Project description:Co-hybridization of Adenovirus type 40 and 41 to test probe specificity for closely related viral targets. ATCC strains of Adenovirus type 40 and 41 were hybridized to the array as a control run and a proof of concept. Degree of cross hybridization between polio nucleic acid and non-adenovirus 40 and 41 probes was evaluated. Specificity of the probe design was determined between closely related members of the same virus family. Keywords: control study: target detection and specificity Overall design: 2 lab strains of adenovirus (type 40 and 41) were extracted directly from ATCC samples. Viral DNA was was extracted and labeled with Cy3 and Cy5 dyes for Adenovirus type 40 and 41 respectively.
Project description:Adenovirus type 2 RNA splicing sites were mapped by using deep cDNA sequencing. The majority of the previously identified splice sites were detected. In addition, novel splicing sites were identified Total RNA obtained from four time stages of human primary lung fibroblast cells IMR-90 infected by adenovirus type 2 compared to the control mock-infected by adenovirus type 2.
