Microarray Bioinformatics hits 200 citations on Google Scholar

The impact of my book, Microarray Bioinformatics (CUP 2003), has reached a new milestone today, achieving 200 citations on Google Scholar. I’m absolutely delighted that this book has made a positive difference to the research of so many groups. It is now, of course, increasingly out of date: DNA microarrays will continue to give way to deep sequencing technologies, and there are many new bioinformatic methods that have been developed since I wrote the book, possibly most importantly, those that integrate transcriptomic data with other data sources. Nonetheless, I would estimate that sales and citations will continue for another couple of years – a 10 year life-span for a book of this type being quite reasonable.
