NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – With the help of a new single-cell analysis approach, researchers have uncovered thousands of copy number variants that occur in developing brains.

Brain cells accumulate somatic changes — often copy number changes — that lead to genomic mosaicism and cellular diversity. But how these neural CNVs arise has been unclear.
