We have developed a methodology we call ROMA (representational oligonucleotide microarray analysis), for the detection of the genomic aberrations in cancer and normal humans. By arraying oligonucleotide probes designed from the human genome sequence, and hybridizing with "representations" from cancer and normal cells, we detect regions of the genome with(More)
In this work, we explore the use of representations in conjunction with DNA microarray technology to measure gene copy number changes in cancer. We demonstrate that arrays of DNA probes derived from low-complexity representations can be used to detect amplifications, deletions, and polymorphic differences when hybridized to representations of genomic DNA.(More)
We describe a method to make physical maps of genomes using correlative hybridization patterns of probes to random pools of BACs. We derive thereby an estimated distance between probes, and then use this estimated distance to order probes. To test the method, we used BAC libraries from Schizzosaccharomyces pombe. We compared our data to the known sequence(More)
