Burkholderia arrays and protocols


As the CFFT funded Burkholderia array program has now finished, Dr. Mahenthiralingam & co-workers have prepared a complete set of protocols for array analysis (GeneExpressionAnalysis Protocol_Cardiff_V4) for your information.

If you would like to perform further analysis using the current B. cenocepacia J2315 array then it can be purchased from Agilent (order number amidid#017397).

We also completed the design of six new arrays for the completed Burkholderia genomes (www.burkholderia.com): Burkholderia cenocepacia HI2424, Burkholderia cenocepacia AU1054,
Burkholderia cepacia AMMD (B. ambifaria AMMD), Burkholderia multivorans ATCC 17616,
Burkholderia vietnamiensis G4, and Burkholderia sp. 383 (Burkholderia lata 383).


These are available for purchase from OGT who then have them printed by Agilent in exactly the
same format as the current J2315 array. The cost is around 596 per slide (149 per array).

The team of dr. Mahenthiralingam has used the B. ambifaria AMMD and B. lata 383 array experimentally and found their performance to be excellent using the protocols shown below and running genomic DNA as a reference channel.
