Expression Profiling and Isolation of Differentially Expressed Genes by Indexing-Based Differential Display

  • Michael P. Starkey
Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology™ book series (MIMB, volume 175)


Profiling the expression status at the level of transcription is a starting point for delineation of the function of both known and unknown gene products. In addition, the identification of genes expressed in a regionally, temporally, or environmentally specific manner is fundamental to the understanding of processes such as development, differentiation, and disease.
