Detection of a Yersinia pestisgene homologue in rodent samples (2016)
Journal Article
Giles, T. A., Greenwood, A. D., Tsangaras, K., Giles, T. C., Barrow, P. A., Hannant, D., …Yon, L. (2016). Detection of a Yersinia pestisgene homologue in rodent samples. PeerJ, 4, doi:10.7717/peerj.2216. ISSN 2167-8359

A homologue to a widely used genetic marker, pla, for Yersinia pestis has been identified in tissue samples of two species of rat (Rattus rattus and Rattus norvegicus) and of mice (Mus musculus and Apodemus sylvaticus) using a microarray based platfo... Read More

Development of a DNA-based microarray for the detection of zoonotic pathogens in rodent species (2015)
Journal Article
Giles, T., Yon, L., Hannant, D., Barrow, P., & Abu-Median, A. (2015). Development of a DNA-based microarray for the detection of zoonotic pathogens in rodent species. Molecular and Cellular Probes, 29(6), doi:10.1016/j.mcp.2015.07.005. ISSN 0890-8508

The demand for diagnostic tools that allow simultaneous screening of samples for multiple pathogens is increasing because they overcome the limitations of other methods, which can only screen for a single or a few pathogens at a time. Microarrays off... Read More
