  1. 1. Evaluation of strategies for construction of protease libraries in yeast.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi; Lunds universitet/Bioteknik

    Author : Sidharth Jaya Sankar; [2022]
    Keywords : Yeast; GFP-fusion technology; protease; applied microbiology; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Proteases are a group of enzymes that are involved in breaking down larger proteins into smaller polypeptides or single amino acids, and they are used in various applications. In this project, the potential of budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as host for the construction of protease libraries is evaluated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Utilizing Genetic Algorithm and Machine Learning to Optimize a Control System in Generators : Using a PID controller to damp terminal voltage oscillations

    University essay from Mälardalens universitet/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Fredrik Strand; [2022]
    Keywords : AVR; AI; data-driven; GA; SVM; GPR; SVR; Ziegler-Nichols; Z-N;

    Abstract : Hydropower is an important part of renewable power production in Sweden. The voltage stability of the already existing hydropower needs to be improved. One way to do this is by improving the control system that damp terminal voltage oscillations. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of copulatory wound infliction on fitness in Drosophila melanogaster

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Dennis Leandersson; [2021]
    Keywords : Copulatory wounding; Fecundity; Drosophila; Fitness; Cryptic female choice; Adaptive harm hypothesis; Pleiotropic harm hypothesis;

    Abstract : One of the more fascinating Darwinian puzzles in sexual selection is that of copulatory wounding. For those taxa displaying this behavior, and that does not engage in traumatic insemination, the function of wound infliction during copulation remains unknown. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluating patterns of selection in reproductiveand digestive protein genes of seed beetles. : A comparative approach.

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Konstantinos Papachristos; [2021]
    Keywords : Seed beetles; Seminal fluid proteins; Female reproductive proteins; Digestive Proteins; Natural selection; Molecular evolution;

    Abstract : Seminal fluid proteins (SFPs) have been shown to affect the physiology,behaviour and immune responses of mated females in some species. Thisopen window for manipulation of female’s fitness allows the possibility forcomplex evolutionary dynamics between the SFPs and proteins of femalesthat would counter the effects of the former, the female reproductive proteins (FRPs).

  5. 5. eValuate - A Sports Analytics mHealth App : Featuring the Perceived Load and Fitness Scale for Overtraining Prevention and Intervention

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Ala Abed; [2020]
    Keywords : mHealth; sports analytics; app development; custom questionnaire; overtraining;

    Abstract : Health and fitness apps have become ubiquitous as smart devices become a major necessity in day-to-day life. However, an obvious issue with mobile health (mHealth) apps is that a substantial portion of them lack a scientific foundation and instead utilize  experiential  stratagems.  Hence,  the  acquired  data  becomes  unreliable.
