 en BIOTECHNOLOGY MINI REVIEW - DNA MICROARRAYS: MANUFACTURE AND APPLICATIONS
Mark Street

Abstract

DNA microarrays have greatly assisted scientists in their genomic endeavors. Microarrays are simply pieces of immobilized DNA sequences bound to a solid phase that has the ability to interact with a complementary piece of DNA. Whilst relatively simple in their design and manufacture, microarrays have multiple applications including genotyping, gene expression estimation as a diagnostic tool, drug selection and the identification of signature genes. Microarray technology is still in its infancy and is anticipated to advance rapidly in many aspects.
