A whole genome NibleGen microarray was developed for multiple Francisella subspecies, using shared probes for common genes as well as unique probes for subspecies-specific genes. Included were probes representing the F. novicida U112 genome, with a maximum of 6 probes/gene. RNA was isolated from bacteria and purified as described above. The double-strand cDNA was generated and labeled with Cy3 according to the NimbleGen Gene Expression Array protocol (www.nimblegen.com), using SuperScript Double-Stranded cDNA Synthesis Kit (Invitrogen) and the DNA Labeling Kit (NimbleGen). Microarray results were analyzed using the ArrayStar software (DNASTAR).
