Sammanfattning : Microarray technology is a promising approach for the simultaneous analysis of multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), which are the most abundant form of genetic variation. In this thesis enzyme-assisted microarray-based methods were developed to improve the accuracy and genotype discrimination power of the current methods for SNP genotyping. LÄS MER
2. Genome-Wide Studies of Transcriptional Regulation in Human Liver Cells by High-throughput Sequencing
Sammanfattning : The human genome contains slightly more than 20 000 genes that are expressed in a tissue specific manner. Transcription factors play a key role in gene regulation. By mapping the transcription factor binding sites genome-wide we can understand their role in different biological processes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The aurochs Bos primigenius, extinct since 1627, was the wild progenitor of cattle. It is believed that all European cattle originate from one domestication event in the Near East 10 000 years ago. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The Wilms’ tumor gene 1 (WT1) was first reported as a tumor suppressor gene in Wilms’ tumor. However, later studies have shown the oncogenic properties of WT1 in a variety of tumors. It was recently proposed that WT1 was a chameleon gene, due to its dual functions in tumorigenesis. LÄS MER
5. Human candidate polymorphisms and malaria susceptibility in sympatric ethnic groups, The Fulani and The Dogon of Mali
Sammanfattning : In malaria endemic regions, resistance to malaria constitutes a critical selective pressureon genetic polymorphisms that regulate immune defense and inflammatory pathways.Differences in malaria susceptibility between sympatric ethnic groups have been described inMali. LÄS MER
