  1. 1. An investigation of the interactions between clay nanoplatelets in the presence of monovalent and divalent salts, as well as cationic peptides utilising atomistic molecular dynamics

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Mona Koder Hamid; [2020]
    Keywords : clay; molecular dynamics simulations; physical chemistry; fysikalisk kemi; theoretical chemistry; teoretisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Clays are negatively charged nanoplatelets with a layered silicate structure. It has been observed from small angle X-ray scattering measurements, and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations (CG-MD) that clay nanoplatelets are able to form stacks, known as tactoids, in the presence of divalent or multivalent counterions [8, 5].

  2. 2. No Safe Haven : Understanding Sexual Violence Against Refugees in Conflict-Induced Humanitarian Settings

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning

    Author : Josefin Mattsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Sexual violence; humanitarian settings; refugees; Zaatari camp; Azraq camp;

    Abstract : This study seeks to explore what conditions contribute to sexual violence against refugees in conflict-induced humanitarian settings by focusing particularly on whether the physical and social insecurity in refugee camps may affect the reported levels of sexual violence. This study uses the method of structured focused comparison to study and compare the two Jordanian refugee camps Zaatari and Azraq during the period of 2014–2019. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sanitation in Moria : The Sphere minimum standards and sustainability in a protracted crisis

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Teologiska institutionen

    Author : Karoliina Korhonen; [2020]
    Keywords : refugees; Moria; sustainability; Sphere minimum standards; protracted crisis; crisis; sanitation; WASH; refugee camp; Greece; asylum seekers; environment; health; humanitarian action; development; Lesbos;

    Abstract : With over 19,200 asylum seekers living on its premises, the Moria refugee camp is operating way over its capacity of 3000 residents. Due to the uncontrolled, rapid growth of the camp, the existing sanitation infrastructure has fallen into disrepair under excessive usage. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluating Sugar Signaling during Xylose Oxidation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Viktor Persson; [2020]
    Keywords : Saccharomyces cerevisiae; yeast; xylose oxidation; sugar signaling; biosensor; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The sugar signaling state of cells oxidizing xylose was investigated through the chromosomal integration of the Weimberg pathway into previously established biosensor strains capable of monitoring the Snf3p/Rgt2p, SNF1/Mig1p, and cAMP/PKA pathways through the expression of HXT1, SUC2, and TPS1, respectively. Ultimately, two new strains were successfully developed containing both the Weimberg pathway and a biosensor for either HXT1 (TMB CB 112) or TPS1 (TMB CB 117). READ MORE

  5. 5. The Rise of Russian Soft Power : A media frame analysis of the Russia-based channel RT

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för statsvetenskap (ST)

    Author : Alexander Hedlund Kancans; [2020]
    Keywords : Soft power; Russian-Ukrainian relations; Crimea; Russia Today RT ; Content analysis; Media frame analysis;

    Abstract : In the information age, media has come to be recognized as a credible mean and foreign policy tool to pursue soft power. Authoritarian states like Russia are competing in the realm of ideas through state-funded news outlets such as Russia Today (RT). READ MORE
