DNA microarrays have been a powerful method to examine genomic data since 1995. Microarrays are combined with mature data analysis tools to rapidly and inexpensively provide valuable insights to examine gene expression, copy number variation, SNP analysis and miRNA analysis. These talks will describe some of the microarray currently tools available at UNC to perform genomics analysis.
