Microarray-based expression profiling and informatics

Curr Opin Biotechnol. 2008 Feb;19(1):26-9. doi: 10.1016/j.copbio.2007.10.008. Epub 2007 Nov 28.


Microarray-based expression profiling is a powerful technology for studying biological mechanisms and for developing clinically valuable predictive classifiers. The high-dimensional read-out for each sample assayed makes it possible to do new kinds of studies but also increases the risks of misleading conclusions. We review here the current state-of-the-art for design and analysis of microarray-based investigations.
