  1. 1. Dual RNA-seq analysis of host-pathogen interaction in Eimeria infection of chickens

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Arnar Kári Sigurðarson Sandholt; [2020]
    Keywords : Dual RNA-seq; Bioinformatics; Eimeria tenella; Gene co-expression networks; Chicken;

    Abstract : Eimeria tenella is a eukaryotic, intracellular parasite that, along with six other Eimeria species, causes coccidiosis in chickens. This disease can result in weight loss or even death and is estimated to cause 2 billion euros of damages to the chicken industry each year. While much is known of the life cycle of E. READ MORE

  2. 2. Causality in Coexpression

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Carolina Barros; [2020]
    Keywords : bioinformatics; computational biology; genomics; causality; genetics; coexpression;

    Abstract : One of the main goals of genetics has been to understand the link between genotype and phenotype. Using yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) as our model organism, we take a closer look at the connection between genetic variation and gene expression to learn more about the mechanisms of gene regulation.

  3. 3. Optimizing signal peptides for expression of recombinant antibodies in HEK293 cells

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Gustav Myhrinder; [2020]
    Keywords : Signal peptide; antibody; mammalian cell; HEK293; secretory pathway;

    Abstract : Monoclonal antibodies are well-established as a therapeutic in the biopharmaceutical market, targeting a variety of diseases and with 79 approved products by the United States Food and Drug Administration in December 2019. Therapeutic monoclonal antibodies are commonly produced as recombinant proteins in mammalian cell lines, due to their capacity of post-translational modifications, most notably glycosylation.

  4. 4. Effects of cold treatment on Arabidopsis thaliana : a study in the change of gene expression levels in some selected COR-genes and composition of important cell membrane lipids of A. thaliana

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Artur Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Arabidopsis thaliana; cold stress; membrane lipids; gene expression; quantification; PCR; extraction;

    Abstract : The effect of cold stress in Arabidopsis thaliana, mouse cress, was examined. The object was to investigate how gene expression and membrane lipid configuration was affected in seedlings when being treated with low temperature. READ MORE

  5. 5. Kloning, överuttryck och upprening av växtakvaporinet AtSIP1;1 i Escherichia coli

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Johan Zhu; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Heterologous overexpression of proteins signifies that the encoding gene of a protein in one organism is expressed in another host organism that normally does not have that gene in its genome. In basic biochemical research, this is an important method for studying various protein functions such as activity and interactions in biological processes, as well as obtaining sufficient amounts to determine protein structures.
