Executive Summary

With modern molecular biological techniques which use up to several million probes as well as high throughput protein detection, it has become quite easy to gather massive amounts of genomic and proteomic data, which need to be evaluated. In the field of gene expression and proteome analysis biologists try to discover how gene expression works. Gene expression is the process by which inheritable information of a gene, such as the DNA sequence, is turned into a functional gene product, such as a RNA or a protein. Questions like under which physiological conditions which genes have to be active and which proteins are needed or which genes lead to which proteins are tried to be solved.
