Microbial Ecology

Affymetrix:
This is the first microarray platform that we had performed and the chips that we used were Arabidopsis ATH1 Genome Array Genechip (for Arabidopsis Thaliana) and P. aeruginosa Genome Array Genechip (for Pseudomonas aeruginosa).
Combimatrix
We performed our Pseudomonas microarray using this platform (CustomArray 12K and 4 x 2K). We used this to establish hypothesis and we are currently work on few of the interesting features that were revealed by microarray analysis
Video microscopy analysis
ImagePro: We use the Image Pro software to analyse and compare the motility speeds of different Pseudomonas strains from the videos captured and to do quantification of the biofilm formed on slides.
