In today's field of genomics, traditional gene-by-gene approach is not adequate to meet the demand of processing information generated from mapping the complex biology of the human genome. More global views of analyzing the magnitude of information are necessary, such as with microarrays. Microarray technology today is rapidly uncovering broad patterns of genetic activity and showing insight into gene functions, processes, and pathways. With the growing technology, imminent knowledge is being generated looking into transcriptional processes and biological mechanisms from many different organisms and phylogeny. Many tools are being developed to assist with the analysis of such high-throughput data, many applications are being utilized by this technology, and the field is growing and expanding rapidly to accommodate the expanding genomics era.
