To all investigators involved in microarray technologies:

The 1999/2000 ABRF MICROARRAY RESEARCH GROUP STUDY is open for submissions as
of December 10, 1999.  The goal of this study is to build a current picture of
the microarray analysis world.  Microarray analysis is a fast developing
field.  New methods and instrumentation are being constantly introduced
and the
number of investigators using the technology is rapidly expanding.  We are
focusing on both Affymetrix and cDNA related technologies.  Laboratories using
these technologies can participate in our study by filling out a web based
survey form.  The form is used to collect information such as instrumentation,
protocols, staffing, funding, and throughput.  This data will be analyzed to
build a current profile of microarray analysis laboratories.  The survey from
is posted at http://brcweb.bio.cornell.edu/surveys/microsurvey.html.

The survey is geared to gathering information from academic, pharmaceutical,
and commercial laboratories that offer microarray technologies as a shared
resource.  Individual laboratories that have these technologies are also
welcome to participate in the survey.  In addition, microarray instrument and
related manufacturers are welcome to submit data.  However, data from
manufacturers must be clearly identified and will be analyzed separately from
the pool of data submitted anonymously by all other laboratories.

An analysis of data submitted to this survey will be presented at the ABRF2000
meeting in February 2000 (http://www.faseb.org/meetings/abrf2000) and will
then be posted on the web.

We appreciate your participation in this study.
