Efficient construction of cDNA microarrays utilizing normalized cDNA libraries of Arabidopsis thaliana.

We have demonstrated the utility of normalization for efficient cDNA microarray preparation using Arabidopsis as a model. Nonredundant cDNAs including 5722 species were efficiently collected from random 7914 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) in four normalized cDNA libraries. The prepared microarrays were successfully used to monitor gene expression. These… CONTINUE READING
