The dedication of differentially expressed genes is an essential prerequisite in several areas of biomolecular research such as, for exampe, those pertaining to cell differentiation, development or neoplastic transformation. Most fundamental biological processes depend, in fact, on programs of differential gene expression, i.e., they are determined by the “choice” of which genes are expressed in a particular cell population at a given time.
