 Overview
Human genomes comprise structural genomic variants or simply copy number variants (CNVs), defined as regions with DNA gains or losses. Now, CNVs have been implicated in the pathogenesis of several congenital anomalies in infants e.g. chronic lung diseases in premature infants, congenital heart diseases etc. The major objectives of research is to utilize latest microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH), single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays and next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies to identify previously unidentified CNVs that would be helpful in the understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease in infants.
