Although I never used this technique before, I hope that some day I can
afford amount of sequencing it calls for :).  My suggestion would be to
look up

Wan J.S. et al.  Cloning differentially expressed m-RNAs.  Nature
Biotechnology V.14 p.1685.(1996)

They made side-by-side comparison of subtractive hybridization,
differential display and electronic subtraction (SAGE) against each
other and gave preference to differential display.

In any event, good luck.
