    • Quality of dental unit water at university dental clinic, private and public clinics in Tromsø. Investigation of bacteria levels in water samples in dental chair water lines 

      Lilleng, Helga; Gangsø, Luise; Skoglund, Julie (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-04-19)

Therefore, bacterial counts in water that comes from the dental chair unit should always be evaluated. As guideline water that comes from hand pieces/three-way syringes should have less than 200 colony forming units per one mL of water. Aims: The aim of this study ...

    • Quantification of absolute and relative fitness in Acinetobacter baylyi under varying growth conditions 

      Rasmussen, Viktoria Emily (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-08-28)
      Natural transformation is one of three ways for bacteria to acquire genetic material (DNA) horizontally. Several hypotheses exist for why some bacteria have this ability to take up DNA, and what the incoming DNA is used for. These include use of DNA for recombination, repair or as nutrients. This master study focuses on the “food hypothesis”. This hypothesis implies that the exogenous DNA is ...

      Background:<br> Smoking is the most important individual risk factor for many cancer sites but its association with breast and prostate cancer is not entirely clear. Rate advancement periods (RAPs) may enhance communication of smoking related risk to the general population. Thus, we estimated RAPs for the association of smoking exposure (smoking status, time since smoking cessation, smoking ...
