  • Gene expression profiling is a powerful tool to identify and target markers associated with disease or therapy
  • Microarrays provide a high-throughput means to survey the range of expression changes within a given experiment
  • Microarray data is prone to variance from experiment to experiment, lab to lab, platform to platform
  • Microarray data has a resolution limit
  • Microarray data must be validated with more sensitive, independent, and quantitative analysis tools

Researchers are still confronted with difficult questions after completing microarray experiments: how to validate the data that has been generated? Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Inaugural From Gene Expression Profiling To Validated Biology explores what comes next in any microarray experiment. How will standards be reached?
