Abstract

Studies of the expression patterns of many genes simultaneously lead to the observation that even in closely related pathologies, there are numerous genes that are differentially expressed in consistent patterns correlated to each sample type. The early uses of the enabling technology, microarrays, was focused on gathering mechanistic biological insights. The early findings now pose another clear challenge, finding ways to effectively use this kind of information to develop diagnostics.
