Hi, I want to ask that most of the microarray data-based studies are conducted by using Affymetrix data. Although there are many other platforms on which microarray analysis is being carried out then why Affymetrix is preferred in most of the studies. Is there any reason for this biasness?

I think you could get the answers from the following aspects: 1) For most of the species, Affymetrix was usually among the platforms that gave solutions at the earliest time. 2) Prices were competitive. 3) Researchers prefer platforms with more users, to make their data easier to be compared with other researchers.

Thank u for your concern. What would be the reasons for bioinformatics based research?

That question doesn't make sense to me, can you elaborate?
