An invitation to microarray researchers,

The deadline for submissions to the new ABRF MICROARRAY RESEARCH GROUP
2000-2001 STUDY
has been extended to Wed., Jan. 10, 2001.

Please note that this is a new study.  Please submit data to this study
even if you participated in our previous study
(which was held at the end of 1999 and the first two months of 2000).
The survey form for this new study is posted at
http://brcweb.bio.cornell.edu/marg2000/index.html.

The goal of this study is to build a current picture of the microarray
analysis
world.  The focus is on both Affymetrix GeneChip and all sources of
cDNA,
oligonucleotide, and protein microarray spotting technologies.
Laboratories
using these technologies are invited to  participate in this study by
filling out a
web based survey form.  The form is used to collect information such as
instrumentation, protocols, staffing, funding, and throughput.  This
data will
be analyzed to build a current profile of microarray analysis
laboratories.

Please note that this is not a sales or marketing survey.
The survey is being done by the Microarray Research Group of the
Association of Biomolecular
Resource Facilities (http://www.abrf.org). The results will be freely
available to the microarrays
community following analysis of the data. The survey is geared to gather
information
anonymously from academic, pharmaceutical, and commercial laboratories
that offer
microarray technologies as a shared resource; however individual
laboratories employing
these technologies are also encouraged and very welcome to participate
in the survey.

The results of our last survey are posted on the web at
http://abrf.org/ABRF/ResearchCommittees/MARG/MARG_Survey_2000_Poster.pdf.

An analysis of data submitted to this survey will be presented at the
ABRF2001
meeting in February 2001 (http://www.faseb.org/meetings/abrf2001) and
will then
be posted on the web.

We appreciate your participation in this study.
