  2. 2. The next-generation of aquatic effect-based monitoring? : A critical review about the application,challenges and barriers with omics in field

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för biologi och miljö (BOM)

    Author : Sara Sahlin; [2019]
    Keywords : Omics; transcriptomics; proteomics; metabolomics; water monitoring; effect-based;

    Abstract : Traditional water monitoring encounter limitations due to the large number of contaminants present in our waters possible giving raise to mixture effects. This thesis aimed to investigate how the emerging omics approaches (transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics) can be used as an effect-based monitoring approach to assess and predict adverse effects in the freshwater environment.

  5. 5. Spatial Frequency-Based Objective Function for Optimization of Dose Heterogeneity in Grid Therapy

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Fysikum

    Author : Fredén Emil; [2019]
    Keywords : Radiotherapy; Dose Optimization; Objective function; Dose Heterogeneity; Proton Grid Therapy; Spatially Fractionated Radiotherapy; SFRT;

    Abstract : In this project we introduced a spatial frequency-based objective function for optimization of dose distributions used in spatially fractionated radiotherapy (also known as grid therapy). Several studies indicate that tissues can tolerate larger mean doses of radiation if the dose is delivered heterogeneously or to a partial volume of the organ. READ MORE
