The decline of the microarray

Via David Nusinow on Google+:

When can we expect the last damn microarray paper? (http://jermdemo.blogspot.com/2012/01/when-can-we-expect-last-damn-microarray.html)

2016 for the last microarray paper? Sounds a bit optimistic, but we can dream. Of course there will likely be niche uses for microarrays for a while yet (e.g. cheap linkage analysis in a pedigree, as in my last post…) — the analysis here is just counting usage of the word in the title (presumably indicating the technology is a major focus of the paper).
