Project context and summary :

Blood cells were collected in the field from patients admited in the Ebola treatment center of Macenta (Guinea). After red cells lysis, blood cells were frozen and RNA was extracted after the shipment of samples in France. Despite poor RNA quality, Affimetrix chips have been performed and transcriptomic data are available. The aim of this study is to compare the transcriptomic data from patients who survived and those who died and also to perform a kinetic analysis of the infection in the two groups of patients.  Samples from febrile patients who were not infected with Ebola virus have been used as negative controls.
