Description: Recent improvements in the efficiency, quality, and cost of genome-wide sequencing have prompted biologists and biomedical researchers to move away from microarray-based technology to ultra high-throughput, massively parallel genomic sequencing (Next Generation Sequencing, NGS) technology. In Next Generation Microarray Bioinformatics: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers in the field provide techniques to bring together current computational and statistical methods to analyze and interpreting both microarray and NGS data. These methods and techniques include resources for microarray bioinformatics, microarray data analysis, microarray bioinformatics in systems biology, next generation sequencing data analysis, and emerging applications of microarray and next generation sequencing. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, the chapters include the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results in the laboratory.Authoritative and practical, Next Generation Microarray Bioinformatics: Methods and Protocols seeks to aid scientists in the further study of this crucially important research into the human DNA.
