Abstract

The microarray technology is based on analytical tools that parallelize the quantitative and qualitative analysis of nucleic acids, proteins and tissue sections one of its more recent evolutions-. By miniaturizing the size of the reaction and sensing area, microarrays allow to assess at the activity of thousands of genes in a given tissue or cell line at once in a rapid and quantitative way, and to carry out serial comparative tests in multiple samples. These tools, that stem from the innovations resulting from the technological improvements and knowledge arising from the genome sequencing projects, can be considered as a combinatorial technique that can rapidly provide significant information about complex cellular pathways and processes within one or few ‘‘mass scale’’ and comprehensive testing of a biological sample’s composition.
