The Institute for Genomics & Systems Biology (IGBS) at the University of Chicago invites faculty,
staff and students to participate in a special seminar describing our new in micro western array
technology. This new technology is designed to provide similar information as traditional western
blots but, because of the greatly reduced sample and antibody requirements, the approach allows
for the targeted investigation of 10s to 1000s of pre-selected protein targets from 10s to 100s of
biological samples (i.e. cultured cells and tissues). Current and past studies on the MWA
platform at IGSB comprise diverse fields including cancer biology, cardiology, and immunology.
Moreover, successfully run sample types have included human and mouse cell lines, human
tissue, mouse tissue, and whole Drosophila lysates.

Lunch will be provided. If you wish to participate in this seminar, please send your request to
Aharon Solomon, IGSB Research Director, at so we have an accurate
