MicrorarrayDetection: Detecting biological agents with DNA Micorarray

DNA-Microarrays, well known for measuring gene expression levels, can be used for detecting presence or absence of biological targets (viruses of bacteria) from hybridization patterns of oligonucleotide probes and genomic DNA of agents. Due to sequence similarity of possible targets the use of non-unique oligonucleotides becomes necessary. With use of statistical group testing and phylogenetic information about targets, even the detection of novel targets becomes viable.
