  1. 1. Mapping Genes Affecting Phenotypic Traits in Chicken

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Susanne Kerje; Leif Andersson; Martien Groenen; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; chicken; Quantitative Trait Loci; growth; egg production; epistasis; plumage colour; Extended black; MC1R; Dominant white; PMEL17; Genetik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of gene mapping is to understand the underlying genetics of simple and complex traits like plumage colour and growth. This thesis is based on a cross between the wild ancestor of the modern chicken, the red junglefowl, and a White Leghorn line selected for high egg mass. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Genetic Studies of Pigmentation in Chicken

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Ulrika Gunnarsson; Leif Andersson; Göran Andersson; Susanne Kerje; William J. Pavan; [2009]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Domestic animals have been selected by humans for thousands of years, which have drastically altered their genetic constitution and phenotypes. In this thesis, several of the most important genes causing pigmentation differences between the wild red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) and domestic chickens have been identified. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Factors Influencing Evolution to Antimalarial Drug Resistance in Plasmodium falciparum in Sudan and The Gambia

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Amany Kheir; Göte Swedberg; Susanne Kerje; Hamza Babiker; Staffan Svärd; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cross-mating; fitness; microsatellite haplotypes; mosquito infectivity; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Infektionssjukdomar; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Drug resistance is a major obstacle to management and control of malaria and currently progressing at a rapid rate across Africa. This thesis has examined factors influencing evolution of resistant P. falciparum at two sites in Africa, including parasite migration, cross mating and fitness cost of resistance. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Genetic Characterization of Chicken Models for Autoimmune Disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Anna-Stina Sahlqvist; Olov Ekwall; Olle Kämpe; Leif Andersson; Susanne Kerje; Holger Luthman; [2012]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Autoimmune disease; Hashimoto’s thyroiditis; systemic sclerosis; comparative genomics; linkage analysis; OS chickens; spontaneous autoimmune thyroiditis; UCD-200 chickens.; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Autoimmune diseases are endemic, but the disease mechanisms are poorly understood. A way to better understand these are to find disease-regulating genes. However, this is difficult as the diseases are complex, with several genes as well as environmental factors influencing the development of disease. LÄS MER
