Identification by oligonucleotide microarray of additional complexity missed by BAC microarray. (A) BAC microarray results showing a single-copy loss of 34 BAC clones from the terminus of 5p, approximately 6.8 Mb in size (chr5: 387,034-7,150,950, based on UCSC 2006 hg 18 assembly). Probes are ordered on the x axis according to physical mapping positions, with the p-arm probes to the left and q-arm probes to the right. (B) shows oligonucleotide microarray results of the terminal deletion shown in (A) in addition to single-copy gain of 29 probes from 5p, approximately 1.38 Mb in size (chr5: 8,511,592-9,888,817, based on UCSC 2006 hg 18 assembly). Probes are ordered as in the BAC array. Regions shaded in blue represent deletions detected by microarray, whereas duplications are shaded in pink.
