I have a genome of pathogen and a library of transcripts from the host. My concern is to find transcripts of host that might have pathogen-host interaction.
The idea is, find pathogen and host genes that are involved in the outcome of pathogen-host interactions. To find this, maybe can use PHI-base or virulence factor db to search potential genes in the pathogen and host genomes. Say we found x number from pathogen genes and y number from host genes. So x and y is said to be potential genes that involved in pathogen-host interaction. Is it correct?
