Arrays Come of Age

Premium

Just a couple of years ago, you couldn’t pass through a crowded hallway at an array conference without hearing that dreaded word: reproducibility. Now, it seems that arrays are finally coming into their own — according to a GenomeWeb survey sent out to microarray users in February, fewer than a third of respondents thought reproducibility was much of a problem. Cost, though, remains prohibitive, according to our survey data. Below are some of the highlights of our microarray snapshot.
