Recent advances in DNA microarray technology have opened the door for large-scale gene expression screening, functional analysis and genomic profiling. Microarrays offer a new opportunity for genome-wide studies and are quickly revolutionizing biological analyses. This review will focus on several important issues related to Xenopus DNA microarray technology, including the advantages of using this model system for array studies, the current status of Xenopus microarrays, experimental designs, and the future of this method in the Xenopus field.
