic code in hematopoietic stem cell lineage commitment

    Author : Holger Weishaupt; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []

    Abstract : The emergence of post-genomic approaches that couple chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assays to high-throughput technique has greatly advanced our ability to investigate epigenetic features associated with normal cell development and disease. Nevertheless, these techniques exhibit some limitations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic and Genomic Studies in Chicken : Assigning Function to Vertebrate Genes

    Author : Jonas Eriksson; Leif Andersson; Greger Larson; Göran Hjälm; Tosso Leeb; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Chicken; BCO2; TSHR; COMTD1; Phenotypic variation; Domestication; Selective sweeps; Pigmentation; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : A major challenge in the post-genomic era is to understand how genome sequence variants (genotype) give rise to the enormous diversity observed in terms of morphology, physiology and behavior (phenotype) among living organisms. Domestic animals—with their tremendous phenotypic variation—are excellent model organisms for determining the relationships between genotype and phenotype. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inferring Evolutionary Processes of Humans

    Author : Sen Li; Mattias Jakobsson; Ludovic Orlando; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Approximate Bayesian Computation; TMRCA; demography; human evolution; Bantu-Expansion; Out-of-Africa;

    Abstract : More and more human genomic data has become available in recent years by the improvement of DNA sequencing technologies. These data provide abundant genetic variation information which is an important resource to help us to understand the evolutionary history of humans. READ MORE
