Observing the living genome

Curr Opin Genet Dev. 1999 Dec;9(6):715-22. doi: 10.1016/s0959-437x(99)00033-7.


Dynamic pictures of living genomes are now beginning to emerge from systematic studies of gene expression patterns using DNA microarrays. The rich information represented in the variation in each gene's expression provides the basis for a new kind of genomic map.
