From the reviews:

"The book offers a broad coverage of many of the most important aspects of microarray technology ... . Despite the wide field broached by this book, one of its chief successes lies with the fact that in each chapter the authors provide a clear review of every step of the technique, including both its potential and pitfalls. This allows all readers, especially beginners, to understand the development and impact of this important technique. ... Readers will find this beginner's guide book very informative ... ." (Guillermina Lopez-Bendito, Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy, Vol. 30, 2005)
