The research presented in this thesis initially sought to examine if NGS would be feasible in the field of respiratory virus diagnostics. The aim was to apply NGS to clinical specimens in parallel with the current diagnostic RT-PCR assays employed by the West of Scotland Specialist Virology Centre (WoSSVC) to.
This PhD thesis focuses on studying this microbial community during wine fermentation with the use of metagenomics. In general, metagenomics is the study of genetic material recovered directly from environmental samples. The decreasing costs in sequencing, the process of determining the sequence of an organism's genome, make it possible to use metagenomics to characterise the microbial.
The thesis was defended on March 29, 2019, and received the qualification of Excellent. Culture-independent approaches to microbiomes are revolutionizing biology. Whether in a clinical or in an environmental sample, metagenomics can reveal which microorganisms exist and what they actually do. Metagenomics is a powerful tool for the study of.
Moreover, metagenomics studies extended scientists’ knowledge about the human microbiota and its implications in numerous human diseases. Since the 16S rRNA gene sequencing was shown to be an effective method to investigate microbial communities, recently our laboratory adopted this molecular approach to characterize the interactions between bacteria and host. Therefore, the present PhD work.

PhD thesis: Biogas Development of computational methods for the analysis of metagenome and metatranscriptome data (Dr. Martha Zakrzewski) The fields of metagenomics and metatranscriptomics have evolved as helpful disciplines to unlock the taxonomic composition and functional diversity of heterogeneous microbial communities in their natural habitats.
Geoscience. Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Thesis-based program. Start your application. Program overview Formed in 1963, the Department of Geoscience - Canada's largest - is a vibrant cornerstone of the University of Calgary. The program is a wellspring of Canada's geoscience research and industry professionals, with close ties to the resource industry that has established Alberta's reputation.
PhD Topics in Microbiology. PhD in Microbiology focuses on preparing students to opt for dental, medical, and the health-professional firms since many Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies employ PhD microbiology candidates. Many scholars today are pursuing PhD in microbiology to carry an independent research a significant contribution to the research canon of the discipline. All such.
Since most microbes fail to grow in the laboratory as pure cultures, metagenomics and NGS have recently revolutionized the field of microbiology by giving the first insights into this so-called “microbial dark matter”. In this dissertation, the reader takes a dive into the rich biodiversity of the hypersaline soda lakes located in south-western Siberia (Russia). A soda lake is a special.
The in-situ sampling and subsequent analysis of whole community DNA (metagenomics) or mRNA (metatranscriptomics) provide insights into the taxonomy and metabolism of microbial communities, and into the complex relationships with their environment. In close collaboration with UEA's School of Environmental Sciences, we have focused on the analysis of data from eukaryotic phytoplankton from.
Doctoral thesis: Keywords: antibiotic resistance metagenomics bioinformatics next generation sequencing resistance selection: Abstract: Antibiotic resistance accounts for hundreds of thousands of deaths annually, and its projected increase has made the WHO recognize it as a major global health threat. In the last decade, evidence has mounted.
