Using SNP microarrays and gene re-sequencing, a group of researchers from St. Jude Children's Hospital and the National Cancer Institute characterized more than 100 AML tumors, revealing a smaller-than-expected burden of copy number alterations and point mutations.

The study findings suggest the genetic variations could eventually help researchers design more effective chemotherapeutic agents for pediatric ALL.

According to a recent Bioinformatics paper, for each individual array, the proposed reference alignment procedure, or RAP, uses a set of selected markers as internal references to direct the signal alignment.
