You need to handle the RowDataBound event of your gridview. You can then interrogate the data being bound to the current row and act accordingly.

For example:
        protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                DataRowView row = e.Row.DataItem as DataRowView;
                if (row["SomeColumn"].ToString() == "SomeValue")
                {
                    e.Row.Cells[0].Attributes.Add("class", "highlighted");
                }
            }
        }

Yes. So if you had something like the following in your style sheet then that would get applied to the cell (or row if you apply it at that level):
.highlighted { background-color: yellow; }
