    IVET IVET (in vivo expression technology) and STM STM (signature-tagged mutagenesis) are suitable methods for revealing genes that are induced in soil and are essential in soil, respectively. These methods are potentially advantageous over newer methods, such as microarray and RNA-seq, because they allow analyses of bacteria under non-sterile conditions. However, their application to non-sterile soil also presents challenges that must be overcome. In this work, we describe the difficulties we faced when using IVET to identify genes that are upregulated in Burkholderia multivorans ATCC 17616 ATCC 17616 in soil. We also describe the future perspectives of these and other analytical schemes, including the potential use of next-generation sequencing technologies that might allow comprehensive isolation of soil-relevant genes and also might improve the quality of research from a qualitative point of view.
