ABSTRACT Although genomewide association studies have successfully identified associations of many common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with common diseases, the SNPs implicated so far account for only a small proportion of the genetic variability of tested diseases. It has been suggested that common diseases may often be caused by rare alleles missed by genomewide association studies. To identify these rare alleles we need high-throughput, high-accuracy resequencing technologies. Although array-based genotyping has allowed genomewide association studies of common SNPs in tens of thousands of samples, array-based resequencing has been limited for 2 main reasons: the lack of a fully multiplexed pipeline for high-throughput sample processing, and failure to achieve sufficient performance. We have recently solved both of these problems and created a fully multiplexed high-throughput pipeline that results in high-quality data. The pipeline consists of target amplification from genomic DNA, followed by allele enrichment to generate pools of purified variant (or nonvariant) DNA and ends with interrogation of purified DNA on resequencing arrays. We have used this pipeline to resequence approximately 5 Mb of DNA (on 3 arrays) corresponding to the exons of 1,500 genes in >473 samples; in total >2,350 Mb were sequenced. In the context of this large-scale study we obtained a false positive rate of approximately 1 in 500,000 bp and a false negative rate of approximately 10%.

    ABSTRACT: The dynamic margin for selective writing discharge occurred at addressing period is one of major factors to determine the display quality and lifetime of device. And we cannot also expect the stable discharge in sustaining period without wide dynamic margin. This dynamic margin has been determined by wall charge configuration, which is formed already prior to the addressing period under a given driving sequence and panel structure. Thus well-adjusted wall charge configuration prior to the addressing period is very important to obtain the wide operation margin and excellent display quality. In this experiment, we have analyzed the quantity and polarity of wall charge accumulated on the front and rear dielectrics prior to the addressing discharge under the well-known two driving sequence with quite different charge configurations. As a result, under a certain wall charge configuration on front and rear dielectrics, especially for the wall charge of same polarity between scan and addressing electrode, the dynamic margin for selective writing discharge occurred at addressing period has been seriously reduced. And it is also found that the wall charge on the rear dielectrics is one of main factors causing the wrong discharge in sustaining period.
