Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen that causes infections with a high-mortality rate and has served as an invaluable model for intracellular parasitism. Here, we report complete genome sequences for two L. monocytogenes strains belonging to serotype 4a (L99) and 4b (CLIP80459), and transcriptomes of representative strains from lineages I, II,(More)
Small noncoding RNAs (sncRNAs) have moved from oddity to recognized important players in gene regulation. Next generation sequencing approaches discover more and more such molecules from a variety of different groups, but flexible tools translating this sequence information into affordable high-throughput assays are missing. Here we describe a microfluidic(More)
In the recent years, the number of drug- and multi-drug-resistant microbial strains has increased rapidly. Therefore, the need to identify innovative approaches for development of novel anti-infectives and new therapeutic targets is of high priority in global health care. The detection of small RNAs (sRNAs) in bacteria has attracted considerable attention(More)
