Abstract Microarrays enable high-throughput parallel gene expression analysis, and their use has grown exponentially during the past decade. We are now in a position where individual experiments could benefit from using the swelling public data repositories to allow microarrays to progress from being a hypothesis-generating tool to a powerful resource that can be used to test hypothesis about biology. Comparative microarray analysis could better distinguish phenotypes from associated phenotypes; identify valid differentially expressed genes by combining many studies; test new hypothesis; and discover fundamental patterns of gene regulation. This review aims to describe the additional methodology needed for such comparative microarray analysis, and we identify and discuss a number of problems such as loss of published data, lack of annotations, and variable array quality, which need to be solved before comparative microarray analysis can be used in a more systematic and powerful manner.
