Microarrays is an invaluable laboratory manual for anyone conducting experiments in the field of molecular biology or medical biochemistry who needs to understand and use microarray technologies. These technologies are especially appropriate in genome analysis, diagnostics, and studies involving differential gene expression. Providing straightforward explanations, the authors demonstrate proven methods for biochip application and an overview of presently available instruments, biochips, and software. Chapters cover the different requirements for DNA and protein chips, as well as spotters and scanners. The book also covers high throughput screening, patent research, and the minimum requirements for setting up or expanding a microarray laboratory.
