Purpose: End-users' underlying reasons for using DNA microarray analysis across 13 major fields (biotechnology, chemicals, clinical or hospital, defence, energy, environmental, food and drink, forensics, geology, government, healthcare, natural products, pharmaceuticals, research institutes, security, university), each ranked according to their relative importance.
The trial found that microarray analysis, which compares a fetus's DNA with a normal (control) DNA, performed as well as karyotyping in identifying common aneuploidies (an abnormal number of chromosomes--an extra or missing chromosome causes genetic disorders such as Down syndrome and Edwards syndrome); it also identified additional abnormalities undetected by karyotyping.
Western blot analysis was used as an additional validation of the microarray analysis and as a way to find potential markers for early diagnosis of BTCC.

The researchers compared the findings from three clinical genetic tests: G-banded karyotype and fragile X testing, the current standard battery of genetic testing, and chromosomal microarray analysis, for which testing guidelines have not yet been established.
In addition, testes were obtained from boars at 3 days (n = 4), 2 weeks (n = 3), 7 weeks (n = 2), and 13 weeks (n = 6) of age for comparison of gene expression using DNA microarray analysis.
Microarray analysis to obtain antibody reactivity profiles has also been shown to be useful in vaccine development against other organisms.
Kunio Shiota, a professor of cellular biochemistry at the University of Tokyo and one of the co-organizers of the November 2005 Tokyo conference, says epigenetic advances will rely in part on a range of processes that are slowly becoming familiar to more researchers--massively parallel signature sequencing (MPSS), chromatin immunoprecipitation microarray analysis (ChIP-chip), DNA adenine methyltransferase identification (Dam-ID), protein binding microarrays (PBM), DNA immunoprecipitation microarray analysis (DIP-chip), and more.
The protein microarray analysis was performed with 149 purified recombinant proteins of Y.
