Miseq (18S) analysis of spiked placental tissue samples

Dataset ID Technology Samples
EGAD00001004197 HiSeq X Ten 7

Dataset Description

We spiked a small number of placental tissue samples with different combinations of Candida albicans, Plasmodium falciparum, Toxoplasma gondii, Human Cytolomega virus and Salmonella bongori (various combination of the equivalents of 1, 10, 100, 1000 and 10000 genome copies). A DNA isolation was performed on these spiked samples and the resulting DNA was subsequently sequenced by MiSeq (18S). These same samples were also analysed by X Ten to allow for a sensitivity comparison of the two methods of the eukaryotic spiked signals (Candida albicans, Plasmodium falciparum and Toxoplasma gondii). In addition, non-spiked placental samples from 50 cases of Fetal Growth Restriction (FGR) (+ matched healthy controls) and 49 cases of Preeclampsia (+ matched healthy controls) and 100 preterm cases were analyzed for their non-human eukaryotic content.
