  2. 2. Whole-Genome Sequencing of two Swedish Individuals on PromethION

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i bioinformatik

    Author : Nazeefa Fatima; [2019]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Background: Chromosomes can undergo various changes such as deletions, inversions, insertions, and/or translocations resulting in structural variation differences between individuals. Structural variants are a common source of variability in the human genome and have been known to be associated with common diseases such as autism, cancer, and rare human diseases [1, 2]. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental validation of a periodic heat transfer CFD model of a vertical shell and tube heat exchanger

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Patrik Bengtsson; Dilip Kumar Vellore Saikumar; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Flow obstructions are used as a passive design element in heat exchangers to enhance heattransfer. Further, a change in flow structure can also have a positive effect on the heat transfer. Avertical shell and tube heat exchanger, used to recover heat in the greywater stream, isinvestigated in this study. READ MORE

  4. 4. Multi-Criteria GIS modelling for optimal alignment of roadway by-passes in the Tlokweng Planning Area, Botswana

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap
