Microarray datasets are large and demand sophisticated handling and high precision analysis. This Special Issue will be concerned, therefore, with the range of computational modeling and analytical techniques used to extract information from these technologies, as well as new directions in their development and use. Topics on which submissions are invited include, but are not limited to: Data mining/pre-processing; pattern recognition, cluster analysis and validation; modeling uncertainty and identifying outliers in data; multivariate and non-standard statistical techniques; integrated data analysis, together with reconciliation of data types-evaluation and comparison; genome-wide analyses; gene expression and model-based analysis; serial, co-expression and enrichment analysis; computational algorithms, heuristics and novel tools in microarray modeling and analysis, including genetic, evolutionary, clustering/segmentation, E-M and parallel methods inter alia; network-based approaches and GRNs, including time-conditioned data and dynamic networks; visualization and interpretation of microarray expression data.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Microarrays is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
