  1. Probe distribution along 15q11.2q13 with the Illumina Beadchip human whole genome array shows a high proportion of cross-hybridizing probes to SDs in BP1 and BP3, relative to those detecting unique intervals. 75% (n = 14/20) of the probes (left column) in BP1 also detect distinct interchromosomal duplicon loci (middle column) in a given chromosome band (right column). In BP3, 50% (n = 5/10) of the probes hybridized to interchromosomal targets. The remaining probes were found at paralogous loci on chromosome 15 or within repeat-masked regions. Probes within intrachromosomal duplicons (n = 5) and repeat-masked sequences (n = 1) were poorly represented in BP1 and none were found in BP2.
