Using DNA microarrays to study cancer, Patrick Brown

Description:
Interviewee: Pat Brown. Pat Brown talks about using microarrays to discover the differences between cancer cells and healthy cells. (DNAi Location: Applications > Genes and medicine > genetic profiling > Patrick Brown > Using microarrays to study cancer)
Transcript:
Well we knew that differences in the gene expression program were largely responsible for the differences in the appearance and the behavior of the normal cells in our body, say a brain cell compared to a liver cell. And so it seemed natural that by looking systematically at the gene expression program in cancer cells, we would be able to get a better understanding of why those cells are different from their normal counterpart and why a breast cancer in one woman looks and behaves differently from a breast cancer in another woman.
