  • From overenthusiasm to scientific assessment and hard reality, the time required for this transiton has recently been drastically shortened. As high-throughput screening technology is rapidly evolving, it allows for the testing of new conceptual study designs to manage highly complex diseases, such as cancer. Profiling the expression of thousands of genes simultaneously by microarrays created optimism a decade ago. It was thought that we could move away from an empirical, general, tumor–node… CONTINUE READING
