Agilent Launches New Arabidopsis Array; Affymetrix Expected To Counter Next Year | GenomeWeb

Agilent Technologies has introduced the first whole-genome oligonucleotide microarray for the study of Arabidopsis thaliana, the primary plant model used in gene expression research.

The microarray will enable researchers to study the gene activity associated with various biological functions, stages of growth, and response to stress in Arabidopsis. The goal of such research is to improve crop yields; enhance the quality of plant fibers, foods, and other materials; and increase plant resistance to disease and drought.
