Regulatory mechanisms of non-coding RNAs during zebrafish embryogenesis
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-03)
For many years, RNAs were thought to be intermediate products between DNA and protein. The discovery of RNA interference (RNAi), a regulatory process that uses small non-coding RNAs to regulate gene expression at the ...
Detecting Periodic Elements in Higher Topological Hochschild Homology
(The University of Bergen, 2013-08-20)
On the evolution of the North Atlantic -from continental collapse to oceanic accretion
(The University of Bergen, 2013-10-23)
The North Atlantic between Iceland and Svalbard and surrounding continental areas represent an ideal laboratory for studying plate tectonic processes, due to the presence of well exposed continent-continent collision ...
Computer-aided proofs and algorithms in analysis
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-14)
The computational power has increased dramatically since the appearance of the first computers, making them a vital tool in the analysis of dynamical systems. We present further applications of those two basic ideas, ...
Chemical Properties of Alkenes and Alkynes from Carbon 1s Photoelectron Spectroscopy and Theory
(The University of Bergen, 2013-02-27)
The field of electron spectroscopy has evolved extensively the last couple of decades. On one hand, the technology at the synchrotron radiation facilities and of electron analyzers has improved, providing experimental ...
Sketch-based Storytelling for Cognitive Problem Solving: Externalization, Evaluation, and Communication in Geology
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-25)
PROBLEM solving is an important part of all engineering and scientific activities. It is present, for instance, when experts want to develop more fuel-efficient cars or when they are searching for oil and gas in the ...
Characteristics of Pyrosequencing Data – Analysis, Methods, and Tools
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-17)
The introduction of this thesis provides background knowledge on the 454 sequencing technology and a detailed review of the most relevant sequencing artifacts. Chapter 1 puts the 454 sequencing technology into a historical ...
Impact of geological heterogeneity on CO2 sequestration: from outcrop to simulator
(The University of Bergen, 2013-12-16)
Increased anthropogenic emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the Earth’s atmosphere since the industrial revolution has enhanced the greenhouse effect and contributed to global climate change. Controlling atmospheric ...
Polarization-independent CP-violation in SUSY theories
(The University of Bergen, 2013-02-01)
Supersymmetry (SUSY) is a beautiful mathematical concept which binds internal symmetries of a quantum field theory with global symmetries of the space-time. Applications of this approach may stretch from unsolved puzzles ...
