Tomato is an important food crop worldwide, and the GeneChip™ Tomato Genome Array is designed specifically to monitor gene expression in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum). The comprehensive array consists of over 10,000 L. esculentum probe sets to interrogate over 9,200 L. esculentum transcripts. The Tomato Genome Array is particularly useful for agriculture researchers studying tomato genetics.
This array was created in collaboration with leading tomato researchers through the GeneChip Consortia Program. Sequence information for this array was selected from public data sources including Lycopersicon esculentum UniGene Build #20 (October 3, 2004) and GenBank™ mRNAs up to November 5, 2004.
Instrument Software Requirements • GeneChip Scanner 3000, enabled for High-Resolution Scanning* or GeneChip Scanner 3000 7G • GeneChip Operating Software (GCOS) v1.1.1, which contains the High-Resolution Scanning Update
* GeneChip Scanner 3000 High-Resolution Update is standard on all instruments shipped starting in September 2003 with serial number series 502. Previous versions, such as serial number series 501, will require the GeneChip Scanner 3000 High-Resolution Update, Catalog Number 00-0110, to be installed.
