copy number analysis

The agreement covers Agilent's Mx3005P qPCR system and Brilliant qPCR reagents and IDT's PrimeTime qPCR assays.

The technique could be used to diagnose diseases such as mental retardation, where copy number variation is a key characteristic, and as a screening tool to look for cancer biomarkers and assess drug effectiveness, the researchers said.

An international consortium has identified rare copy number variants that are more common in individuals on the autism spectrum.

The researchers are combining technologies such as exome sequencing, RNA sequencing, copy number profiling, gene expression analysis, and targeted resequencing to better understand different types of breast cancer tumors and eventually tailor treatment and improve diagnostics.
