    Mammalian cells coordinately regulate their gene expression programmes to ensure appropriate responses to stimuli. While transcriptional events provide an important level of gene expression regulation, modulation of messenger RNA (mRNA) decay provides an additional critical regulatory step. Much...

    Background: A limiting factor of cDNA microarray technology is the need for a substantial amount of RNA per labeling reaction. Thus, 20-200 micro-grams total RNA or 0.5-2 micro-grams poly (A) RNA is typically required for monitoring gene expression. In addition, gene expression profiles from...

    The main goal of microarray experiments is to select a small subset of genes that are differentially expressed among competing mRNA samples. For a given set of such mRNA samples, it is possible to consider a number of two-color cDNA microarray designs with a fixed number of arrays. Appropriate...
