The human genome contains an estimated 3 billion bases of DNA making up some 100000 genes, and the variation within this genome accounts for human diversity and, in many cases, disease. Defining and understanding the expression profile of given genotypes is essential to understanding adverse effects from acute or chronic exposure to environmental toxicants or other stimuli. DNA array technology could help researchers understand how organisms function in response to exposure by elucidating the… CONTINUE READING
