About this book


DNA microarray technology has revolutionized research in the past decade. Initially an application for mRNA expression studies, the technology now has spread to other applications such as comparative genomic hybridization, SNP and mutation analysis. In DNA Microarrays for Biomedical Research: Methods and Protocols, experts explore these now commonly used applications, addressing probe design strategies, fabrication issues and providing practical examples of detailed methods for generation of high quality DNA microarray data. Chapters incorporate information on some of the largest providers of microarray, including Affymetrix, Ilumina and Agilent, and their use on a variety of applications. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and highly practical, DNA Microarrays for Biomedical Research: Methods and Protocols presents a variety of protocols which can be easily reproduced, allowing researchers to gain surprising insight into the complex world of DNA microarray technology.
