Method (primary source) To understand the molecular basis of these metabolic cycles, researchers performed microarray analysis of gene expression and assessed whether any genes were expressed periodically.
Comments Note-although ref cites primary source, value wasn't located there. Instead on p.1158 left column 2nd paragraph of primary source the following value appears: "mRNAs for over 60% of annotated yeast transcription factors fluctuated in abundance as a function of the YMC (yeast metabolic cycle)".
