The chromosomal region 17q23 is amplified in some cancer cells and is associated with poor prognosis for breast cancer. In the May 8 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Monni et al. describe the use of genomic and microarray analysis to characterize the 17q23 amplicon in breast cancer cells (Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 2001, 98:5711-5716). They constructed a 4 megabase contig covering the amplified region of chromosome 17, containing 17 genes and 26 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) identif
