Back cover copy

Microarray technology is now well established in laboratories all over the world, both for rapid detection of genetic mutations and, increasingly, for simultaneously analyzing the expression of a large number of proteins. In Microarrays in Clinical Diagnostics, a panel of academic and industrial investigators surveys the new world of microarray technology, describing in step-by-step detail diverse DNA and protein assays in clinical laboratories using state-of-the-art technologies. The advanced tools and methods described are designed for mRNA expression analysis, SNP analysis, identification and quantification of proteins, and for studies of protein-protein interactions. Among the highlights are universal arrays, antibody microarrays, direct labeling approaches, and quality control techniques for protein microarray-based analysis. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Biology(TM) series format, each offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and highly practical, Microarrays in Clinical Diagnostics combines a comprehensive collection of cutting-edge technologies with detailed laboratory methods to help clinical laboratory researchers design and perform microarray experiments for DNA and protein analysis, diagnostic testing, and cancer research.

Review Text

From the reviews:

"a volume for the specialist with a fascination for the optimal collection and analysis of large data sets in microarray format."-SGM Quarterly

"...there is no other comparable book on the market...highly recommended to anyone interested in this rapidly evolving field of technology..." - Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal

"Microarray technology has become a mainstay of biological research. ... The book is divided into 15 chapters ... . Overall this book offers a good read to both clinicians and researchers at the bench who wish to enter the field of microarrays. The format of the book also provides a good roadmap to graduate students wishing to translate aspects of their research to methods amenable to microarrays." (Sridar V. Chittur, Clinical Chemistry, Vol. 52 (6), June, 2006)

"Microarrays in Clinical Diagnostics ... is a collection of fifteen chapters by authors from both industry and academia, surveying current applications of microarray-based technologies in diagnostics ... . provides protocols in the successful style of the Methods in Molecular Biology series, with clarity and sufficient technical detail so that both novice and current microarray users are sure to benefit from this book." (Nicolas Winssinger, ChemMedChem, Issue 1, 2006)
