Find new candidate genes
In a newborn with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), a severe developmental disorder affecting the diaphragm, lungs and sometimes heart, OGM detected two adjacent duplications, one direct and one inverted. OGM revealed a much more complex architecture than could be inferred from microarray data and identified several additional candidate genes for CDH.
