We pursue new, basic technologies for collecting low-cost, quantitative molecular data, useful for a variety of sequencing and/or functional genomics goals. We have developed a set of new methods for producing microarrays of Acrydite-immobilized PCR colonies and subsequent Fluorescent In Situ Sequencing (FISSEQ) on the slides. We have integrated mRNA expression data from SAGE, Chip, and microarray experiments into the ExpressDB database and developed a flexible Web-based search engine for exploring the data for clustering and DNA-motif analysis. The process also lead to insights into methodological improvements that would make such information more amenable to comparison among other laboratories.
