Sandra Porter says that she was content to avoid microarrays for a long while, with the articles questioning reliability and stories coming out of labs. However, she's had a change of heart. "Then Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) came along. It turned out that many of the data analysis techniques developed for microarrays were useful for analyzing Next Gen data. I couldn't avoid them anymore," Porter writes. "It was time to bite the bullet and learn about microarrays."
