The new and technically challenging research tool enables scientists to assess expression levels of a large subset of the human genes in a cell or tissue.

The NCI intends for the DNA microarray laboratories to provide technical support to cancer researchers and to make the technology widely available so that it is rapidly applied to investigating a broad range of critical problems in cancer research.
