Copy number variation and human genome maps

Nat Genet. 2010 May;42(5):365-6. doi: 10.1038/ng0510-365.


Maps of human genome copy number variation (CNV) are maturing into useful resources for complex disease genetics. Four new studies increase the resolution of CNV maps and seek to locate human phenotypic variation on these maps.
