Gene chip

Recommended reading:   Climate Change and Microbial Ecology | Polymerase Chain Reaction | SUMOylation and Ubiquitination
In microarrays, the DNA oligonucleotides are attached to a solid surface such as glass or a silicon chip, in which case they are commonly known as gene chips.

Gene chips can be used to measure changes in expression levels, to detect single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, in genotyping or in resequencing mutant genomes, and for many other purposes.

The applications of gene chips in the areas of molecular biology, biotechnology, medicine and bioscience are discussed in a new two-volume book published recently:

Volume 1: Lab-on-a-Chip Technology: Fabrication and Microfluidics
Volume 2: Lab-on-a-Chip Technology: Biomolecular Separation and Analysis
