"One could envision specifically targeting mosquito larvae that carry human diseases such as West Nile or malaria, while leaving other insects and vertebrates unharmed," says King. ...

Different microarray systems more alike than previously thought

...s, three used "homemade" versions called two-color spotted cDNA arrays, and two used another commercial platform called two-color long oligonucleotide arrays. In general, the study showed Affymetrix GeneChips generated more reproducible data than the other microarrays. But the researchers also showed that a...

Study: 'homemade' gene expression technology unreliable
