Advantages and disadvantages of microarrays to study microbial population dynamics – a minireview

Abstract

Microbial ecology is challenging because of practical problems associated with detecting and quantifying populations. Bacteria and yeasts are not easily identified using conventional methods such as dilution plating and biochemical tests. Those methods lack sensitivity, are extremely time-consuming and cannot account for unculturable organisms. New DNA… (More)
