Principles and Applications of Deoxyribonucleic Acid Microarray : A Review Review

The different types of DNA microarray or DNA chip devices and systems are described along with their methods of fabrication and their use, and theDNA microarray assembly process is automatized and further miniaturized.

Microarray-Based Analysis of Microbial Community RNAs by Whole-Community RNA Amplification

The amplification method which was developed was applied to the active microbial populations in a denitrifying fluidized bed reactor used for denitrification of contaminated groundwater and ethanol-stimulated groundwater samples for uranium reduction, suggesting that this approach is useful for analyzing the functional activities of microbial communities.

Microarray Based Genotyping : A Review

The evolution of microarray as a molecular biology tool, the strengths and limitations of most commonly used microarray techniques, and finally the reader is provided with a look into the future of micro array in clinical diagnosis are discussed.

New Approach for Microarray Data Decision Making with Respect to Multiple Sources

This work is interested to two huge Microarray databases: GEO and ArrayExpress and the integration was based on semantic web technologies used to integrate data from several Web sites and Microarray data sources.

Denoising techniques for low intensity fluorescense signal of DNA microarrays

A quantitative measure of image is provided by signal to noise ratio (SNR) of image and visual quality of denoised images compared with universal quality index to reduce the quantification errors in calculating the expression levels in individual microarray spots and for better representation of the microarray data for clinical diagnosis.

Metagenomics approaches in systems microbiology.

A survey of important methodologies in metagenomics is conducted and systems microbiology-like approaches for gaining a mechanistic understanding of complex microbial systems to interrogate compositional, evolutionary and metabolic properties are described.

Molecular Diagnosis of Fish Diseases: a Review

The application of new techniques as a routine tool in a diagnostic laboratory is an area where relevant literature is scarce and this may contribute to the reticence of some to adopt these methods.

MLP network for lung cancer presence prediction based on microarray data

The methodology proposes an approach based on MLP neural network to resolve the problem of lung cancer classification based on Microarray data and consists on data reduction by using the PCA Technique, followed by a classification basedon MLP network, feed-forward neural network known by its stable learning.



DNA microarrays : a practical approach

This book is intended for genomics researchers investigating patterns of gene expression (and the relationship with disease) wanting to take advantage of this powerful new technology.

DNA arrays for analysis of gene expression.

A DNA microarray system for analyzing complex DNA samples using two-color fluorescent probe hybridization.

This work describes a general experimental approach, using microscopic arrays of DNA fragments on glass substrates for differential hybridization analysis of fluorescently labeled DNA samples, and demonstrates the utility of DNA microarrays in the analysis of complex DNA samples.

DNA chips: State-of-the art

The technology and applications of microarrays of immobilized DNA or oligonucleotides are reviewed, which have been successfully applied to the simultaneous expression of many thousands of genes and to large-scale gene discovery, as well as polymorphism screening and mapping of genomic DNA clones.

DNA microarrays with stem-loop DNA probes: preparation and applications.

DNA microarrays containing stem-loop DNA probes with short single-stranded overhangs immobilized on a Packard HydroGel chip, a 3-dimensional porous gel substrate are developed and demonstrated to provide excellent specificity with signal-to-background ratios of from 10- to 300-fold.

High-Density Microarray of Small-Subunit Ribosomal DNA Probes

The use of photolithography chip technology to perform sequence analyses on amplified small-subunit rRNA genes and the method compared favorably with cloning and sequencing amplicons in determining the presence of phylogenetic groups and may become widely useful.

High density synthetic oligonucleotide arrays

An approach in which sequence information is used directly to design high–density, two–dimensional arrays of synthetic oligonucleotides is developed, which have been designed and used for quantitative and highly parallel measurements of gene expression, to discover polymorphic loci and to detect the presence of thousands of alternative alleles.

Comparison between different strategies of covalent attachment of DNA to glass surfaces to build DNA microarrays.

The results indicate that fixation of aminated DNA to an aldehyde-modified surface is a choice method to build DNA microarrays and both the coupling procedure and the hybridization efficiency have been optimized.

Portable System for Microbial Sample Preparation and Oligonucleotide Microarray Analysis

A three-component system for microbial identification that consists of a universal syringe-operated silica minicolumn, a newly developed hydroxyl radical-based technique for DNA and RNA labeling and fragmentation, and a portable battery-powered device for imaging the hybridization of fluorescently labeled RNA fragments with the arrays was used to discriminateEscherichia coli, Bacillin subtilis, Bacillus thuringiensis, and human HL60 cells.

Quantitative assessment of DNA microarrays--comparison with Northern blot analyses.

It is demonstrated that DNA microarrays provide quantitative data comparable to Northern blot in general, but a few issues must be considered when analyzing data.
