CD Genomics provides a number of options for those looking to perform copy number variation (CNV) analysis on several different microarray platforms depending on the organism, starting material and size of your project.
Copy number variations (CNVs) are abnormal copy numbers of DNA fragments (from thousands to millions bases) caused by duplications and deletions events. CNVs have been linked to genetic diversity and various diseases. The global CNV maps are applicable to 1) hunt for genes underlying common diseases; 2) study familial genetic conditions; 3) study severe developmental defects caused by chromosomal rearrangements; 4) provide more accurate and complete genome reference sequence. CD Genomics provides services to detect genome-wide CNVs based on microarrays.
