Tim Triche on Using Arrays for Cancer Research

Tim Triche, Director, Center for Personalized Medicine - Children's Hospital Los Angeles


Listen (2:36) When do you use arrays, when sequencing?

Listen (4:52) Staying power of arrays

We recently interviewed cancer researcher Tim Triche from Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Tim had two main points: First, microarrays are still a very valuable tool for research and for the clinic. Second, there are perhaps more answers for cancer research to be found in the non-coding portion of the genome than in the genes.

Here, we've compiled Tim's comments on the staying power of arrays.

For the full interview, see Part I and Part II.

Editor's Note:  In this interview, Tim refers to an older generation Affymetrix array (GeneChip(R) Exon 1.0 ST Array).  The newest array (GeneChip(R) Human Transcriptome Array 2.0) is able to measure gene and exon level expression of coding and long non-coding RNA with the ability to detect alternative splicing events.
