  1. 1. Missing the mark on malaria?A quantitative study of the effects of the 2007 Malawian malaria treatment change on under-five mortality

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Cecilia Smitt Meyer; [2020-02-18]
    Keywords : Under-five mortality; Difference-in-difference; Malaria; Malawi;

    Abstract : Malaria continues to impose a high burden on the Malawian population, in particular on children under the age of five, accounting for about 20 percent of all deaths among under-fives in 2000. In an effort to curb these numbers, the Malawian government launched a new Malaria Strategic Plan in 2005, aimed at reducing malaria morbidity and mortality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neural networks for imputation of missing genotype data : An alternative to the classical statistical methods in bioinformatics

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Alfred Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : genetics; imputation; bioinformatics; neural networks; GWAS;

    Abstract : In this project, two different machine learning models were tested in an attempt at imputing missing genotype data from patients on two different panels. As the integrity of the patients had to be protected, initial training was done on data simulated from the 1000 Genomes Project. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy reconstruction with artificial neural networks on LDMX simulations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Daniel Magdalinski; [2020]
    Keywords : Dark matter; LDMX; electromagnetic calorimeter; neural networks; convolutional neural networks; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : It is clear from evidence such as rotational curves and cosmic microwave background measurements that dark matter exists. The light dark matter experiment (LDMX) will search for dark matter in the sub-GeV range. It will do this using missing-momentum measurements of electrons interacting with a Tungsten target.

  4. 4. ‘What the Monkey ate before, and what he is eating now’ : a small-scale case study of local climate change adaptation in rural Nepal

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Gerrit Jan Hofert; [2020]
    Keywords : community-based adaptation; local adaptation plans of action; climate change adaptation; climate vulnerability; participation;

    Abstract : Community-based adaptation (CBA), a decentralized bottom-up climate planning approach, has become increasingly important in the corresponding literature and in practice. CBA is a significant part of the debate of how to create and provide sustainable and adaptive solutions to the negative effects of climate change. READ MORE

  5. 5. Product allocation for an automated order picking system in an e-commerce warehouse : A data mining approach
