    Ovarian carcinoma (OC), primary peritoneal carcinoma (PPC) and malignant mesothelioma (MM) are all highly aggressive tumors that share common morphological features in addition to being histogenetically related. It is of ...
  • Ellefsen, Stian (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2008)
    Crucian carp, Carassius carassius, survives days to months without oxygen (anoxia). Still, during anoxia, it needs to keep the energy expenditure low, particularly in the brain, which has a high rate of ATP use mainly ...

    Absolute tumor DNA copy numbers can currently be achieved only on a single gene basis by using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). We present GeneCount, a method for genome-wide calculation of absolute copy numbers ...
  • Johannessen, Camilla (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2010)
    Neisseria er en gruppe gram-negative bakterier som består av både patogene og ikke-patogene arter. Patogene Neisseria fører til store helseproblemer på verdensbasis; Neisseria meningitidis kan forårsake meningokokksykdom, ...

    Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is a large, cold-adapted teleost that sustains long-standing commercial fisheries and incipient aquaculture. Here we present the genome sequence of Atlantic cod, showing evidence for complex ...
  • Skjølberg, Henriette C; Fensgård, Øyvind; Nilsen, Hilde; Grallert, Beáta; Boye, Erik (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2009)
    Background In many cell types, including the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, a set of checkpoints are induced by perturbations of the cell cycle or by DNA damage. Many of the checkpoint responses ...
  • Zhou, Yun (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2008)
