Gene expression profiling

Gene expression profiling is the determination of the pattern of genes expressed, at the level of transcription, under specific circumstances or in a specific cell to give a global picture of cellular function. Techniques to measure this include DNA microarrays which measure the relative activity of previously identified target genes, or sequencing technologies that allow profiling of all active genes.
