  1. 1. Metrics of making knowledge in a wilder Anthropocene : the roles and implications of produced knowledge in the governance of synthetic biology for biodiversity conservation

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Författare :Rixt Marloes van der Valk; [2020]
    Nyckelord :international biodiversity governance; Sociology of Knowledge Approach to Discourse SKAD ; measurementality; novel entities; sustainability science; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Under the growing influence of dominant discourses such as ecological modernisation and neo- liberalisation, proposed alternative conservation approaches focus more and more on efficiency. In the realm of biodiversity conservation, synthetic biology - the application of engineering to facilitate and accelerate the design or modification of genetic materials in living organisms – has emerged as an efficient approach.

  2. 2. The Principles of a Stable Community : 90 Years of Structured Integration in a Culturally Diverse New Town in Sardinia

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för kulturantropologi och etnologi

    Författare :Alexander James Maxia; [2020]
    Nyckelord :new town; community spirit; design; town planning; community; structuration theory; productivity; Arborea; Sardinia; Italy;

    Sammanfattning : An atom, a cell and a solar system have very little in common. My science teachers from high school will confirm that I am very far from being an expert on the matter but nontheless, I have studied these three systems in separate classes: chemistry, biology and astronomy.

  3. 3. Development of Next-Generation Optical Tweezers : The New Swiss Army Knife of Biophysical and Biomechanical Research

    Master-uppsats, Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Författare :Daniel Nilsson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :optical tweezers; optical fiber tweezers; optical fiber; optical trapping; manipulation; optical force; cell trapping; biophysical; physicochemical; biomechanical; research; next-generation; raman spectroscopy; holographic optical tweezers;

    Sammanfattning : In a time when microorganisms are controlling the world, research in biology is more relevant than ever and this requires some powerful instruments. Optical tweezers use a focused laser beam to manipulate and probe objects on the nano- and microscale. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Kloning, överuttryck och upprening av växtakvaporinet AtSIP1;1 i Escherichia coli

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Författare :Johan Zhu; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Heterologous overexpression of proteins signifies that the encoding gene of a protein in one organism is expressed in another host organism that normally does not have that gene in its genome. In basic biochemical research, this is an important method for studying various protein functions such as activity and interactions in biological processes, as well as obtaining sufficient amounts to determine protein structures.

  5. 5. Simulating Facilitation in a Spiking Neural Network

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Författare :Alexander Kuzmin; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Many insects are able to detect, isolate and track small targets that move quickly against a dynamic background. This ability is enabled by a group of neurons called small target motion detectors (STMD). These neurons, among other properties, have a type of short term memory called response facilitation. LÄS MER
