  1. 1. Transcriptional changes in stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes during extended cell cultures

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Michel Jonathan Speh; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The recent advancement in the field of stem cell research gave rise to high expectations from both general and scientific audiences, and indeed, stem cells and stem cell-derived cells have an enormous potential to forward the fields of medical research and regenerative medicine. Nevertheless, there are still many obstacles and limitations associated with stem cell technology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Stabilizing biogas processes at high ammonia : effects of acetate pulse-feeding on the microbial population

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Oscar Dolk; [2020]
    Keywords : biogas; anaerobic digestion; ammonia inhibition; acetate enrichment;

    Abstract : This study investigated the problem of ammonia inhibition in biogas reactors, commonly occurring when protein rich substrates are used in anaerobic digestion processes. Ammonia inhibition is one of the foremost causes of failure in anaerobic digestion, leading to process instability, with symptoms commonly expressed as; reduction in biogas produced, decreased methane content in the gas and accumulation of volatile fatty acids.
