  1. 1. Protein structure prediction : Zinc-binding sites, one-dimensional structure and remote homology

    Author : Nanjiang Shu; Sven Hovmöller; Bruce Donald; Geoff Barton; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein structure prediction; zinc-binding; profile; homology detection; shape string; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; strukturkemi; Structural Chemistry;

    Abstract : Predicting the three-dimensional (3D) structure of proteins is a central problem in biology. These computationally predicted 3D protein structures have been successfully applied in many fields of biomedicine, e.g. family assignments and drug discovery. READ MORE

  2. 2. LiFeSO4F as a Cathode Material for Lithium-Ion Batteries : Synthesis, Structure, and Function

    Author : Adam Sobkowiak; Fredrik Björefors; Kristina Edström; Anna Andersson; M. Rosa Palacin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Li-ion battery; cathode; LiFeSO4F; tavorite; triplite; synthesis; performance; structure; coating; PEDOT; XRD; Mössbauer spectrocopy; SEM; TEM; electrochemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot materialkemi; Chemistry with specialization in Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : In this thesis, two recently discovered polymorphs of LiFeSO4F, adopting a tavorite- and triplite-type structure, were investigated as potential candidates for use as cathode materials in Li-ion batteries. The studies aimed at enriching the fundamental understanding of the synthetic preparations, structural properties, and electrochemical functionality of these materials. READ MORE

  3. 3. From Sequence to Structure : Using predicted residue contacts to facilitate template-free protein structure prediction

    Author : Mirco Michel; Arne Elofsson; Erik Lindahl; Johannes Söding; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein bioinformatics; protein structure prediction; contact prediction; machine learning; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Despite the fundamental role of experimental protein structure determination, computational methods are of essential importance to bridge the ever growing gap between available protein sequence and structure data. Common structure prediction methods rely on experimental data, which is not available for about half of the known protein families. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human Value Structure and Emotions

    Author : William Montgomery; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Value structure; emotions; circumplex structure; multivariate statistical methods;

    Abstract : In this dissertation Shalom Schwartz’ theory of the structure of basic human values is developed. A partially new structure is proposed consisting of pairs of contrastive values (Security – Courage, Manage by yourself – Get help, Adaptation – Own will, and Prioritize yourself – Prioritize others) and non-contrastive values (Happiness, Meaningfulness, Love, Enjoyment, Respect, Deeper understanding of the world, Achievement, and Health).

  5. 5. Protein Structure Prediction : Model Building and Quality Assessment

    Author : Björn Wallner; Arne Elofsson; Michael Levitt; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein structure prediction; proteinstrukturförutsägelse; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Proteins play a crucial roll in all biological processes. The wide range of protein functions is made possible through the many different conformations that the protein chain can adopt. The structure of a protein is extremely important for its function, but to determine the structure of protein experimentally is both difficult and time consuming. READ MORE
