Affymetrix launched the GeneChip Mouse and Rat Gene 1.0 ST Arrays, adding to the Gene 1.0 ST Array System. The arrays use the Whole Transcript (WT) Sense Target Labeling Assay to deliver an accurate view of a gene’s total transcriptional activity, not just the 3’ end of a gene like traditional expression array designs. The Gene 1.0 ST Arrays complement the GeneChip Exon 1.0 ST Arrays. The newest Gene 1.0 ST Arrays incorporate the latest available mouse and rat genome sequence information and feature a simplified design strategy. Both the Mouse and Rat 1.0 ST Arrays contain more than 720,000 probes that interrogate more than 27,000 well-annotated genes.
