Comparison of physiology and genome-wide expression in two Nitrosomonas spp. under batch cultivationDownload
Ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB) play a central role in the nitrogen cycle by oxidizing ammonia to nitrite. Nitrosomonas europaea ATCC 19718 has been the single most studied AOB that has contributed to our understanding of chemolithotrophic ammonia oxidation. As a closely related species,...
Diversity of ABC transporter genes across the plant kingdom and their potential utility in biotechnologyDownload
The ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter gene superfamily is ubiquitous among extant organisms and prominently represented in plants. ABC transporters act to transport compounds across cellular membranes and are involved in a diverse range of biological processes. Thus, the applicability to...
Identification of genes associated with ricinoleic acid accumulation in Hiptage benghalensis via transcriptome analysisDownload
Background: Ricinoleic acid is a high-value hydroxy fatty acid with broad industrial applications.Hiptage benghalensis seed oil contains a high amount of ricinoleic acid (~80%) and represents an emerging source of this unusual fatty acid. However, the mechanism of ricinoleic acid accumulation in...
Insights into temperature adaptation in the Thermotogae gained through transcriptomics and comparative genomicsDownload
Thermophilic microbes are extremophiles that live at high temperatures. In order to survive and maintain function of their biological molecules, they have a suite of characteristics not found in organisms that grow at moderate temperatures (mesophiles) that range from the cellular to the protein...

Insights into temperature adaptation in the Thermotogae gained through transcriptomics and comparative genomics - AppendicesDownload
These are appendices C - G for the University of Alberta M.Sc. thesis: Pollo, Stephen M. J. 2014. Insights into temperature adaptation in the Thermotogae gained through transcriptomics and comparative genomics
Investigating early life microbial and host transcriptomic dynamics in the bovine gastrointestinal tractDownload
There is increasing concern surrounding the ability of livestock industries to meet the needs of the rising global population. The gastrointestinal microbiota of ruminants plays a critical role in feed degradation, host energy supply, but is also a substantial source of anthropogenic greenhouse...
Pollination biology and transcriptomics of Cleomaceae species exhibiting different pollination systemsDownload
Pollinator mediated-selection is responsible for much of the phenotypic diversity exhibited by flowers. Flowering plants or angiosperms that attract a diverse range of pollinators represent a generalist pollination system in which selection is exerted by many different pollinators. However,...
