Section 4.1 Introduction
- What happened to my home brew?
- What can we learn from stressed out yeast?
- Why are there so many copies of some genes
but not others?
- How well do promoters control gene expression?
- Are promoters able to work in reverse?

between expression patterns?
4.3 How do you cluster genes?
Section 4.2 Alternative
Uses of DNA Microarrays
- Why do so many different genes share the
same expression profile?
- Can cells verify their own genes?
4.4 Is it useful to compare the columns
of a gene expression matrix?
