How cells turn independent and regulate functions

With his thesis, Jacob Lewerentz, Department of Molecular Biology at UmeƄ University, contributes to the knowledge about how cells regulate their protein level and adapt to a new milieu outside their organism. He has also ...

The roots of biodiversity: How proteins differ across species
