Supplementary Material

In the supplementary materials section we include additional descriptions of the materials and methods, two supplementary figures, and a UCSC Genome Browser compatible BED file containing the precise coordinates of the CNV tracks. In the materials and methods section, we describe details for the spotted microarray analysis, FISH analysis, duplication junction cloning, sequencing of the resulting PCR product, and additional analyses of the resulting transcript. Supplemental Figure 1 includes images generated from the metaphase FISH assay and Supplemental Figure 2 includes the genomic sequence read at the duplication junction. Supplemental Figure 3 includes the CNV coordinates formatted for compatible visualization in the UCSC Genome Browser which was used to produce Figure 3 in the manuscript. Finally, we have included information on the grant used to fund this research.
