Eisen stayed at Harvard for graduate college, unlocking the three-dimensional structures of proteins.

In 1996, all over time he got his Ph.D. in biophysics, he discovered of an exciting brand new technology. David Botstein, a celebrated scientist who was at Boston on company, revealed him a DNA microarray, or “gene chip,” produced by their colleague Pat Brown at Stanford.

Brown had create a robotic dispenser that could deposit moment levels of thousands of specific genes onto an individual glass fall (the chip). A tumor—and seeing which parts of the chip it adhered to, a researcher could get a big-picture glimpse of which genes were being expressed in the tumor cells by flooding the slide with fluorescently labeled genetic material derived from a living sample—say. 继续阅读“Eisen stayed at Harvard for graduate college, unlocking the three-dimensional structures of proteins.”
