Why we developed the microarray, Patrick Brown

Description:
Interviewee: Patrick (Pat) Brown. Pat Brown talks about developing microarray technology for genome-wide analysis. (DNAi Location: Applications > Genes and medicine > genetic profiling > Patrick Brown > Why we developed the microarray)
Transcript:
When we started developing the microarray technology it was to enable a new method for relating sequence differences in genes to complex traits in people, that was the idea. When we began doing experiments we realized that the microarrays could be used to characterize essentially any property of a gene on a genome-wide basis, to look at the whole genome, all the genes in the genome and not only look at things like heritable differences in sequences but look at dynamic behavior of the genes.
