• #### Chitin synthesis in the salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis ﻿

(Doctoral thesis, 2021-06-18)
The salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis is a parasitic copepod that lives and feeds on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salmar). At present, this parasite is the number one threat to the Norwegian aquaculture. The density of salmons ...
• #### Archaeological bird remains from Norway as a means to identify long-term patterns in a Northern European avifauna ﻿

(Doctoral thesis, 2021-06-18)
Birds are currently facing a biodiversity crisis. Seabirds, birds in agricultural landscapes, and montane birds are particularly vulnerable to extinction. Whilst their modern distributions are well studied, how past events ...
• #### Chitin synthases are critical for reproduction, molting, and digestion in the salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021-01-13)
Chitin synthase (CHS) is a large transmembrane enzyme that polymerizes Uridine diphosphate N-acetylglucosamine into chitin. The genomes of insects often encode two chitin synthases, CHS1 and CHS2. Their functional roles ...
• #### A Polynomial Kernel for Line Graph Deletion ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
The line graph of a graph G is the graph L(G) whose vertex set is the edge set of G and there is an edge between e,f ∈ E(G) if e and f share an endpoint in G. A graph is called line graph if it is a line graph of some ...
• #### The CP-symmetries of the 2HDM ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
We discuss the three different classes of CP-symmetries that can be realized in a two-Higgs-doublet model, CP1, CP2 and CP3. We express conditions for realizing these symmetries in terms of masses and couplings of the ...
• #### Reconstructing ribosomal genes from large scale total RNA meta-transcriptomic data ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-13)
Motivation Technological advances in meta-transcriptomics have enabled a deeper understanding of the structure and function of microbial communities. ‘Total RNA’ meta-transcriptomics, sequencing of total reverse transcribed ...
• #### Transversals of longest paths ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-03)
Let lpt(G) be the minimum cardinality of a transversal of longest paths in G, that is, a set of vertices that intersects all longest paths in a graph G. There are several results in the literature bounding the value of ...
• #### Mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet from 1992 to 2018 ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-10)
The Greenland Ice Sheet has been a major contributor to global sea-level rise in recent decades1,2, and it is expected to continue to be so3. Although increases in glacier flow4,5,6 and surface melting7,8,9 have been driven ...
• #### Image processing, segmentation, and measurements of hydrate phase transition on pore-scale ﻿

(Master thesis, 2021-04-26)
• #### Energetic electron precipitation of pulsating aurorae and their mesospheric effects ﻿

(Doctoral thesis, 2021-06-17)
Pulsating aurorae (PsAs) are low-intensity diffuse type aurora, which switches on and off with a quasi-periodic oscillation period from a few seconds to ~ 10 seconds. They are predominantly observed after midnight magnetic ...
• #### Effect of tag weight on vertical behavior of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts: an overlooked tag effect? ﻿

(Master thesis, 2021-06-01)
• #### Spin dynamics in photon ionization processes in hydrogenic atoms ﻿

(Master thesis, 2021-05-11)
Spin effects in hydrogenic atoms to relativistic order 1/c^2 have been considered and modeled in three different gauges, two of which have been used extensively in the dipole approximation to calculate cross sections in ...
• #### Measurements of inclusive jet spectra in pp and central Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN=5.02TeV ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
This article reports measurements of the p T -differential inclusive jet cross section in p p collisions at √ s = 5.02 TeV and the p T -differential inclusive jet yield in Pb-Pb 0–10% central collisions at √ s N N = 5.02 ...
• #### Caligus elongatus and other sea lice of the genus Caligus as parasites of farmed salmonids: A review ﻿

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
This review was prompted by reports of unusually large numbers of sea lice tentatively identified as Caligus elongatus infesting farmed salmon in northern Norway. Following a brief introduction to the sea lice problem in ...
• #### Ontogenetic movements of cod in Arctic fjords and the Barents Sea as revealed by otolith microchemistry ﻿
