OncoArray Links Dozens of DNA Variants to Risk for Common Cancers

, by DCEG Staff

The OncoArray Network uses a customized high-throughput DNA processing array to identify genetic differences, or variants, linked to increased cancer risk.

Over the last decade, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have begun to identify common inherited genetic differences, or variants, that influence disease risk. Now, researchers with the NCI-supported GAME-ON initiative and OncoArray Network are on their way to completing the latest round of cutting-edge studies of inherited risk factors.
