"Hacking the genome"

Like computer hackers who cooperate in developing and using tools to understand and manipulate the inner workings of computer software, researchers are developing sophisticated biological methods that will allow them to crack the function of the genome.

Daniel Evanko shortly writes about two methods to probe the function of the genome: cDNA sequencing and microarray hybridization. It’s in Nature Methods 3, 495 (2006): abstractfull text

(a post just to show that biologists are also hacking their stuff)
