NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A team from Spain, Germany, and the US has used genome, exome, and targeted sequencing to take a look at mutational patterns in mantle cell lymphoma.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A team from Spain and the US has used a combination of whole-genome bisulfite sequencing and array-based analyses to begin characterizing epigenetic patterns in healthy populations of white blood cells known as B cells and in B cells affected by chronic lymphocytic leu

A recent study suggests that using arrays and sequencing together could help generate more reliable data sets than when either method is used alone, and should help improve the confidence of functional analysis.
