Comprehensive measurement of gene expression using high-density nucleic acid arrays (i.e. microarrays) has become an important tool for investigating the molecular differences in clinical and research samples. Consequently, inclusion of discussion in biochemistry, molecular biology, or other appropriate courses of microarray technologies has become essential in training the modern scientist. The following article offers preparatory and problem-solving questions for engaging students in the understanding of microarray technologies for use in conjunction with other course materials relating to discussions of microarray technology.
