  1. 1. Extracting Adverse Drug Reactions from Product Labels using Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing

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

    Author : Shachi Bista; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Pharamacovigilance relates to activities involving drug safety monitoring in the post-marketing phase of the drug development life-cycle. Despite rigorous trials and experiments that drugs undergo before they are available in the market, they can still cause previously unobserved side-effects (also known as adverse events) due to drug–drug interaction, genetic, physiological or demographic reasons.

  2. 2. A zebrafish-based system to study the impact of environmental factors in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

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

    Author : Mikaela Westling; [2020]
    Keywords : IBD; non-coding regions; zebrafish; in vivo; transgenic dual reporters; enhancer activity; polyfluoroalkyl substances; dietary sensors;

    Abstract : Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a chronic disorder that affects millions of peopleworldwide. Although the etiology behind the disease is yet unknown, current theoriespropose a complex interplay between genetic susceptibility, exposure to environmentalfactors and exacerbated immune responses.

  3. 3. Bison bonasus : återuppbyggnaden av en nästan utrotad art

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Environment and Health

    Author : Morgan Daleryd Sjöblom; [2019]
    Keywords : visent; europeisk bison; Bison bonasus; genetik; återintroduktion;

    Abstract : Visent eller den europeiska bison är en art som efter första världskriget hade dött ut i det vilda på grund av jakt. Endast 54 djur från arten återstod i fångenskap och det är från dessa anfäder som dagens bestånd av både vilda och visenter i fångenskap härstammar. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigation of the role of insulin receptor genes in wing polyphenism using gene knockdown and differential gene expression analysis in the non-model organism Gerris buenoi

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för ekologi och genetik

    Author : Sofia Iggström; [2019]
    Keywords : Phenotypic plasticity; RNAi; RT-qPCR; wing polyphenism; water striders;

    Abstract : Wing polyphenism is a type of phenotypic plasticity present in several insect species whereby a genotype have the ability to develop alternative wing morphs when exposed to different environmental cues. One organism demonstrating a clear case of wing polyphenism is the water strider species, Gerris buenoi, which develop long- or short wings depending on exposure to different photoperiods (the time the organism is exposed to light during a 24 h period).

  5. 5. Nanoparticles’ effect in an in vitro whole blood model

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för immunologi, genetik och patologi

    Author : Layal Korkis; [2019]
    Keywords : Silica; Titanium dioxide; Palladium; complement system; contact system.;

    Abstract : Nanoparticles have been used in industry and in medicine due to their properties which give them beneficial uses. This usage of the nanoparticles has risen the question about how harmful they are to the human body, the connection between the exposure to nanoparticles, and many diseases that occur in the body.
