Expression Profiling of Novel Genes in Normal and Diseased Human Tissues

BTC 6251 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Explores gene cloning and recombinant DNA, as well as DNA polymorphism. Gene expression profiling is an important first step to understanding the potential role of novel genes in human disease. Strategies discussed include differential display and cDNA arrays employed in cancer tissues and cell lines to identify novel gene markers that are confirmed by Northern blotting and in situ hybridization. Also explores quality control measures needed to evaluate appropriately and effectively utilized human tissues in a variety of assays including TaqMan and immunohistochemistry and tissue microarray analyses.
