PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

For those interested in accessing the data associated with this manuscript, the SNP Array data are available at the GEO web site ( as both CEL files and segmented copy number values in text format. Our analysis also made use of expression data for certain genes in genomic regions of interest. Unfortunately, we cannot make the bulk expression data available for download as it is the property of Genelogic (An Ocimum Biosolutions Company). Our contract with Genelogic will only allow for the release of relatively small subsets of the data.

We understand the desire by many to access both the expression and DNA copy number data for the same patients. We have been trying to persuade GeneLogic to make such expression data publicly available, but so far they have not agreed on this except pointing out that anyone can request data from them directly.

Genelogic can be contacted through Dwight L. Davis
