Examples

  • Doctors are already using DNA-based tools, called microarrays or gene chips, to try to figure out the difference between tumors and normal cells in the same person.

    New Insight Into Cells May Spur Advances

  • Because individuals respond differently to such therapies, Dr. Levinson said the company has studied giving the new products to patients prescreened with "embedded diagnostic tests" -- gene assays on chips called microarrays -- to detect who will and won't benefit.

    Genentech's Growth Likely to Slow

  • Some of this testing may be conducted in glassware or other materials (for example glassware or petri dishes) either with living tissue such as cells in cultures, tissues obtained from experimental animals, specially-fabricated tools known as microarrays or with purely chemical systems.

    Animal testing alternatives

  • To address this challenge it is desirable to compare the results from different related studies such as mRNA expression microarrays, genome-wide ChIP-X, RNAi screens, proteomics and phosphoproteomics experiments in a coherent global framework.

  • Although all eQTL studies so far have assayed messenger RNA levels using expression microarrays, recent advances in RNA sequencing enable the analysis of transcript variation at unprecedented resolution.

  • We used high-density gene expression microarrays in a functional epigenetic study of 11 renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cell lines.

  • If you had a way of looking at changes in all the genes that are expressed at one time (which Kelleher does: a process called microarrays), you could monitor the levels of gene expression when an organism is at varying levels of zinc deficiency.

  • Agilent chromatin immunoprecipitation-on-chip (ChIP-on-chip) and gene expression microarrays to study molecules known as "Yamanaka factors" and their roles in inducing pluripotency in mouse cells.

    undefined

  • Fourteen expression microarrays that our laboratory had previously studied from the same platform were incorporated and all microarrays were normalized for COPA analysis.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • The new direct random-primed cDNA labeling method introduced here is suitable for gene expression microarrays and provides a rapid, inexpensive alternative to existing methods.
