  • The dataset consists of 14 hox gene mRNA sequences collected from the little skate, Leucoraja erinacea, for use as riboprobes in in situ hybridisation experiments to study axial regionalisation in cartilaginous fishes. The sequences were generated using Sanger sequencing at the University of Cambridge DNA Sequencing Facility in the Department of Biochemistry and gene identities were verified using the Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) from the National Center for Biotechnology Information. This laboratory-based study was conducted in the UK on animals originating in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of north-eastern North America. 'This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. This data is archived in the National Center for Biotechnology Information

  • We do not fully understand how important types (species) of bacteria and packages of genetic material (genes) coding for antibiotic resistance move between humans, animals and the environment, or where, how and why antibiotic resistance emerges. This study looked in detail on a genetic level at bacteria in farm animals, human/animal sewage, sewage treatment works and rivers, to work out the complex network of transmission of important antibiotic-resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes. The overarching aim was to use this information to work out how best to slow down the spread of antibiotic resistance between humans, livestock and the environment. Sampling occurred at three discrete time-points : January-April 2017, June-July 2017, October-November 2017. Research was funded through NERC grant NE/N019989/1. The environmental REsistome: confluence of Human and Animal Biota in antibiotic resistance spread (REHAB)
