Post clinical examination, excisional skin biopsy specimens were collected from skin lesions of subjects with and without type 2 reaction. Total RNA was extracted following the Trizol protocol and bacterial RNA was enriched in the samples. A 2 x 400K gene expression array (whole genome tiling array) was designed with the probes having 60-mer oligonucleotides tiling every 10bp of the genome sequence of M. leprae (NC_011896.1).
