  1. 1. Portland Cement Clinker - Composition and Hydration

    University dissertation from Material Chemistry, P.O. Box 124, SE-221 00 Lund

    Author : Anna Emanuelson; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inorganic chemistry; mineralisation; hydration; polymorphism; substitutions; ferrite; aluminate; belite; alite; Portland cement clinker; phase analysis; Oorganisk kemi; Material technology; Materiallära; materialteknik;

    Abstract : The crystal structures of the main Portland cement clinker phases are reviewed and two anion centered models of Ca3SiO5 and Ca2SiO4 are presented. The effects of minor elements on the clinkering process, and on the qualitative and quantitative phase compositions of Portland cement clinker are discussed. READ MORE

    Abstract : The study of bacterial evolution is fundamental for addressing current problems of antibiotic resistance and emerging infectious diseases and lays a solid foundation for successful and rational design in biotechnology and synthetic biology. The main aim of this thesis is to test evolutionary hypotheses, largely based on theoretical considerations and sequence analysis, by designing scenarios in a laboratory setting to obtain experimental data.

  4. 4. Nucleotide Substitution Patterns in Vertebrate Genomes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Carina Farah Mugal; Hans Ellegren; Ziheng Yang; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nucleotide substitutions; mutation rate variation; strand asymmetries; CpG effect; GC-biased gene conversion; codon evolution; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Abstract : The rates and patterns at which nucleotide substitutions occur vary significantly across the genome sequence of vertebrates. A prominent example is the difference in the rate of evolution of functional sequences versus nonfunctional (neutrally evolving) sequences, which is explained by the influence of natural selection on functional sequences.
