    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.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Det senaste decenniet har resistansen mot antibiotika ökat enormt och visat sig vara ett stort problem för många människor runt om hela världen. Överanvändning av antibiotika i maten, jordbruket och den farmaceutiska industrin har resulterat i en epidemi av infektioner som är resistenta mot nuvarande antibiotika och blir allt svårare att behandla.

    Abstract : Pericytes are cells of mesenchymal origin located on the abluminal side, juxtapositioned to the endothelial cells in capillaries, venules and small arterioles. They are important for maintaining vessel integrity in resting tissues as well as the formation and stabilization of new vessels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Distribution and activity of nitrogen-fixing bacteria in marine and estuarine waters

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Hanna Farnelid; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; 454-pyrosequencing; diazotrophs; heterotrophic bacteria; marine bacteria; marine microbial ecology; microbiology; nifH; nitrogenase; nitrogen fixation; PCR; qPCR;

    Abstract : In aquatic environments the availability of nitrogen (N) generally limits primary production. N2-fixing prokaryotes (diazotrophs) can convert N2 gas into ammonium and provide significant input of N into the oceans. Cyanobacteria are thought to be the main N2-fixers but diazotrophs also include a wide range of heterotrophic bacteria. READ MORE
