  3. 3. Studying genetics of leaf shape variation in Arabidopsis lyrata

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Carina Kvernes Macpherson; [2019]
    Keywords : Arabidopsis lyrata; Arabidopsis arenosa; leaf shape; RCO genes; genotype; phenotype; gene sequence variation;

    Abstract : The relationship between leaf and its environment has resulted in a tremendous diversification of leaf shape within and between plants species, which is important to cope with the differing environmental conditions. Arabidopsis lyrata is a prime model plant that shows leaf shape variation within species and between related species. READ MORE

  4. 4. Identifying variation in the OMT gene in Pisum sativum and its relevance regarding protein content

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Author : Louise Carlsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Meat consumption; environment; alternative protein sources; Pisum sativum; OMT gene; QTL;

    Abstract : As global meat consumption is rising, the negative impact the animal husbandry sector has on the environment will increase. Greenhouse gas emissions have increased by 40 % during the last 200 years, and the animal husbandry sector is today responsible for 18 % of the total greenhouse gas emissions from food production.
