The concurrent development of high-density array technologies and the complete sequencing of a number of microbial genomes is providing the opportunity to comprehensively and efficiently survey the transcription profile of microorganisms under different conditions and well-defined genotypes. Microarray-based studies are uncovering broad patterns of genetic activity, providing new understanding of gene functions and, in some cases, generating unexpected insight into transcriptional processes and biological mechanisms. One topic that has come to the forefront is how best to effectively manage and interpret the large data sets being generated. Although progress has been made, this remains a challenging opportunity for functional genomics research.
