Workshop on theory and
practice on Gene-Array technology
Monday September 6-2004
“Gene expression profiling using microarrays has
become a popular molecular biological approach in the
last few years. The availability of complete genome
sequence information along with improved technological
advances has created a situation where these techniques
can be applied in a broad manner, thereby facilitating
profiling of large sections of the transcriptosome” (Microarrays
Methods and Applications: Nuts & Bolts Gary Hardiman,
The “Workshop on theory and practice on Gene-Array
technology” will provide the participants with
knowledge about experimental design, molecular biology
principles and methodologies in gene-array
experiments. For the symposium a team of speakers from
academic institutions and experts from major companies
involved in product development in molecular biology
field have been put together.
Participants will learn about all most recent
development of the technology. In addition, a tutorial
program will be organized to guide the participants
through the practice of gene-array.
Obtaining a maximal value from gene array experiment
involves a team effort that includes tight collaboration
between biologists, bioinformatics and software
engineers. The NETTAB2004 will offer the unique
opportunity to bring together these different scientific
