  1. 1. Chicken domestication : Effects of tameness on brain gene expression and DNA methylation

    Författare :Johan Bélteky; Per Jensen; Anna Kukekova; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Domestication greatly increases phenotypic variation in a short time span, with selection for a single phenotype and a plethora of associated phenotypic changes as an outcome of the process. The domestication process influences the underlying genomic architecture of a species, and the success and speed of the process is likely influenced by it. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Student Sustainability Consciousness : Investigating Effects of Education for Sustainable Development in Sweden and Beyond

    Författare :Daniel Olsson; Niklas Gericke; Jelle Boeve-de Pauw; John Piccolo; Jan Činčera; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Education for sustainable development; effects; environmental and sustainability education; holism and pluralism; students; sustainability consciousness; Biology; Biologi;

    Sammanfattning : Environmental and sustainability education has been an important part of education worldwide for many years, aiming to foster pro-environmental behavior among young people. Education for sustainable development (ESD) and its teaching components holism (the approach to the content) and pluralism (the approach to teaching) has been launched as the educational approach to support this aim by empowering young people with action competence for a sustainable future.

    Sammanfattning : Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a new technology that has revolutionized the way we study living organisms. Where previously only a few genes could be studied at a time through targeted direct probing, NGS offers the possibility to perform measurements for a whole genome at once. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Cellular effects after exposure to mixed beams of ionizing radiation

    Författare :Elina Staaf; Andrzej Wojcik; Siamak Haghdoost; Eva Forssell-Aronsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ionizing radiation; high LET; low LET; mixed beams; combined exposure; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Mixed beams of ionizing radiation in our environment originate from space, the bedrock and our own houses. Radiotherapy patients treated with boron neutron capture therapy or with high energy photons are also exposed to mixed beams of gamma radiation and neutrons. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Domestication Effects on the Stress Response in Chickens : Genetics, Physiology, and Behaviour

    Författare :Amir Fallahshahroudi; Per Jensen; Frank Albert; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Animal domestication, the process where animals become adapted to living in proximity to humans, is associated with the alteration of multiple traits, including decreased fearfulness and stress response. With an estimated population of 50 billion, the domesticated chicken is the most populous avian species in the world. LÄS MER
