16s rRNA microarray analysis of murine blood and brain tissue


Microbial DNA was isolated from brain tissue and whole blood of healthy mice and assessed by 16S rRNA gene phylogenetic microarray (PhyloChip G3). We present evidence of bacteria found in both blood and brain tissue. Moreover, a significant separation was observed between sample types based on presence/absence and abundance metrics of the detected operational taxonomic units.
