Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9934016A2] A method for determining the genetic proximity of two cells. The pattern of expression of genes in a selected family is determined in both cells and is a proximity index calculated based upon the patterns of gene expression. A large proximity index indicates that the two cells are genetically proximal to each other, while a small proximity index indicates that the two cells are genetically distant from each other.
