AIM[edit]

By explaning step by step how an array is done, maybe it may be clearer to readers trying to understand them. --Squidonius (talk) 22:46, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

I did not give a how-to list but I tryed to be more encompassing as possible, explaining how does hybridization occur (answering the questions "how is the liquid stuff kept on it?" and other common questions) --Squidonius (talk) 22:50, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
Rather than trying to be all-encompassing, perhaps it would be clearer to take one specific protocol (say, DNA with an Affymetrics GeneChip, or some other common setup) and give the procedure for that. Then, in a later section we can explain other possibilities (RNA, ChIP, etc).
Also, I think we should focus on the function of each reagent, rather than the chemical name. For instance, "florescent marker" instead of "aminoallyl-UTP". Our goal should be to clarify the general procedure, not to provide a protocol which could be copied in the lab. --Quantum7 21:30, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

RT[edit]

The first use of the abbreviation RT is not connected to a term. Probably here it means reverse transcription and not real-time? --88.74.235.66 (talk) 13:31, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
