With the development of high-throughput technologies like microarrays for genomic and transcriptomic analysis, and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, and protein arrays for proteomic analysis, it is possible to monitor the changes in gene or protein expression of several hundreds, or even thousands of molecules simultaneously. Within the last years, these technologies have been applied successfully to stem cell research. One of the aims of stem cell expression profiling is… CONTINUE READING
