GeneChip Tomato Genome Array
Learn more about the GeneChip Tomato Genome Array
Tomato is an important food crop worldwide, and the GeneChip® Tomato Genome Array is designed specifically to monitor gene expression in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum). The comprehensive array consists of over 10,000 L. esculentum probe sets to interrogate over 9,200 L. esculentum transcripts. The Tomato Genome Array is particularly useful for agriculture researchers studying tomato genetics.
This array was created in collaboration with leading tomato researchers through the Affymetrix GeneChip® Consortia Program. Sequence information for this array was selected from public data sources including Lycopersicon esculentum UniGene Build #20 (October 3, 2004) and GenBank® mRNAs up to November 5, 2004.
