Agnaeber, Aziza Kalil (2020-03-01)

Human beings possess dozens of thousands of genomes, and the innovation of DNA microarrays by Patrick et al in the mid-1990s enabled many of genes to be analyzed simultaneously. Initial research utilizing microarrays relied on trying to determine which genes between normal cells and cancer cells were displayed in different manner


Microarrays are a technology to which thousand nucleic acids are attached to a surface that's used to estimate the relative concentration of nucleic acid sequences in a mixture by hybridization and hybridization event detection. In this report we will discuss the background of microarrays and the prior developments that may have led to their advancement. We then discuss the methods of manufacture, restriction and the most common biological application.
