  1. 1. Isolation and genomic characterization of three PHA degrading bacteria from the marine environment

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (master); Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (CI)

    Author : Giulia Elli; [2019]
    Keywords : PHA; degradation of PHA; marine bacteria; sulphate reducing bacteria; SRB; SRM; biotechnology; bioteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The broader goal of this project was to investigate what kind of effects the accumulation of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) in the marine environment might have on the microbial world. Bacteria were isolated from biofilms fouling PHA pellets placed in the sediment-water interface; the goal was to isolate PHA degraders that were also sulphate reducers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Construction and Characterization of 3rd Generation Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strains for PHB production form Xylose

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

    Author : Pálína Haraldsdóttir; [2018]
    Keywords : Applied microbiology; Teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Poly-3-D-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) is a biopolymer naturally produced by a range of bacterial species. PHB production both from glucose and xylose has also been enabled by engineering the robust baker’s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, however yields remain low. In the present study, additional modifications were carried out in S. READ MORE

    Abstract : Atopisk dermatit hos hund (CAD), är en komplex sjukdom som är brett utspridd hos olika hundraser. Sjukdomen har visats bero på flertalet genetiska mutationer och påverkan från den omgivande miljön. Flera av de genetiska riskfaktorerna för utvecklandet utav CAD påverkar hudbarriären, vilken är en viktig komponent i sjukdomen. READ MORE
