    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.

  2. 2. Microbial Risks in Surface Water Sources

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Åström; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface water; Bifidobacteria; Microbial source tracking; Cryptosporidium.; QMRA; Flow-weighted sampling; Pathogens; Bacteroidales; Stochastic modelling; qPCR;

    Abstract : Microbial risks need to be properly handled for the provision of healthy drinking water. The mitigation of pathogens in the water source lowers the risk for infection associated with nominal and suboptimal drinking water treatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Antibiotic resistance in the environment: a contribution from metagenomic studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Johan Bengtsson-Palme; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibiotic resistance; metagenomics; bioinformatics; next generation sequencing; resistance selection;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance accounts for hundreds of thousands of deaths annually, and its projected increase has made the WHO recognize it as a major global health threat. In the last decade, evidence has mounted suggesting that the environment plays an important role in the progression of resistance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physiology of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Producing Recombinant Insulin in Continuous Culture

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Ali Kazemi Seresht; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; unfolded protein response; Keywords: heterologous protein production; prolonged chemostat; transcriptome; insulin analogue precursor; metabolic adaptation; URA3d; plasmid copy number; promoter truncation; high cell density cultivation; TPI1;

    Abstract : The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has widely been used as a host for the production of heterologous proteins. High-level production of heterologous proteins is likely to impose a metabolic burden on the host cell and can thus affect various aspects of cellular physiology. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lactic acid bacterial symbionts from the honeybee: Characteristics and applications in wound management

    University dissertation from Division of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Éile Butler; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; wound management; honey; extracellular proteins; bioactive substances; honeybee; Lactic acid bacteria;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance is now a large threat with worldwide agreement that we will fall into a post-antibiotic era unless there is suitable treatment alternatives discovered. In recent years, chronic wounds have become a major burden on society and treatment is complicated. READ MORE
