Microarrays

Zhili He presents a new book on Microarrays: Current Technology, Innovations and Applications
Written by expert authors this book is focused on current microarray technologies and their applications in environmental microbiology. In the first chapter microarray technologies and applications are briefly introduced and in following chapters microarray probe design, development and evaluation, and data analysis are described in detail. In later chapters, more attention is paid to phylogenetic arrays (e.g., PhyloChip) and functional gene arrays (e.g., GeoChip). These generic tools for analyzing microbial communities from disparate environments, ecosystems, and habitats including soil, water, sediment, animals and humans, are described in detail with examples of specific applications. Also included are microarrays for analyzing microbial communities from specific environments, such as soil, bioleaching ecosystems, and human microbiomes, and microarrays for detecting specific microorganisms (e.g., pathogens) in the environment. The authors also discuss the advantages and limitations of microarray technologies compared to high throughput sequencing technologies. This book is a valuable and useful source of information about microarrays for microbial community analysis and is recommended for anyone working on microbial communities, biofilms or environmental microbiology. read more ...
