Fast sequencing techniques enabled the complete decoding of the human genome, and many more model organisms. Scientists are using DNA microarrays to investigateuntersuchen everything from cancer to pest control.
Why using a DNA Microarray Analysis?
Microarrays are used for genome analysis, to aid diagnosis and for research on differential gene expression. DNA microarrays rapidly and very reliably determine the amount of mRNA from several thousand genes within specific healthy or diseased tissues. Scientists use DNA microarrays to simultaneously measure the expression levels of large numbers of genes or to genotype multiple regions of a genome.
What is a DNA Microarray?
DNA microarray technology is based on the hybridization of nucleic acids. Single stranded DNA sequences bind to…
