The advent of next-generation sequencing technology has revolutionized the field of prokaryotic genetics and genomics by allowing interrogation of entire genomes, transcriptomes and global transcription factor binding profiles. As more studies employing these techniques have been performed, the state of the art regarding prokaryotic gene regulation has developed from the level of individual genes to genetic regulatory networks and systems biology. When applied to bacterial pathogens, particularly valuable insights have been gained into the regulation of virulence-associated genes, their relative importance to bacterial survival in planktonic, biofilm or host infection scenarios, antimicrobial resistance and the molecular details of host-pathogen interactions. This review outlines some of the latest developments and applications of next-generation sequencing techniques that have used primarily Pseudomonas aeruginosa as a model system. We focus particularly on insights into Pseudomonas virulence and infection that have been gained from these approaches and the future directions in which this field could develop.
