Project description:Transcriptional profiling of the bacteria Paenibacillus vortex comparing control untreated cells with kanamycin treated cells after 18 hours of exposure. Goal was to determine the effect of the antibiotic kanamycin in concentration which affect the colony morphology on global bacteria gene expression. Two-condition experiment, control cells vs. kanamycin treated cells. Biological replicates: 2 control replicates, 2 treated replicates. Pooling of 5 technical replicates for each biological replicate.
Project description:Paenibacillus larvae, the causal agent of American Foulbrood disease (AFB), affects honeybee health worldwide. The present study investigates the transcriptional response of this Gram-positive, endospore-forming bacterium to bodily fluids from honeybee larvae. Four different conditions were evaluated with a loop design: sampling of in vitro grown P. larvae cultures one or four hours after addition of larval fluids or BHIT-broth (C1, T1, C4, T4). Overall design: total of 16 samples, 4 independent samples per group, 4 groups (C1, C4, T1 and T4), loopdesign, dye swap
