      Sissener, Nini Hedberg (The University of Bergen, 2009-09-25)
      Commonly used plant ingredients in salmon feed such as soybeans and maize are increasingly grown as genetically modified (GM) varieties. The question arises whether these are equally nutritious and safe for the fish as ...

      Kikuta, Hiroshi; Laplante, Mary; Navrátilová, Pavla; Komisarczuk, Anna Zofia; Engström, Pär G.; Fredman, David; Akalin, Altuna; Caccamo, Mario; Sealy, Ian; Howe, Kerstin; Ghislain, Julien; Pezeron, Guillaume; Mourrain, Philippe; Ellingsen, Staale; Oates, Andrew C.; Thisse, Christine; Thisse, Bernard; Foucher, Isabelle; Adolf, Birgit; Geling, Andrea; Lenhard, Boris; Becker, Thomas S. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2007-03-06)
      We report evidence for a mechanism for the maintenance of long-range conserved synteny across vertebrate genomes. We found the largest mammal-teleost conserved chromosomal segments to be spanned by highly conserved noncoding ...

    • Genomic regulatory blocks underlie extensive microsynteny conservation in insects 

      Engström, Pär G.; Sui, Shannan J. Ho; Drivenes, Øyvind; Becker, Thomas S.; Lenhard, Boris (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2007-11-07)
      Insect genomes contain larger blocks of conserved gene order (microsynteny) than would be expected under a random breakage model of chromosome evolution. We present evidence that microsynteny has been retained to keep ...

    • Globalisation and Union Opposition to Technological Change 

      Lommerud, Kjell Erik; Meland, Frode; Straume, Odd Rune (Stein Rokkan Centre for Social Studies, 2004-12)
      We find that trade unions have a rational incentive to oppose the adoption of labour-saving technology when labour demand is inelastic and unions care much for employment relative to wages. Trade liberalisation typically ...
