What are the applications of reporter gene?

Reporter Cell Line - HeLa is a recombinant human cervical cancer cell line which stably expresses luciferase reporter gene under the control of glucocorticoid receptor response element. It is designed for monitoring the activation of glucocorticoid receptor pathway triggered by stimuli.

A variety of reporter and selectable marker genes are used extensively in diagnostic assay to evaluate stage of diseases and drug resistance.more rapid and more sensitive assays continue to evolve and new reporter genes and more sophisticated vectors are
designed and marked, combined with advanced detection methods therefore reporter gene technology will continue to remain as one of the most useful methods for understanding intracellular signaling transduction, molecular basis of diseases and therapeutic evaluation.

Which is from genomics data analysis.
