Microarray experiments are costly - both in time and resources, making the careful design of experiments to generate useful gene expression data for diagnostics, target identification, screening, genotyping and other applications critical. The first and most important goal still is to design microarray experiments that yield statistically defensible results. The generation of such useful data requires effective communication between those designing and running the experiments, with those analyzing the data, to those database developers who facilitate the data handling. CHI's 6th Annual Microarray Data Analysis and Interpretation is designed to provide perspectives from each specialty, with an emphasis on how they can be integrated into a cohesive, comprehensive team to better decipher biologic pathways and determine the total “omic” picture.
