Sammanfattning : The genomes of living organisms are composed of a multitude of functional units, which interact with each other and their environment in a highly regulated fashion, to facilitate the expression of an enduring (and evolving) phenotype. Several approaches have emerged in the effort to identify these functional units and explore their activities. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Festuca ovina, sheep's fescue is a widely distributed perennial outbreeder that belongs to the grass family Poaceae and is very common in the northern temperate zone. The genus Festuca s.l. is partitioned into fine-leaved fescues to which F. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Phylogeneticists have studied the evolution of life from single celled organisms to the astonishing biodiversity around us for a long time now. The relationship between species is often expressed as a binary tree - the tree of life. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The genus Rickettsia belongs to the α-proteobacteria and consists of obligate intracellular bacteria, which often are pathogenic for humans. All Rickettsia have small genomes, highly adapted to an intracellular lifestyle. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Estimating substitution frequencies at sites that influence (Ka) and do not influence (Ks) the amino acid sequence is important for understanding the dynamics of molecular sequence evolution and the selective pressures that have shaped genetic variation. The aim of this work was to gain a deeper understanding of the driving forces of substitution frequency variation in human pathogens. LÄS MER
