Missed Paper

I seemed to have missed this with it’s stealth release over the festive season. A fantastic experiment from Pavel Tomancak’s lab.  There is a related paper from Diethard Tautz in the same issue.

Systems Biology Reviews

The 18th March issue of Cell is devoted to Systems Biology &  includes a number of interesting reviews.


Our Microarray book published in Chinese!

I was startled to receive through the post today a few Chinese language copies of Microarray Technology in Practice from the publisher!

A pleasant surprise indeed though obviously we can’t vouch for the reliability of the translation.

INDAC paper

After a timescale bordering on the geological, the paper describing our development of the INDAC array probe set and the techniques for evaluating specificity is finally in press.  Well done everyone – especially Peter Sykacek for his dogged determination 🙂
