Application of Microarray technology in research and diagnostics: differential expression catalogs and molecular signatures

Date: 23-06-2015    Supervisor: Ole Winther

The overall purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the use of microarray analysis to investigate the transcriptome of human cancers and human follicular cells and define the correlation between expression of human genes and specific cancer types as well as the developmental competence of the oocyte and its surrounding follicular cells. Furthermore use the retrieved information about gene expression and disease and function to formulate and specify classification models, which may aid in the translation of genomic research into clinical application.
