    Statistics from

    In our previous article,1 we used array-comparative genomic hybridisation (CGH) analysis to identify Xq26–q27 duplications in families with X-linked hypopituitarism (XH). The array-CGH assay was validated using affected male genomic DNA from two previously characterised XH families that carry Xq26–q27 …
