Project description:Six sequencing libraries was prepared from S. Typhi planktonic cells and biofilm cells using Illumina HiSeq 2500 sequencing to investigate differential gene expression between the two conditions. The transcriptome was processed using Cufflinks and there were a total of 35 up-regulated genes and 29 down-regulated genes log2-fold change values of greater than 2 and less than negative 2. The differentially expressed genes were identified using BLAST and the functions was analysed. This study provides an overview of the genes that are differentially expressed in S. Typhi when it transitions from the planktonic to the biofilm phenotype. The data will provide a basis for further study is necessary to uncover the mechanisms of biofilm formation in S. Typhi and discovery of novel gene functions or pathways associated with the development of the typhoid carrier state. This data may also be used to elucidate the effect of biofilm on the virulence and pathogenicity of S. Typhi in chronic carriers. Overall design: Examination of two sequencing libraries from planktonic and biofilm cells of S. Typhi
Project description:FabR ChIP-chip on Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium SL1344 using anti-Myc antibody against strain with chromosomally 9Myc-tagged FabR (IP samples) and wildtype strain (mock IP samples) Overall design: IP sample (using anti-Myc antibody against Salmonella Typhimurium SL1344 strain encoding chromosomally 9Myc-tagged FabR) and control mock IP sample (using anti-Myc antibody against Salmonella Typhimurium SL1344 wildtype strain) were labeled with Cy5 and hybridized against a common genomic DNA reference, labeled with Cy3, on 2 S. Typhimurium LT2 whole genome tiling arrays
Project description:We performed transcriptome abundance analysis of Salmonella Typhimurium strain SL1344 swap which has been genetically engineered to express the hns open-reading frame from the stpA promoter and the stpA open reading frame from the hns promoter. This strain is designated SL1344(swap). Transcript abundance was compared with that of wild-type SL1344. This comparison was performed to determine the effect of chromosome location of the expression of two related global regulators and how alterations to their expression patterns would impact on their regulons. Three independent RNA samples were harvested from wild-type SL1344 and SL1344(swap) grown to exponential phase (OD600nm = 0.3) and hybridized to a microarray containing multiple probes for each of the SL1344 open reading frames. Please note that the original raw data file for the 'SL1344_wildtype_BR2' sample is unavailable, however, the 'wildtype SL1344 BR2.gpr' contains the raw data missing only the header information.
Project description:Single-molecule read technologies allow for detection of epigenomic base modifications during routine sequencing by analysis of kinetic data during the reaction, including the duration between base incorporations at the elongation site (the "inter-pulse duration.") Methylome data associated with a closed de novo bacterial genome of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Javiana str. CFSAN001992 was produced and submitted to the Gene Expression Omnibus. Single-sample sequencing and base modification detection of cultured isolate of a foodborne pathogen.
Project description:We mapped the genome-wide binding of C-terminally FLAG-tagged AraC in S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium strain 14028s using ChIP coupled with deep sequencing (ChIP-seq). We identified five putative target loci for AraC: upstream of araB/araC, araE, araJ, STM14_0178, and within sseD.
Project description:Bifidobacterium thermophilum RBL67 (RBL67), a human fecal isolate and promising probiotic candidate, showed antagonistic and protective effects against Salmonella and Listeria in vitro. However, the underlying mechanisms fostering these health-related effects remain unknown. Therefor the transcriptome response of RBL67 and Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium N-15 (N-15) in co-culture compared to the response in their respective mono-cultures. RNA was extracted from culture samples taken after 4 (N-15) or 5 h (RBL67) and RNAseq was performed on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencer. Three biological replciates were performed resulting in 12 data sets: 3 RBL67 mono culture, 3 N15 mono-culture, 3 RBL67 co-culture, 3 N15 co-culture. Our study provided first insights into probiotic-pathogen interaction on transcriptional level and suggests a mechanism for how probiotic organisms can protect the host from infections. RNA was extracted from culture samples taken after 4 (N-15) or 5 h (RBL67) and RNAseq was performed on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencer. Three biological replciates were performed resulting in 12 data sets: 3 RBL67 mono culture, 3 N15 mono-culture, 3 RBL67 co-culture, 3 N15 co-culture.
