The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) chips, arrays or microarrays are powerful new tools, designed and built based on genomic sequence information, that are changing the face of biological and biomedical research. The arrays enable massively parallel measurements of gene expression and genetic variation, and are dramatically increasing our understanding of biology and disease, and promise to have a great impact on drug development and the practice of medicine.
