Reporter genes are widely used as a rapid and convenient means of measuring molecular genetic events. Their role in experimental strategies has expanded from analysis of the DNA sequences mediating RNA transcription to the broader ensemble of molecular events that define phenotype expression. The several genetic reporters available today impart a range of performance criteria to choose from, including assay convenience and reliability, sensitivity, linearity, simplicity and dynamics.
