Transcript of DNA Microarrays

Microarray application In the past,
classified diffferent types of cancer
based on organs. In the future,
based on patterns on gene activity. What's DNA Microarray technology used for? What's DNA microarray technology? All of the cells in the human body
contain identical material But the same genes are not active in every cell. Microarray technology evolved from Southern blotting, where fragmented DNA is attached to a substrate and then probed with a known gene or fragment. Figure 1. The power of genomics and proteomics: microarray applications. DNA microarray principle

Applications of Microarrays

Gene discovery: identification of new genes, know about their functioning and expression levels Disease diagnosis: heart diseases, mental illness, infectious disease and especially the study of cancer. it will be possible for the researchers to further classify the types of cancer on the basis of the patterns of gene activity in the tumor cells.
Toxicological research: Microarray technology provides a robust platform for the research of the impact of toxins on the cells and their passing on to the progeny. Figure : Difference between forward phase and reverse phase protein microarrays. A: Forward phase protein microarray; B: reverse phase protein microarray.. Drug discovery: Comparative analysis of the genes from a diseased and a normal cell will help the identification of the biochemical constitution of the proteins synthesized by the diseased genes.
