Project description:Whole-genome sequencing is an important way to understand the genetic information, gene function, biological characteristics, and living mechanisms of organisms. There is no difficulty to have mega-level genomes sequenced at present. However, we encountered a hard-to-sequence genome of Pseudomonas aeruginosa phage PaP1. The shotgun sequencing method failed to dissect this genome. After insisting for 10 years and going over 3 generations of sequencing techniques, we successfully dissected the PaP1 genome with 91,715 bp in length. Single-molecule sequencing revealed that this genome contains lots of modified bases, including 51 N6-methyladenines (m6A) and 152 N4-methylcytosines (m4C). At the same time, further investigations revealed a novel immune mechanism of bacteria, by which the host bacteria can recognize and repel the modified bases containing inserts in large scale, and this led to the failure of the shotgun method in PaP1 genome sequencing. Strategy of resolving this problem is use of non-library dependent sequencing techniques or use of the nfi- mutant of E. coli DH5α as the host bacteria to construct the shotgun library. In conclusion, we unlock the mystery of phage PaP1 genome hard to be sequenced, and discover a new mechanism of bacterial immunity in present study. Methylation profiling of Pseudomonas aeruginosa phage PaP1 using kinetic data generated by single-molecule, real-time (SMRT) sequencing on the PacBio RS.

Project description:Genome-wide transcriptomics (RNA-seq) data was obtained temporally at 0, 15, 30, 45, 60 and 120 minutes of the infection with phage 18:3 on Cellulophaga baltica strain #18 to analyze, in biological triplicates, the phage and host transcriptional response during their interaction compared to the uninfected control.
Project description:adt09-02_fireman - fireman vs wt erwinia infection - A meta-analysis ot the CATMA transcriptomic data has shown that an orphan gene of Arabidopsis: AT5E39460, recently remaned AT5G 44585, is highly responsive to biotic stresses. An homozygous mutant of this gene, named fireman has been produced and displays less cell death symptoms in comparison to the wild type in response to Erwinia amylovora infection. The purpose of this transcriptomic analysis is to understand which pathways are altered in this mutant versus the wild-type in response to this phytopathogenic bacteria. - 3 inoculated leaves of 5 weeks old plants, per plant, have been harvested 24h after inoculation with H20 or E. amylovora, strain 1430. Keywords: normal vs disease comparison, normal vs transgenic comparaison Overall design: 8 dye-swap - CATMA arrays
