Summary: Massive data acquisition technologies, such as genome sequencing, high-throughput drug screening, and DNA arrays are in the process of revolutionizing biology and medicine. Using the mRNA of a given cell, at a given time, under a given set of conditions, DNA microarrays can provide a snapshot of the level of expression of all the genes in the cell. Such snapshots can be used to study fundamental biological phenomena such as development or evolution, to determine the fun morection of new genes, to infer the role individual genes or groups of genes may play in diseases, and to monitor the effect of drugs and other compounds on gene expression. This inter-disciplinary introduction to DNA arrays will be essential reading for both biology and computer science researchers wanting to take advantage of this powerful new technology.

  • Concise, user-friendly overview of this revolutionary new technology
  • Co-authored by a computer scientist and biologist to give a unique, inter-disciplinary introduction to this fast-moving field
  • An accessible introduction for both the biology and computer science communities less
