I got an e-mail in my box about the presentation of Phenotype MicroArrays (PM) at our department. I will not be able to attend it, but this site describes the idea behind it. This "tool" is a nice addition to a set of DNA/RNA and protein arrays. Adding PM means that we can move one layer above the gene-protein layer. However, as my interest often lies in ultimate phenotype of an individual that we observe, we are still some layers far from deciphering the role of genes on the ultimate phenotype.
