In the past few decades, the advances in technology provided the scientists with the ability to analyse the expression of a gene inside a cell, a tissue or an organism. This ability provided access to vast amount of information about how our bodies function.
Gene expression analysis guides the scientists on several issues such as identification of personalised treatment strategies, monitoring patients’ response to medications, identification of individuals’ propensity to certain diseases and so on. Depending on the nature of the issue in hand, gene expression analysis can be performed using microarray technologies or next generation sequencing technologies. While microarray technologies allow scientists to measure the expression of previously known and identified genes, next generation sequencing technologies allow scientists to measure the expression of any gene.
Epigenetiks offers both next generation sequencing based and microarray based gene expression analysis services depending on the nature of your problem.
