BACKGROUND Several approaches can be used to determine the order of loci on chromosomes and hence develop maps of the genome. However, all mapping approaches are prone to errors either arising from technical deficiencies or lack of statistical support to distinguish between alternative orders of loci. The accuracy of the genome maps could be improved, in(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that have been found to play important roles in silencing target genes and that are involved in the regulation of various normal cellular processes. Until now their implication in the mammary gland biology was suggested by few studies mainly focusing on pathological situations allowing the(More)
BACKGROUND Cattle are important agriculturally and relevant as a model organism. Previously described genetic and radiation hybrid (RH) maps of the bovine genome have been used to identify genomic regions and genes affecting specific traits. Application of these maps to identify influential genetic polymorphisms will be enhanced by integration with each(More)
A high percentage of uveal melanoma patients develop metastatic tumors predominantly in the liver. We studied the molecular profiles derived from gene expression microarrays and comparative genomic hybridization microarrays, to identify genes associated with metastasis in this aggressive cancer. We compared 28 uveal melanomas from patients who developed(More)
