Project description:Microarray comparative genome hybridization (mCGH) data was collected from one Neisseria cinerea, two Neisseria lactamica, two Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and 48 Neisseria meningitidis isolates. For N. meningitidis, these isolates are from diverse clonal complexes, invasive and carriage strains, and all major serogroups. The microarray platform represented N. meningitidis strains MC58, Z2491, and FAM18 and N. gonorrhoeae FA1090.
Project description:Deep sequencing of cDNA from Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria and human neutrophils, alone and after coincubation. Overall design: Total RNA was isolated from Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains FA1090/H041 and adherent primary human neutrophils, alone and after co-culture over time. Ribosomal RNA was depleted and the remaining RNA was reverse-transcribed into a cDNA library for Illumina sequencing. Reads were mapped to the FA1090, H041 and/or human genomes.
Project description:The overall goals and objectives of this study are to investigate the transcriptomics of Neisseria gonorrhoeae using RNA-seq. This work will look at gene expression, start points of transcription, transcriptional termination, and differences between these in different conditions and between strains and growing cultures over time. Overall design: The starting baseline for this study is Neisseria gonorrhoeae strain NCCP11945, minimally passaged since it was genome sequenced, grown at 37C in 5% CO2. All other experiments would be based off of this, both in terms of number of samples and replicates.
