Genetics of gene expression in human macrophage response to Salmonella

Dataset Description

Understanding how cells sense and respond to their environment, and how these responses are modulated by genetic variation, are fundamental biological problems, particularly for understanding how pathogenic organisms invade and manipulate the cells of the human immune system. Macrophages recognize and respond to many important human pathogens including HIV-1, Mycobacteria tuberculosis and Salmonella. This study will focus on the cellular response of human macrophages to Salmonella infection and how this response is modulated by the genetic bacground of the individual as well as additional pro-inflammatory stimulus (interferon-gamma priming). We will acquire 100 human induced pluripotent stem cell lines from the HipSci project, differentiate the cells in vitro into macrophages and expose them to four environmental conditions: (i) no stimulation, (ii) interferon-gamma (18h), (iii) Salmonella typhimurium SL1344 (5h), (iv) interferon-gamma (18h) + Salmonella (5h).Subsequently, we will isolate RNA from the samples for sequencing.
