James P. McDonald Week 6 Journal

James P. McDonald


  1. What aspect of this assignment came most easily to you?
    • Determining what the color and shade of the spots would be on the chip when looking at the calculated ratios of the genes.
  2. What aspect of this assignment was the most challenging for you?
    • No specific part of the assignment was especially difficult. It just took time to get through the paper and take out specific pieces of information that I analyzed to answer the assignment questions.
  3. What (yet) do you not understand?
    • I don't think there was any part of this paper or the assignment that I did not understand. I don't know a lot about computer programming so I don't think I would understand how people have developed programs to interpret and simplify the massive amounts of data present on the microarray chips.
  4. What aspect of microarrays would you like to know more about?
    • I would like to know how microarrays could someday be used to determine the the traits of a person or show how a person's genome could point to the potential for contracting diseases. I think this could be very interesting and useful information to have about a specific individual.
