    We developed an RNA microarray protocol in which total RNA from a microbial community was attached to a slide glass, and rRNA was detected by fluorescently labeled oligonucleotide probes. The RNA microarray requires only 4 h for hybridization and enables double staining and estimating relative abundance of rRNA.
