Gene Expression - Techniques and Tools

Techniques and Tools

The following experimental techniques are used to measure gene expression and are listed in roughly chronological order, starting with the older, more established technologies. They are divided into two groups based on their degree of multiplexity.

  • Low-to-mid-plex techniques:
    • Reporter gene
    • Northern blot
    • Western blot
    • Fluorescent in situ hybridization
    • Reverse transcription PCR
  • Higher-plex techniques:
    • SAGE
    • DNA microarray
    • Tiling array
    • RNA-Seq

Famous quotes containing the words tools and/or techniques:

    At the utmost, the active-minded young man should ask of his teacher only mastery of his tools. The young man himself, the subject of education, is a certain form of energy; the object to be gained is economy of his force; the training is partly the clearing away of obstacles, partly the direct application of effort. Once acquired, the tools and models may be thrown away.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    The techniques of opening conversation are universal. I knew long ago and rediscovered that the best way to attract attention, help, and conversation is to be lost. A man who seeing his mother starving to death on a path kicks her in the stomach to clear the way, will cheerfully devote several hours of his time giving wrong directions to a total stranger who claims to be lost.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)
