- cDNA microarrays containing 1443 Arabidopsis thaliana genes were analyzed for expression profiles in major organs of Arabidopsis plants. Novel expression profiles were identified for many coding sequences with putative gene identifications. Expression patterns of novel sequences provided clues to their possible functions. The results demonstrate how microarrays containing a large number of Arabidopsis genes can provide a powerful tool for plant gene discovery, functional analysis and elucidation of genetic regulatory networks.
