Project description:Investigation of whole genome gene expression level changes in Lactococcus lactis KCTC 3769T,L. raffinolactis DSM 20443T, L. plantarum DSM 20686T, L. fujiensis JSM 16395T, L. garvieae KCTC 3772T, L. piscium DSM 6634T and L. chungangensis CAU 28T . This proves that transcriptional profiling can facilitate in elucidating the genetic distance between closely related strains. A one chip study using total RNA recovered from of L. raffinolactis DSM 20443T, L. plantarum DSM 20686T, L. fujiensis JSM 16395T, L. garvieae KCTC 3772T, L. piscium DSM 6634T and L. chungangensis CAU 28T . For the the transcriptome of of L. raffinolactis DSM 20443T, L. plantarum DSM 20686T, L. fujiensis JSM 16395T, L. garvieae KCTC 3772T, L. piscium DSM 6634T and L. chungangensis CAU 28T was analyzed using the Lactococcus lactis KCTC 3769T microarray platform
Project description:In order to pinpoint the most differentially expressed genes between Eucalyptus grandis leaf blades and vascular (xylem) tissues as well as between E. grandis and Eucalyptus globulus xylem tissues, a total number of nine 50mer-oligoprobes covering the length of each one of 21,432 unique sequences derived from the Genolyptus EST dataset were synthesized “on-chip” in duplicate, randomly distributed in two blocks of each slide. Probes were also synthesized from ten cDNA sequences encoding known human proteins as negative controls, totaling 21,442 sequences. Leaves and xylem samples were taken from two E. grandis clonal trees, i.e., both derived from the same matrix tree and harboring the same genotype. Two additional xylem samples were collected from two other E. grandis clonal trees of a different genotype, as well as from two E. globulus clonal trees. Therefore, ten cDNA samples and ten identical chips were produced at Roche NimbleGen for the microarray assays, with a total number of 385,956 features per slide. Besides the discovery of differentially expressed genes between leaf and xylem, we wanted to test the validity of the assumed “technical” and “biological duplicates” since all trees were field-grown and four years-old in age. A ten chip study using total RNA recovered from mature leaf and vascular (xylem) tissues of Eucalyptus grandis and xylem from Eucalyptus globulus trees. Two clonal trees of E. grandis (E.grandis_Clone A_Ramet 1 and E.grandis_Clone A_Ramet 2), derived from a single matrix tree and therefore genomically identical, were the source of two samples of leaf RNA and two samples of xylem RNA, individually hybridized to four chips after cDNA synthesis/Cy3 labeling. Two other clonal trees of E. grandis (E.grandis_Clone B_Ramet 1 and E.grandis_Clone B_Ramet 2), derived from a different matrix tree, were the source of two additional samples of xylem RNA individually hybridized to four chips after cDNA synthesis/Cy3 labeling. Likewise, two pairs of clonal trees of E. globulus (E.globulus_Clone A_Ramet 1 and E.globulus_Clone A_Ramet 2/ E.globulus_Clone B_Ramet 1 and E.globulus_Clone B_Ramet 2), derived from two distinct matrix trees, were the source of four additional samples of xylem RNA, individually hybridized to four chips after cDNA synthesis/Cy3 labeling. Each chip measures the expression level of 21,432 genes from Eucalyptus sp. and ten human genes (negative controls) with nine 50-mer probe pairs (PM/MM) per gene in two separate blocks per chip (technical duplicate), totalizing 18 hybridization signal values per gene per chip.
Project description:Experimentally mapped transcriptome structure of Pyrococcus furiosus DSM 3638 by hybridizing total RNA (including RNA species <200 nt) to genome-wide high-density tiling arrays (60 mer probes tiled every 16 nt). Pyrococcus furiosus DSM 3638 growth curve experiments were conducted in batch culture. Reference samples were cultured at mid-log phase (OD600 = 0.096). Seven samples were collected that spanned the key phases of the growth curve. Total RNA from samples of growth curve and reference were directly labeled with Cy3 or Cy5, and were hybridized to the tiling array. Dye-flip experiments were done for each sample. Log ratios were calculated for each probe (growth curve sample/reference). Transcriptome browser is available at http://baliga.systemsbiology.net/enigma/.
Project description:Comparison of gene expression between L. reuteri DSM 17938 and L. reuteri DSM 17938::pocR mutant grown in semi-defined medium after 24h of growth at 37C in anaerobic condition. PocR is an AraC-like transcriptional regulator, and changes in gene expression between mutant and wild-type strains would indicate genes involved in the PocR regulon. Includes 3 biological replicates and dye-swaps for DSM 17938 versus pocR mutant. One sample includes total RNA isolated from wildtype DSM 17938 labeled with either cy3 or cy5, and total RNA isolated from the pocR mutant labeled with the opposite dye. Samples 1, 2, and 3 represent biological replicates. Samples 4, 5, and 6 represent dye-swaps of the same biological replicates.
