Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Wayne Xu, MSI

Microarray technology is a new high-throughput system for gene expression detections. It is becoming a routine experimental technique for life science research.

This tutorial will overview the microarray technology including gene chip design, data acquisition, data normalization, data analysis, and gene list interpretation.

We will also introduce and compare several microarray software tools that the Institute hosts including: GeneSpring, Expressionist, and GeneTraffic.

Prerequisites: Basic Biology
