Description

With the advent of high-throughput technologies following completion of the human genome project and similar projects, the number of genes of interest has expanded and the traditional methods for gene function analysis cannot achieve the throughput necessary for large-scale exploration. This book brings together a number of recently developed techniques for looking at gene function, including computational, biochemical and biological methods and protocols.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "'Gene Function Analysis' is volume 408 of the 'Methods in Molecular Biology' series. The aim of the book is to provide both in silico and laboratory methods for the functional analysis of the large amount of gene expression data generated from high throughput technologies such as microarrays. ... This book would certainly be a useful addition to a laboratory interested in assessing gene function through both bioinformatic and 'wet' approaches. Definitely one for the more (toxico)genomically challenged amongst us." (James Sidaway, British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Summer, 2008)show more

Back cover copy

With the advent of high-throughput technologies, the number of genes of interest has expanded and the traditional methods for gene function analysis cannot achieve the throughput necessary for large-scale exploration. In Gene Function Analysis, a select team of experts bring together a number of recently developed techniques for studying gene function. The volume begins with a variety of computational techniques, which provide an excellent point of departure for the cutting-edge experimental methods that follow. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, each chapter surveys its subject with readily reproducible laboratory protocols, a list of the necessary materials, and the popular Notes section, which contains tips for troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and timely, Gene Function Analysis offers researchers a clear guide and the important tools they need to further study the intricate human genome. "show more
