  1. 1. Dissemination of Multiresistant Bacteria : Their Selection, Transmission, Virulence and Resistance

    Author : Gustaf Starlander; Åsa Melhus; Jørgen Vildershøj Bjørnholt; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Klinisk bakteriologi; Clinical Bacteriology;

    Abstract : Multiresistant bacteria are an emerging threat in modern medicine. Consumption of antimicrobial agents among humans, animals and in agriculture causes a selection of resistance genes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploration of bacteria associated with Anopheles mosquitoes around the world : For the prevention of transmission of malaria

    Author : Louise K. J. Nilsson; Olle Terenius; Staffan Svärd; Sebastian Håkansson; Michael Strand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; microbiota; microbiome; vector-borne disease; 16S rRNA gene; amplicon sequencing; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : Every year, hundreds of thousands of people die from malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by parasites, which are spread by female vector mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. Current control measures against malaria are based on drugs against the parasites and vector control using insecticides. READ MORE

  3. 3. Comparative Genomics of Endosymbiotic Bacteria

    Author : Ivica Tamas; Paul Baumann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; comparative genomics; endosymbiotic bacteria; Buchnera; reductive evolution; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Genomes of intracellular bacteria are thought to be the products of reductive evolution. They have evolved from ancestral genomes of free-living bacteria through a process of massive gene loss. READ MORE

  4. 4. Systematics of Lactobacillus spp. of probiotic potential

    Author : Alejandra Vasquez; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; mycology; virology; bacteriology; Microbiology; bacteria; molecular-based identification; probiotics; systematics;

    Abstract : Lactobacillus is a heterogeneous bacterial genus comprising at present 91 species. The high species number often makes classification and identification difficult, especially as the taxonomy to a high degree has been based on phenotypical traits. READ MORE

  5. 5. Relation Between Drug Exposure and Selection of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

    Author : Sara K. Olofsson; Otto Cars; Dan I. Andersson; Diarmaid Hughes; George G. Zhanel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Microbiology; Pharmacokinetics; Pharmacodynamics; Antibiotic resistance; Selection; Transmission; Mathematical model; Escherichia coli; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : The worldwide increase in antibiotic resistance is a concern for public health. When the appropriate antibiotic dosage is determined, the priorities are efficacy and toxicity. The aim of this thesis was to gain knowledge about the most efficient dosing regimens in order to minimize the emergence and selection of antibiotic-resistant mutants. READ MORE
