DNA Microarrays and Gene Expression: From Experiments to Data Analysis and Modeling

by

DNA Microarrays and Gene Expression: From Experiments to Data Analysis and Modeling Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Massive data acquisition technologies--such as genome sequencing, high-throughput drug screening, and DNA arrays-- are in the process of revolutionizing biology and medicine. Using the mRNA of a given cell, at a given time, under a given set of conditions, DNA microarrays can provide a snapshot of the level of expression of all the genes in the cell. Such snapshots can be used to study fundamental biological phenomena such as development or evolution, to determine the function of new genes, to infer the role individual genes or groups of genes may play in diseases, and to monitor the effect of drugs and other compounds on gene expression.

Book News Annotation:

Baldi (genomics, bioinformatics) and Hatfield (microbiology, molecular genetics: both authors teach at the U. of California, Irvine), drawing on the joint technology from their fields, have written a detailed introduction to DNA microarray technology with the researcher in mind. The book begins with an overview of genomics then turns to DNA array technologies with chapters on methods, technology, instrumentation, design issues, current problematic aspects of gene expression profiling experiments, different levels of statistical analysis, an overview of applications, and an introduction to systems biology.
