to the Campylobacter Resource Facility website at the London School of Hygiene
& Tropical Medicine (LSHTM)
The Campylobacter Resource Facility website has been created to display
data and resources generated from Brendan Wren's group at the LSHTM. The
group uses genome-based technologies such as microarrays and double-tagged
mutants to study the pathogenesis of this microorganism.
We have completed the re-annotation of the Campylobacter
jejuni NCTC11168 genome (Gundogdu O, et al. 2007, BMC Genomics), originally sequenced at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
J, Wren B, et al. 2000, Nature). The re-annotation, undertaken
Gundogdu has updated over 1450 of the original 1654 coding sequences
published in the year 2000. 300 product functions were also updated. A
link to the new file containing updated annotations can be found here.
In addition, the website incorporates a list of Campylobacter mutants
produced by researchers within the Wren group and in collaboration with
Julian Ketley's group at The University of Leicester. We also have information regarding the Campylobacter protein map within the Proteomics section.
