  1. 1. Whole-Genome Sequencing of two Swedish Individuals on PromethION

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i bioinformatik

    Author : Nazeefa Fatima; [2019]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Background: Chromosomes can undergo various changes such as deletions, inversions, insertions, and/or translocations resulting in structural variation differences between individuals. Structural variants are a common source of variability in the human genome and have been known to be associated with common diseases such as autism, cancer, and rare human diseases [1, 2]. READ MORE

  2. 2. Skyddade träd i kyrklig kulturmiljö : förvaltning av trädens kulturhistoriska värden, biologiska värden och säkerhet

    University essay from SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Author : Camilla Ringdahl; [2019]
    Keywords : trädinventering; trädbestånd; allé; gamla träd; kyrkogård; kulturhistoria; biologisk mångfald; riskträd; trädvård; trädföryngring;

    Abstract : Trees, and usually old trees, occur in many cemeteries and are important as they contribute with different values. This work focuses on two of these values, cultural-historical values and biological values as well as safety that is a significant factor in tree management. READ MORE

  3. 3. Can you trust your model? A showcase study of validation in 13C metabolic flux analysis

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Nicolas Sundqvist; [2019]
    Keywords : Systems Biology; MFA; 13C MFA; Validation; EMU; Modelling;

    Abstract : Cellular metabolism is one of the most fundamental systems for any living organisms, involving thousands of metabolites and reactions that forms large interconnected metabolic networks. Proper and comprehensive understanding of the metabolism in human cells has been a field of research for a long time. READ MORE

  4. 4. Patterning of the neural tube: A 3D computational modelling approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik

    Author : Ariane Ernst; [2019]
    Keywords : gene regulatory networks; neural tube patterning; patterning of the neural tube; dopaminergic neurons; parkinson s disease; computational modelling; stem cell; GRN; Biology and Life Sciences; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s can be treated with stem-cell derived specialized neurons. In order to achieve precise directed neural differentiation in vitro we need to understand the gene regulatory mechanisms behind in vivo neural tube patterning. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sex differences in neuronal differentiation of human stem cells

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Olga Doszyn; [2019]
    Keywords : stem cells; neural stem cells; embryonic stem cells; sex differences; neuronal differentiation;

    Abstract : Sexual dimorphism has been long noted in human neurobiology, apparent most notably in sex-biased distribution of multiple neurological disorders or diseases, from autism spectrum disorder to Parkinson's disease. With the advances in molecular biology, genetics and epigenetics have come into focus as key players in sexually dimorphic neural development; and yet, many studies in the field of neuroscience overlook the importance of sex for the human brain.
