Microarray Technology promises to monitor the whole genome on a single chip.This can help research all over the world because scientists would visualize the interactions of thousands of genes simultaneously and would also have an opportunity to understand the various mechanisms of formation of the myriad proteins and enzymes so crucial for the body.this technology is also called genome chip indicating that it is meant to monitor the whole genome on a single chip.Further advances in this field will serve as a boon to the scientific community in general and to the world as a whole.
Dear Biospot colleagues,I feel it is a huge topic to discuss about it, but iwill try to say little bit about my experiences inthis field. Peptide arryas is a fascinating field nowadays and also in future which is going to shapethe research world in to a new era of research. Manyresearchers are attracted by this field and are putting their efforts in this area to bring theirnightmares true. Recently i had been to a conferenceat Alexandria, Virginia, USA where the main focus wason this topic. I have met people who are working inthis field and was amazed to see their data. As all ofyou know the differences between DNA and proteinarrays just i will highlight where these peptidearrays are playing to be a major role.1. Infectious diseases chip: eg, to see the B-cell andT- cell responses at protein level in patients with Tubercuclosis, HIV and in other diseases.2. Human cytokine Chip: To see the cytoking responsesduring infections3. Matrix metalloproteinases chip: To check how theyare regulated in patients with cancer before and aftertreatment.4. Phospho chip: where you can detect phosphorylatedtyrosine residues which can be found in some cancersor during some infections.5. Signaling molecules chipSo do not wait, try to put some ideas in this area andmake this new era of research field to be a fruitfulone.Regards,Nalini
Dear All, Thank you Nalini for guest moderating the topic and I too agree the same with Nalini's and Rajiv's comments.I was just wondering if we could have a comparative genome assay for microarrays, thereby we could have interactome studies of a genome against the other genome at a given time. Hope we have it soon!Best,Prash
