Microarrays represent a modern powerful technology, which have potential applications in many areas of biological research and provide new insights into the genomics and transcriptomics of living systems. The aim of this review is to describe the application of microarray technology for Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) research. The main focus points include a summary of results obtained for MAP using microarrays, examination of the fields of MAP research which are currently being investigated and possible areas of future research. This article is divided into two parts according to the type of nucleic acid used for array hybridisation. Articles related to MAP research using microarray technology are then divided according to the field of study, such as comparative genome analysis, diagnostics, expression or environmental studies.
