    Sammanfattning : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic microbes found in oxygen limited environments such as the intestine of animals were they may cause severe disease. Among them, the prominent human parasite Giardia intestinalis non-invasively colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals where it induces the gastrointestinal disease giardiasis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Culture-independent methods and high-throughput sequencing applied to evolutionary microbial genomics

    Författare :Anders E. Lind; Thijs JG Ettema; Purificación López-García; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Single cell genomics; metagenomics; amplicon; archaea; haloarchaea; endosymbiosis; ciliate; hydrogenosome; tree reconciliation;

    Sammanfattning : Culture-independent methods allow us to better understand the diversity of microorganisms on earth. By omitting the culturing step, we can gain access to species previously out of our reach.To better capture and understand the diversity of microorganisms, we have developed an alternative to 16S amplicon sequencing.

  3. 3. Comparative Cell Biology in Diplomonads

    Författare :Elin Einarsson; Staffan Svärd; Scott Dawson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Giardia intestinalis; Spironucleus salmonicida; intestinal parasite; hydrogenosome; encystation; gene regulation; transfection; diplomonad; antigenic variation; annexin;

    Sammanfattning : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic flagellates found in microaerophilic and anaerobic environments. The most studied diplomonad is the intestinal parasite Giardia intestinalis, which infects a variety of mammals and cause diarrheal disease. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Comparative Genomics in Diplomonads : Lifestyle Variations Revealed at Genetic Level

    Författare :Feifei Xu; Jan O. Andersson; Staffan G. Svärd; Matt Berriman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; comparative genomics; Giardia intestinalis; Spironucleus salmonicida; Trepomonas; diplomonad; intestinal parasite; free-living; sexual recombination; hydrogenosome; horizontal gene transfer; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Sammanfattning : As sequencing technologies advance genome studies are becoming a basic tool for studying an organism, and with more genomes available comparative genomics is maturing into a powerful tool for biological research. This thesis demonstrates the strength of a comparative genomics approach on a group of understudied eukaryotes, the diplomonads. LÄS MER
