What is the typical cost of carrying out a microarray experiment compared to a similar experiment using RNA-seq? For example: 10 human exon arrays versus RNA-seq for the same 10 individuals.
For microarray: cost of reagents, cost of 10 exon arrays; assume the chip scanner is present in the lab. For RNA-seq: cost of reagents, cost of sequencing at a commercial sequencing center.
I do not have any wet-lab experience so please advise how to better phrase this question.
