Abstract

Immense genomic data have been accumulated through various research activities such as the Human Genome Project. A genome is the entire collection of information on the DNA molecules of each organism. The application of information technology to data mining analyses of genomic data is known as bioinformatics, which could be a most rewarding field for a computer scientist. This chapter describes DNA microarray technology, one of the hot topics in bioinformatics.
