Based on the concept of simultaneously studying the expression of a large number of genes, a DNA microarray is a chip on which numerous probes are placed for hybridization with a tissue sample. Biological complexity encoded by a deluge of microarray data is being translated into all sorts of computational, statistical, or mathematical problems bearing on biological issues ranging from genetic control to signal transduction to metabolism. Microarray data mining is aimed to identify biologically significant genes and find patterns that reveal molecular network dynamics for reconstruction of genetic regulatory networks and pertinent metabolic pathways.
