  1. 1. Non-coding RNAs as therapeutic agents : The future of therapy

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Hederoth Gustaf; Lyngå Olivia; Rudqvist Olivia; Jeppsson Rebecka; Hogolof Saida; Svanberg Sara; Kauppinen Veera; [2022]
    Keywords : Non-coding RNA; Oligonucleotide therapeutics;

    Abstract : Non-coding RNA (ncRNA) therapeutics are based on short oligonucleotides, both naturally occurring and artificial, which target RNA in a site-specific way to modulate gene expression. As of today, 12 synthetically produced ncRNA-based drugs are available on the market in the US and Europe, and there is a possibility of more to be approved in the near future. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Identification of Lactobacillus species in honey using 16S rRNA gene sequencing

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Robherta Ferreira de Vilcinskas; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Honey is a natural product composed of numeral substances and microorganisms. Although honey presents physicochemical properties that confer antimicrobial characteristics, certain microorganisms are still able to survive and multiply in honey. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hello P. pastoris! : The cultivatin and expression of proteins in the yeast Pichia pastoris

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Håkansson Anja; Dalén Therese; Gröblacher Josefine; Göransson William; Jaksties Jonathan; Ortstad Nathalie; Lenkeit Gesser Pauline; [2022]
    Keywords : Affibody AB; Pichia pastoris; pAOX1; pAOX2; pFLD1; pGAP; cultivation; fermentation; glycosylation;

    Abstract : Producing pharmaceuticals in Escherichia coli inevitably comes with an extensive purification process. This is because many of the native proteins of E. coli are immunogenic to humans, especially the heat and pH resistant endotoxins located in the membrane of E. coli. READ MORE

  5. 5. Review and Analysis of single-cell RNA sequencing cell-type identification and annotation tools

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

    Author : Corentin Raoux; [2021]
    Keywords : Single-cell RNA sequencing; Automatic cell types annotation; Classification; Benchmark; Evaluation; Encells-RNA-sekvensering; Automatisk annotering av celltyper; Klassificering; Riktmärke; Värdering;

    Abstract : Single-cell RNA-sequencing makes possible to study the gene expression at the level of individual cells. However, one of the main challenges of the single-cell RNA-sequencing analysis today, is the identification and annotation of cell types. READ MORE
