Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

PI Contribution The BPA is a collaboration between UoP, Imperial College London (ICL) and University of Vicosa (UoV) on sRNAs of the pig pathogen Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP). ICLs role has been the identification and characterisation of sRNAs through RNA-seq analyses, and virulence experiments of wild-type and mutants in the Galleria mellonella wax moth model.
Collaborator Contribution UoP have pioneered patented array technology that allows identification of sRNA-mRNA targets at the molecular level UoV are experts on APP, bioinformatic analyses or sRNA, and identification and characterisation of sRNAs in outer membrane vesicles of Gram - negative bacteria.
Impact Multi-disciplinary. ICL and UoV are primarily microbiologists with expertise in APP, UoP are biophysicists, UoV have expertise in sRNA bioinformatics and outer membrane vesicles of Gram negative bacteria. The first visit on the BPA was Febr 2020 where a joint programme of work and publication strategy have been agreed. A PhD student from UoV will be spending 9 months at UoP and 3 months at ICL to enable this programme of work to be completed.
Start Year 2020
