Scientists in Cambridge have discovered that the loss of a key segment of DNA can lead to severe childhood obesity.
Gene copy number variations of the same region, 16p11.2, are already linked to autism.
New map of copy number variation in the human genome is a resource for human genetics.
An international research team has issued the most updated map of changes to the structure of human genomes.
Duke University Medical Center and National Cancer Institute scientists have discovered that a novel genetic alteration â€“ a second copy of an entire gene â€“ is a cause of familial chordoma, an uncommon form of cancer arising in bones and frequently affecting the nervous system.
A newly designed computational method has proven its usefulness in counting copies of duplicated genome sequences and in doing initial assessments of their contents, according to a study to be published Aug. 30 in Nature Genetics. The number of copies of particular DNA segments can differ from one person to the next.
A research team led by Associate Professor Jonathan Sebat, Ph.D., of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has developed a sensitive and accurate way of identifying gene copy number variations (CNVs).
