Modern research in cancer has been revolutionized by the introduction of new high-throughput methodologies such as DNA microarrays. Keeping the pace with these technologies, the bioinformatics offer new solutions for data analysis and, what is more important, it permits to formulate a new class of hypothesis inspired in systems biology, more oriented to blocks of functionally-related genes. Although software implementations for this new methodologies is new there are some options already available. Bioinformatic solutions for other high-throughput techniques such as array-CGH of large-scale genotyping is also revised.
