Inferring mechanisms of copy number change from haplotype structures at the human DEFA1A3 locus

Article English OPEN
Black, Holly A; Khan, Fayeza F; Tyson, Jess; Armour, John AL;

Background The determination of structural haplotypes at copy number variable regions can indicate the mechanisms responsible for changes in copy number, as well as explain the relationship between gene copy number and expression. However, obtaining spatial information ... View more
