  1. 1. Exploration of bacteria associated with Anopheles mosquitoes around the world : For the prevention of transmission of malaria

    Författare :Louise K. J. Nilsson; Olle Terenius; Staffan Svärd; Sebastian Håkansson; Michael Strand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; microbiota; microbiome; vector-borne disease; 16S rRNA gene; amplicon sequencing; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Sammanfattning : Every year, hundreds of thousands of people die from malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by parasites, which are spread by female vector mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. Current control measures against malaria are based on drugs against the parasites and vector control using insecticides. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Impact of Drinking Water Treatment and Pipe Biofilms on Bacterial Dynamics in the Distribution System

    Författare :Kristjan Pullerits; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drinking water treatment; Drinking water treatment plant; UV; Slow sand filter; Ultrafiltration; Drinking water distribution system; Biofilm; Biostability; Nitrification; Bacterial communities; Flow cytometry; Next-generation sequencing; 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis addresses drinking water quality and microbiology in full-scale drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs). It examines how UV irradiation and slow sand filters (SSFs) alter the water bacteriome, and how the biofilm in the DWDS affects the drinking water quality. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Exploration of microbial diversity and evolution through cultivation independent phylogenomics

    Författare :Joran Martijn; Thijs J.G. Ettema; Andrew Roger; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cultivation independent genomics; metagenomics; single-cell genomics; metagenomic binning; phylogenetics; phylogenomics; phylogenetic artefacts; comparative genomics; gene tree-species tree reconciliation; rRNA amplicon sequencing; Tara Oceans; origin of mitochondria; Alphaproteobacteria; Rickettsiales; Haloarchaea; endosymbiosis; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Sammanfattning : Our understanding of microbial evolution is largely dependent on available genomic data of diverse organisms. Yet, genome-sequencing efforts have mostly ignored the diverse uncultivable majority in favor of cultivable and sociologically relevant organisms. LÄS MER

  4. 4. When bioelectrochemical systems meet extremophiles, possibilities and challenges

    Författare :Gaofeng Ni; Mark Dopson; Bert Hamelers; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acidophiles; psychrophiles; haloalkaliphiles; bioelectrochemical systems; microbial sulfur metabolism; 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing; metagenomics; metatranscriptomics; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Sammanfattning : Extremophiles are microorganisms live and thrive in extreme environments that are harsh and hostile to most forms of life on earth (e.g. low pH, low temperature, high pH and high salinity). They have developed strategies to obtain nutrients and conserve energy to sustain life under these adverse conditions. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Microbial biofilm communities associated with degradation of sprayed concrete in subsea tunnels

    Författare :Sabina Karacic; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metagenomics.; concrete; surface structure; marine environment; steel fibers; microbially induced deterioration; amplicon sequencing; biofilm; subsea tunnels;

    Sammanfattning : Deterioration of concrete leads to reduced structural strength implying high societal challenge with huge economic impact. In the Oslofjord subsea tunnel, complex microbial biofilm activity together with abiotic attack from saline groundwater are responsible for concrete matrix degradation and steel fiber corrosion.
