Hybridization Analysis Using Oligonucleotide Probe Arrays

  • Robert S. Matson
  • Jang B. Rampal
Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology™ book series (MIMB, volume 381)


This chapter describes methodology for the labeling, hybridization, and detection of amplicon target DNA to arrays of oligonucleotide probes attached to plastic substrates. A systematic approach to target discrimination based on both hybridization and wash stringency is provided.
