  1. 1. Is it possible to improve the bovine immune response to mastitis using immunogenetics?

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Biomedical Sciences and Veterinary Public Health

    Author : Emelie Björnhagen; [2019]
    Keywords : bovine; immunology; genetics; breeding; mastitis;

    Abstract : Mastitis is a major problem for cows all over the world. For decades selection against mastitis has been performed through direct and indirect selection. Favorable outcomes of reduced mastitis incidence include: Economic gains, reduced use of antibiotics as well as improved animal welfare. READ MORE

  2. 2. The role of polymorphisms of the MSTN, GRIN2B and DOCK8 genes in the performance of pace-racing Icelandic horses

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Author : Laura Bas Conn; [2018]
    Keywords : Icelandic horse; SNP; temperament; pace racing; performance; gait;

    Abstract : This study investigated the association of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of three different genes with pace racing performance in the Icelandic horse. The SNPs chosen were PR3737, PR8604 and PR9482 of the Myostatin gene; SNPs g.41206762 C>T and g.41218272 T>C of the GRIN2B gene and SNP g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic analysis of conformation traits in Icelandic horses with focus on head morphology and body length

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Author : Veronica Felt; [2016]
    Keywords : Icelandic horses; conformation; SNPs; association analysis;

    Abstract : In the breeding evaluation of Icelandic horses there are eight breeding goals that refer to conformation, for example head carriage. Genetic evaluation of the horse is an important part for succeeding with breeding goals and this information is taken from assessments from breeding field tests, including conformation of the horses.

  4. 4. The association of two genetic markers and evaluation scores for tölt in Icelandic horses

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry

    Author : Ida Barry; [2016]
    Keywords : Gaits; SNPs; Horse;

    Abstract : Previous studies have shown that some horse breeds carries a mutated variant of the gene DMRT3, which is crucial for horses to perform alternative gaits like pace and tölt. The mutation is also important for harnessing racing performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Epstein-Barr Virus in Oral Lymphoma

    University essay from Malmö högskola/Odontologiska fakulteten

    Author : Shyina Tai; Karin Öhman; [2015]
    Keywords : lymphoma; oral lymphoma; Epstein-Barr virus; EBV; in situ hybridization; ISH; immunohistochemistry; IHC; pathologic-anatomic diagnosis; PAD;

    Abstract : Lymfom är den tredje mest vanligt förekommande gruppen av maligna lesioner som återfinns i munhålan och den maxillofaciala regionen. Epstein-Barr-virus, som vanligen förorsakar infektiös mononukleos, har associerats med ett flertal cancersjukdomar såsom nasofaryngeal cancer och Burkitts lymfom, men endast ett fåtal studier har undersökt sambandet mellan EBV och oral cancer specifikt.
