Microarray Technology provides information in designing, fabricating arrays and binding studies with biological analytes. Divided into two volumes, the first deals with methods for preparations of microarrays, with the second focusing on applications and data analysis. The volumes also provide the reader with a broader description of microarray technology tools and its potential applications. In combination, these volumes will provide valuable information to both novices and experts in the field of research.
