The DNA needs to be denatured so it can bind to the glass slide as a single strand. 3. DNA chips and Southern blots are both used to determine sequences of DNA. Southern blots include a mixture of known and unknown DNAs, while DNA chips are of know sequence. Southern blotting requires the use of probes, but probes aren’t needed with DNA chips. It isn’t plausible to use Southern blotting on a large scale in the way that DNA chips

It looks like genes X and Y both had an initial increase in gene activity within three hours and then a decrease after 5 hours and 9 hours. 3 Questions about DeRisi paper 1. What are ribosomal and mitochondrial ribosomal genes? 2. What do they mean by canonical binding site? 1. Near the end of the paper, they talk about using microarrays in drug screening. Were they speaking hypothetically or is this being done now? Hypothetically...
