copy number analysis

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Affymetrix today announced a collaboration with the Broad Institute to chart the genomic changes in more than 20 cancer types as part of the Broad's work on The Cancer Genome Atlas.

Using a combination of whole-exome sequencing and expression, methylation, and copy number analyses, members of The Cancer Genome Atlas have characterized hundreds of high-grade serous ovarian cancer samples.

Affymetrix named BioDiscovery its preferred software provider for Affymetrix OncoScan FFPE Express Service data analysis.

Induced pluripotent stem cells can harbor copy number changes and point mutations not found in differentiated cells or embryonic stem cells, two new studies suggest.

By genotyping more than 1,000 individuals with anorexia nervosa and almost 4,000 unaffected controls, researchers have identified common SNPs and rare CNVs that appear to be linked to the condition.

Using array comparative genomic hybridization, a team of researchers from the US looked at copy number patterns in dozens of healthy, pre-cancerous, and cancerous skin samples, identifying a recurrent chromosome 10 deletion associated with an aggressive form of skin cancer called cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.

Researchers from Norway, Belgium, and elsewhere have developed an algorithm for determining allele-specific copy number patterns in tumors from SNP data.
