To identify common variants that are associated with breast size, the authors conducted a large-scale genotyping association meta-analysis in 7,169 women of European descent across three independent sample collections with digital or screen film mammograms. The samples were genotyped on iCOGS, a custom Illumina iSelect genotyping array. In addition to replicating previous findings, they identified a locus at 22q13 that may be associated with female breast size

The authors used Luminex bead array technology to compare serum and tear inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine levels of rosacea patients with the healthy controls and to evaluate the correlation of tear cytokine levels with tear function parameters.

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of post-hatch dietary mineral supplementation on performance, tissue mineral content, and intestinal gene expression profiles in 21-day-old broiler chicks. Intestinal gene expression profiling was examined using the Affymetrix GeneChip chicken genome array. The authors found that diets fed for the 96-hour, post-hatch had long-term effects on gene expression.
