Monitoring the expression of thousands of genes simultaneously is possible with DNA microarray analysis. A DNA microarray consists of thousands of individual, closely packed gene- specific sequences attached to the surface of a glass microscopic slide. By coupling microarray analysis with the results from genome sequencing projects, researchers can analyze the global patterns of gene expression of an organism during specific physiological responses or developmental processes.
