  1. 1. Validation of a Next Generation Sequencing based method for chimerism analysis in clinical practice

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk cellbiologi

    Author : Maria Högberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Devyser chimerism; fragment analysis; hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; short tandem repeats; indels;

    Abstract : Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is used to treat patient with hematological diseases such as leukemia and genetic conditions such as sickle cell anemia. After HSCT the patients are supervised for signs of relapse of disease or rejection of transplanted cells. This is done by using chimerism analysis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Who calls the African Wild Dog? : de novo SNP discovery and genotyping in the Lycaon pictus

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Mathilda Bertills; [2021]
    Keywords : snp; single nucleotide polymorphism; african wild dog; lycaon pictus; conservation;

    Abstract : Large carnivores, especially the African wild dog, Lycaon pictus, are vulnerable to human-mediated changes and climate effects. As they are apex predators, they also affect lower trophic levels. Due to anthropogenic land-use changes affecting habitat, prey, and population densities, large carnivore populations are declining.

  4. 4. De novo SNP Discovery in the Spotted Hyena (Crocuta crocuta)

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Amber Mertens De Vry; [2021]
    Keywords : single nucleotide polymorphism; SNP; spotted hyena; Crocuta crocuta; relatedness; genetic monitoring;

    Abstract : Relatedness studies of wild populations using reliable high-quality genetic markers enhance our understanding of a species’ behavior and ecology. Spotted hyenas (Crocuta crocuta) have a matriarchal social structure, unique amongst carnivores. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic diversity within Swedish national heritage cultivars of gooseberry, Ribes uva-crispa

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Josefine Nordlander; [2021]
    Keywords : genetic diversity; heterozygosity; molecular characterization; PCoA; pomological heritage; Ribes grossularia; Ribes uva-crispa; SSR markers;

    Abstract : In the year 2000, the National program for diversity of cultivated plants (Pom) was established, aiming to recover old, Swedish fruit and berry cultivars that historically have been important for breeding and commercial production. A collection of mandate cultivars of Ribes uva-crispa (gooseberry) containing valuable accessions was created. READ MORE
