Greetings from Cambridge where we are enjoying a lovely late autumn with
crisp clear days and beautiful colours on the trees.
1) Decipher Research Array study
2) Refactoring of the DECIPHER codebase
3) Dates for your 2008 diary
Decipher Research Array study
>From mid November there will be a new opportunity for centres to submit
selected cases for analysis on high resolution arrays in Dr Nigel Carter's
laboratory at the Sanger Institute as part of the DECIPHER Research array
study. For further details please see the link through to the DECIPHER
Array portal on the home-page where you can access the patient information
sheet, consent form and study checklist.
Refactoring of the DECIPHER codebase
Behind the scenes the programming team are busy refactoring the database
to improve the speed and usability of DECIPHER. We hope you will notice
improvements in speed of page returns and general usability. If you have
any comments or suggestions, please contact us at decipher at sanger.ac.uk

Please note two important dates for 2008 in next year's diary:
