SNP arrays

CGH+SNP or just SNP? Geneticists who use microarrays for constitutional and cancer cytogenetics have never had so many choices.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An array-based analysis by researchers from Australia and elsewhere has identified a gene that is often missing in ovarian cancers that become resistant to liposomal doxorubicin chemotherapy, hinting that it may serve as a marker for such acquired resistance.

A recent study by researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has demonstrated that SNP microarrays can identify regions of homozygosity that aid in clinical diagnosis as well as identify instances of close parental relatedness.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The US Food and Drug Administration is seeking a small business to help support management of two of its genomic data resources run by the National Center for Toxicological Research.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Two new loci have been linked to elevated risk for a childhood embryonal kidney cancer called Wilms tumor, according to a study appearing online yesterday in Nature Genetics.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Investigators from the US, France, and Cameroon brought together information on genome-wide ancestry patterns, signals of selection, and more in their search for genetic factors behind diminutive stature of Western African Pygmy populations — work that they described o

Two research teams have mapped recombination patterns in individuals of African and European ancestry using genotyping data from large population samples.
