A. nidulans and A. fumigatus-version 2 microarrays are now available from PFGRC! Thanks to the sponsorship of NIAID these 70-mer arrays (and test arrays for optimizing protocols) are available free.
Requests for microarray slides must be submitted through the PFGRC website at NIH:
Follow the link for "Request Process." You will be asked to submit a cv ("biosketch"), a brief research plan, resources and environment section and data agreement (basically that you agree to post your results on a publicly available database). This request process is in place to assure that arrays will be used and that requests from non-US labs have been (and will be) filled.
The next request deadline for the A. nidulans arrays is on Feb 15th.
Additional information is here: (http://pfgrc.tigr.org/).
