A protocol for the analysis of preferential gene expression was devised and validated. Analysis revealed possible sequence upregulation of RNA polymerase beta subunits, pyruvate formate lyase activating enzyme and a deoxyglucose epimerase enzyme at pH 7.0. The colonisation patterns in all sites were shown to be complex with many different clonotypes of a given species present. Interestingly, over time the colonisation patterns were not stable with significant changes in the species representation. The Streptococcus anginosus group has been show to display a significant amount of genomic diversity during in-vitro culture.
