  • Publication number: 20060040279
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for determining the physiological state of cells isolated from an organism of interest utilizing chips to which nucleic acid probes are attached. In preferred embodiments of the invention, the cells undergo a biological process and the physiological state of the cells is determined at various points in time throughout the biological process.
