This analysis is part of the study Whole-transcriptome analysis of Staphylococcus aureus under laboratory and infection-mimicking conditions (Mäder, Nicolas et al., to be submitted) where the S. aureus HG001 transcriptome was analyzed under more than 40 different biological conditions. The data revealed a relatively low abundance of antisense RNAs in S. aureus, overlapping only 6% of the coding genes. Transcriptome analysis of the rho deletion mutant revealed a remarkable overall increase in antisense transcription in S. aureus. delta rho and wild type
