The goal of this MQP was to identify and characterize differentially expressed genes associated with Listeria monocytogenes infection in two strains of mice, BALB/cbyj (Listeria sensitive) and C57BL/6ByJ (Listeria resistant). We identified several genes both upregulated and deregulated by the host during infection, and mapped one gene's chromosomal location (though inconclusively) to gain a more complete understanding of the biochemical processes involved in the innate immune response.
