Moving Target: CNVs in Disease

Premium

Over the past year, a slew of papers emerged linking copy number variation to a host of diseases. It's no wonder that studies linking insertions and deletions to disease etiology continue to multiply. New systems biology tools, from high-density SNP and CNV chips to next-gen sequencing, are moving scientists not only into genome-wide CNV analysis, but also to performing CNV association studies to learn how previously undetectable CNVs might contribute to disease susceptibility.
