Microarray Technology Through Applications provides the reader with an understanding, from an applications perspective, of the diverse range of concepts required to master the experimental and data analysis aspects of microarray technology.
The book is divided into three sections. Section 1 is a concise introduction to the technology and provide the theoretical background to understanding the subsequent sections. It also includes an independent scientific review of the products available from the five main manufacturers of microarray equipment. Section 2 is a series of chapters describing case studies representative of the most general and important applications of microarray technology. The case studies are written by experts in the field and describe prototypic projects, indicating how to generalize the approach to similar studies. The last section of the book contains detailed step-by-step protocols describing the specific experimental and data analysis protocols mentioned in the case study section
"With a collection of interesting case studies and a hands-on approach, this survey of experimental and data analysis methods and techniques in microarray technology takes the needs of the novice into consideration along with the curiosity of the practitioner in applications research." Book News Inc
