How to Order

In the post-genomic era SAGE (Serial Analysis of Gene Expression) is one of the most powerful tools available for global expression profiling at the mRNA level (transcriptome analysis). SAGE is also a valuable tool for gene discovery and gene network identification. Written by recognized experts in the field, this timely and authoritative volume reviews every aspect of SAGE technology including the evaluation of SAGE, the improvement and further development of SAGE methodology, the statistical analysis and mathematical modeling of SAGE data, and the practical application of SAGE in eukaryotic organisms, stem cell research, brain cells analysis, and much more.

This comprehensive book is the definitive reference volume and an essential reference for all researchers interested in or working with SAGE technology.


"This book is a thorough treatment of SAGE (Serial Analysis of Gene Expression). ... The 18 chapters in this book cover a range of applications, for example, comparing transcriptomic differences in brain territories, developmental studies in Drosophila, plant gene expression studies, and statistical analysis of SAGE data." by David Ussery, Technical University of Denmark, Microbiology Today, October 2005.

"It covers a broad range of areas" by Ju-Gyeong Kang and Paul M Hwang, Expert Rev. Mol. Diagn., (2006) 6: 137-138..
