Using the massively parallel technique of sequencing by oligonucleotide ligation and detection (SOLiD; Applied Biosystems), we have assessed the in vivo positions of more than 44 million putative nucleosome cores in the multicellular genetic model organism Caenorhabditis elegans. These analyses provide a global view of the chromatin architecture of a(More)
We describe the genome sequencing of an anonymous individual of African origin using a novel ligation-based sequencing assay that enables a unique form of error correction that improves the raw accuracy of the aligned reads to >99.9%, allowing us to accurately call SNPs with as few as two reads per allele. We collected several billion mate-paired reads(More)
High-throughput RNA sequencing enables quantification of transcripts (both known and novel), exon/exon junctions and fusions of exons from different genes. Discovery of gene fusions-particularly those expressed with low abundance- is a challenge with short- and medium-length sequencing reads. To address this challenge, we implemented an RNA-Seq mapping(More)
The role of epithelial polarity and bacterial factors in the control of the innate immune response of airway epithelial cells to Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAK was investigated using a human, nasal cystic fibrosis (DeltaF508/DeltaF508) epithelial cell line CF15 grown as confluent layers on permeable supports. Addition of PAK to the basal surface of CF15 layers(More)
phenotype. We have now modified the extracellular matrix to allow for co-cultures of AT-I and AT-II cells to better model communication in vivo. R espiratory infections by the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa in immunocompromised patients or in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) are the result of unique conditions that allow this Gram-negative(More)
Chronic lung infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa causes significant morbidity in cystic fibrosis patients initiated by the failure of innate immune responses. We used microarray analysis and real-time PCR to detect transcriptional changes associated with cytokine production in isogenic bronchial epithelial cell lines with either wild-type (WT) or mutant(More)
