  1. 1. Multi-environment Screening of Timothy (Phleum pratense) Breeding Material for Better Forage Yield in Sweden.

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Ibrahim Issa; [2022]
    Keywords : Phleum pratense; Multi-Environment; Forage yield; Sweden; Genotype-by-environment interaction Swedish;

    Abstract : Timothy (Phleum pratense) is one of the most widely used forage crops in hay and pasture grass mixtures in Nordic countries; it’s also used in areas where it is one of the top forage crops harvested high yield, especially in boreal climates. There hasn’t been any large-scale breeding of Timothy to develop varieties that are adapted for Swedish climate and standards, which is surprising given that Timothy is the main forage crop used in Sweden.

  2. 2. Iterative full-genome phasing and imputation using neural networks

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Människans evolution

    Author : Lotta Rydin; [2022]
    Keywords : Machine learning; Genotype data; U-Net; Convolutional neural networks;

    Abstract : In this project, a model based on a convolutional neural network have been developed with the aim of imputing missing genotype data. This model was based on an already existing autoencoder that was modified into a U-Net structure. The network was trained and used iteratively with the intention that the result would improve in each iteration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evolutionary Properties of Neural Networks: Exploration of Robustness and Evolvability in the Genotype-Phenotype Map

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik - Genomgår omorganisation

    Author : Daesung Cho; [2022]
    Keywords : robustness; evolvability; genotype-phenotype map; canalization; Bayesian inference; simulation-based inference; information theory; neural networks; pyloric rhythm; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Evolution is a fundamental and crucial part of life that hinges on two central properties: robustness and evolvability. Robustness is required to maintain essential traits despite mutations while evolvability produces novel traits that might prove beneficial in survival. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetiska faktorer som styr hornbildning hos kor

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Author : Mikaela Nordström; [2022]
    Keywords : kor; nötkreatur; hornbildning; kullig; hornlös; scurs; mjölkkor; genetiskt samband; avhorning; avel;

    Abstract : Denna litteraturstudie sammanställer information om vilka genetiska faktorer som styr hornbildning hos kor samt hur nedärvningsprocessen för horn, scurs och kullighet fungerar. Behornade kor medför problem som högre skaderisk, ökade veterinärkostnader och aggressiva beteenden och därför avhornas kor i animalieproduktion rutinmässigt. READ MORE

  5. 5. Baking quality of winter wheat : the effect of variety, cultivation site and nitrogen supply

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Linnéa Gustafsson; [2022]
    Keywords : bread; baking quality; winter wheat; variety; cultivation site; nitrogen supply; genotype; environment;

    Abstract : Wheat is the most important cereal crop for breadmaking. Different wheat varieties tend to yield varying bread quality, which is affected both by genotype and environmental factors. The present study aims to investigate the genetic and environmental effect on bread quality. READ MORE
