Microarray technology, via the deposition of cDNA or oligonucleotide libraries on to microscope slides for hybridisation by a labelled reverse transcribed RNA, is becoming an increasingly popular method to analyse patterns of gene expression. The production of high quality, inexpensive cDNA microarrays is critically dependent on the quality of the cDNA libraries. Full curation of the libraries is essential to allow correct interpretation of whole library arrays and efficient fabrication of complete custom arrays.
