Abstract

With the deciphering of whole genomes, a tremendous amount of data has been made available for research. In order to analyze all this information within a reasonable time frame and at reasonable cost, new technologies in DNA analysis as well as enzyme assays have been developed in the last few years in a symbiosis of biological, automation and miniaturization technologies. Examples are chip technologies for DNA analysis and microplate enzyme assays for high-throughput screening. Applications in biomedical research and in microbial diagnostics were presented.
