    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular genetics; DNA copy number changes; chromosome 22; genomic microarray; array-CGH; schwannoma; neurofibromatosis type 2; ovarian carcinoma; breast cancer; Wilms tumor; Genetik; Genetics; Genetik;

    Sammanfattning : The array-based form of comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) is a new methodology that has shown to be of significant importance. This thesis focuses on the development of array-CGH with the aim to define candidate regions/genes on chromosome 22 in a wide spectrum of cancer-related conditions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Development and Application of Microarray-Based Comparative Genomic Hybridization : Analysis of Neurofibromatosis Type-2, Schwannomatosis and Related Tumors

    Författare :Patrick Buckley; Jan Dumanski; Olivier Delattre; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Genomic microarray; Array-CGH; DNA copy number variation; Neurofibromatosis type-2; Schwannomatosis; Schwannoma; Meningioma; NF2; Chromosome 22; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Neurofibromatosis type-2 (NF2) is an autosomal dominant disorder with the clinical hallmark of bilateral eighth cranial nerve schwannomas. However, the diagnostic criterion is complicated by the presence of a variable phenotype, with the severe form presenting with additional tumors such as peripheral schwannoma, meningioma and ependymoma.

  3. 3. Linguistic Challenges in Science Education : A Classroom Study of Teachers’ and Students’ use of Central Concepts in Genetics

    Författare :Karin Thörne; Niklas Gericke; Anders Arnqvist; Anat Yarden; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Classroom study; Classroom talk; Genetics education; Genetics concepts; Scientific language; Secondary school; Systemic Functional Linguistics; Thematic pattern analysis; Biology; Biologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examines linguistic aspects of genetics education and is based on the view that language is an essential dimension of teaching and learning. Its objective is to clarify how teachers and students use genetics concepts in real teaching situations. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Analysis of Genetic Alterations in Patients Affected with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 and its Associated Tumors

    Författare :Caisa Marie Hansson; Jan P. Dumanski; Juha Kere; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Neurofibromatosis type 2; schwannoma; schwannomatosis; meningioma; array-CGH; chromosome 22; DNA copy number variation; methylation; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is an autosomal dominant disorder with the clinical hallmark of bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VS). Patients affected by a severe NF2 phenotype also presents with peripheral schwannomas, meningiomas and ependymomas. The closely related disorder schwannomatosis also displays multiple schwannomas, but never VS. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Microarray-Based Comparative Genomic Hybridization in Neurofibromatoses and DiGeorge Syndrome

    Författare :Kiran K. Mantripragada; Jan P. Dumanski; Peter Lichter; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) has emerged as a versatile platform with a wide range of applications in molecular genetics. This thesis focuses on the development of array-CGH with a specific aim to approach disease-related questions through improved strategies in array construction and enhanced resolution of analysis.
