    Sammanfattning : The neuropeptide Y (NPY) system consists of 3-4 peptides and 4-7 receptors in vertebrates. It has powerful effects on appetite regulation and is involved in many other biological processes including blood pressure regulation, bone formation and anxiety. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Archaeological Genetics - Approaching Human History through DNA Analysis

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Evangelia Daskalaki; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ancient DNA; pyrosequencing; molecular genetics; aDNA; neolithization; evolutionary genetics; mtDNA; viking age; archaeological genetics; genetik; evolutionsgenetik; naturvetenskap; neolitisering; vikingatid; arkeologisk genetik; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Sammanfattning : There are a variety of archaeological questions, which are difficult to assess by traditional archaeological methods. Similarly, there are genetic and population genetic questions about human evolution and migration that are difficult to assess by studying modern day genetic variation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Non-genetic processes in development and heredity

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Willian T. A. F. Silva; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Sammanfattning : There is a swiftly increasing amount of empirical evidence that non-genetic factors, such as DNA methylation and small RNAs, play an important role not only in development but also in heredity and, therefore, evolutionary dynamics. One of the most interesting aspects of non-genetic processes is their responsiveness to environmental conditions, which has been shown to affect not only the phenotype and fitness of the individuals directly exposed to the stimulus, but also their offspring even when the stimulus is no longer present, indicating that the transmission of non-genetic factors across generations might work analogously to immunization against recurring conditions.

  4. 4. Meiotic Recombination in Human and Dog Targets, Consequences and Implications for Genome Evolution

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jonas Berglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; recombination; biased gene conversion; CpG island; copy number variation; substitutions; methylation; Bioinformatik; Bioinformatics; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Understanding the mechanism of recombination has important implications for genome evolution and genomic variability. The work presented in this thesis studies the properties of recombination by investigating the effects it has on genome evolution in humans and dogs. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the genomic study of symbionts of two different groups of hymenopterans: bees and ants. Both groups of insects have major ecological impact, and investigating their microbiomes increases our understanding of their health, diversity and evolution. LÄS MER
