[No authors listed]
Hundreds of researchers have joined together in a large-scale cancer genotyping project focused on lung, breast, ovarian, prostate, and colorectal cancers. The OncoArray Consortium plans to perform germline genotyping of 425,000 blood samples pooled from consortium members by July 2014, using a custom genotyping chip that includes 530,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms.
