  1. 1. Development of a novel quantitative PCR analysis method for HIV-1

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Anna-Malin Hallberg; [2021]
    Keywords : HIV; PCR; primers; probes; virus; detection; blood plasma; pathogen; biological pharmaceutical; protein-based pharmaceutical; genotype; subtype; RT qPCR; extraction; TaqMa; RNA virus; cross-dimer; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Biology and Life Sciences; Technology and Engineering; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Biological pharmaceuticals are the answer to many severe diseases of today’s society. Some of these are protein-based drugs and can be produced from human blood plasma. In order to guarantee the safety of patients, absence of any pathogens needs to be ensured. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of a Filifactor Alocis genotype and its effect on pathological progress in periodontitis

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Tandläkarutbildning; Umeå universitet/Tandläkarutbildning

    Author : Jessica Radu; Kati Heinämäki; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Background: Filifactor alocis is a gram positive, obligate anaerobic rod bacterium that has shown correlation to pathogenic events that may be linked to periodontitis. Previous studies have proved the presence of so-called “rtx” toxins in F. alocis that are similar to the leukotoxin of A. actinomycetemcomitans. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neural networks for imputation of missing genotype data : An alternative to the classical statistical methods in bioinformatics

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Alfred Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : genetics; imputation; bioinformatics; neural networks; GWAS;

    Abstract : In this project, two different machine learning models were tested in an attempt at imputing missing genotype data from patients on two different panels. As the integrity of the patients had to be protected, initial training was done on data simulated from the 1000 Genomes Project. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development and validation of a novel quantitative PCR analysis method for HIV-1

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Josefine Sundgren; [2020]
    Keywords : HIV-1; qPCR; Octapharma; Taqman; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The major problem when developing primers and probe sets for detection of HIV-1 is its high genetic variability and strong ability to mutate. HIV-1 is divided into four groups, M, N, O, P based on genetic similarities, and there are more than 70 different circulating recombinant forms. READ MORE
