NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – By combining optical mapping with DNA sequencing, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and elsewhere were able to uncover extensive genomic variation within a multiple myeloma patient.

UW-Madison's David Schwartz and his colleagues analyzed a patient's tumor at two time points alongside normal tissue from that patient to uncover structural variants, as they reported in a paper to appear online at the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week.
