Abstract: 14 Drosophila melanogaster's blood cells (hemocytes) play essential roles in wound healing and 15 are involved in clearing microbial infections. Here, we report the transcriptional changes of 16 larval plasmatocytes after clean injury or infection with the Gram-negative bacterium 17 Escherichia coli or the Gram-positive bacterium Staphylococcus aureus compared to 18 hemocytes recovered from unchallenged larvae via RNA-Sequencing. This study reveals 676 19 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in hemocytes fro…
