Gene expression profiling refers to the simultaneous measurement of the expression levels of a large number of genes (often all genes in a genome), typically in multiple experiments spanning a variety of cell types, treatments, or environmental conditions. Expression profiling is accomplished by assaying mRNA levels with microarrays or next-generation sequencing technologies (RNA-seq). This introduction describes normalization and analysis of data generated from microarray or RNA-seq experiments.
