What's on a microarray, Patrick Brown

Interviewee: Pat Brown. Pat Brown talks about how the 30,000 spots on the microarray represent genes. (DNAi Location: Applications > Genes and medicine > genetic profiling > Patrick Brown > What's on a microarray)

So this is how we represent the human genome in a microarray. It, as you can see there are about thirty thousand spots representing roughly the thirty thousand genes that we currently recognize in the human genome, and this gives us a way to, whenever we look at a cell or a tissue sample, to recognize which genes are being used and how they're being used in a particular cell or a tissue or a process.
