mRNA microarray N2 Embryos

C. elegans N2 Embryo mRNA Expression (Henikoff project)

General Description

C. elegans N2 Embryos were collected for mRNA expression tiling arrays. poly A+ RNA was isolated and used to synthesize single-stranded cDNA probes.
Labeled cDNA and labeled genomic DNA were hybridized to NimbleGen
microarrays (2-color hybridizations). The hybridization signal was compared between genomic DNA and cDNA.  Scaled log2(ratios) of signal intensity are shown.
