MOTIVATION Microarray-based CGH (Comparative Genomic Hybridization), transcriptome arrays and other large-scale genomic technologies are now routinely used to generate a vast amount of genomic profiles. Exploratory analysis of this data is crucial in helping to understand the data and to help form biological hypotheses. This step requires visualization of(More)
Neuroblastoma (NB) is a frequent paediatric extra cranial solid tumor characterized by the occurrence of unbalanced chromosome translocations, frequently, but not exclusively, involving chromosomes 1 and 17. We have used a 1 Mb resolution BAC array to further refine the mapping of breakpoints in NB cell lines. Replication timing profiles were evaluated in 7(More)
Array-based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) is a recently developed technique for analyzing changes in DNA copy number. As in all microarray analyses, normalization is required to correct for experimental artifacts while preserving the true biological signal. We investigated various sources of systematic variation in array-CGH data and(More)
Assessing variations in DNA copy number is crucial for understanding constitutional or somatic diseases, particularly cancers. The recently developed array-CGH (comparative genomic hybridization) technology allows this to be investigated at the genomic level. We report the availability of a web tool for analysing array-CGH data. CAPweb (CGH array Analysis(More)
About 5% of gliomas occur in a familial context, which suggests a genetic origin, but the predisposing molecular factors remain unknown in most cases. A series of nine familial gliomas were characterized with 1-megabase resolution BAC array-based comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) together with germline sequence analysis of TP53. This series was(More)
Precision medicine (PM) requires the delivery of individually adapted medical care based on the genetic characteristics of each patient and his/her tumor. The last decade witnessed the development of high-throughput technologies such as microarrays and next-generation sequencing which paved the way to PM in the field of oncology. While the cost of these(More)
In recent years, an increasing number of projects have investigated tumor genome structure, using microarray-based techniques like array comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) or single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays. The forthcoming studies have to integrate these former results and compare their findings to the existing sets of copy number(More)
