Wang (molecular medicine, Case Western Reserve U., Cleveland) introduces this volume as covering both basic and advanced approaches to the study and characterization of cardiovascular disease, a disease of epidemic proportions in the developed and developing world. International contributors to 15 chapters present step-by-step instructions for the most important protocols in molecular medicine applied in cardiovascular research, starting with microarray See micro array.
microarray - A technique for performing many DNA experiments in parallel. Nothing to do with computers. analysis. The final chapter addresses the role and medical, but not political controversies surrounding experimental and clinical applications of stem cells stem cells, unspecialized human or animal cells that can produce mature specialized body cells and at the same time replicate themselves. Embryonic stem cells are derived from a blastocyst (the blastula typical of placental mammals; see embryo), which is very young . The volume includes the table of contents for v.1, illustrations of the set up and staining staining /stain·ing/ (stan´ing)
