Heat map analysis of cell wall genes. Heat map analysis of "core cell wall genes" and additional cell wall genes which have been commonly shown to be important in cell wall biosynthesis [56]. The results are expressed as fold ratio of gene expression for hVISA/VISA compared to VSSA. Results are presented for all 5 isolate pairs without antibiotic exposure and all 5 isolate pairs after exposure to vancomycin.
