Description:The area of microarrays has evolved from genomics, and has been applied to proteomics and single cell studies as well. The applications of microarrays benefit diverse fields ranging from fundamental systems biology to practical diagnostic tests. This book provides a critical analysis of the applications of microarrays in several key areas of bioanalytical research including DNA studies, peptide arrays, protein arrays, combinatorial chemistry arrays, cell-based arrays, and glycoarrays. Further progress in microarrays is being spurred by the advances in micro- and nano-fabrication technologies, modern molecular biology, and data mining. This book is designed to be a useful source of fundamental and current information for microarray research practitioners and for those who are just entering this field.
