Abstract: Neuroblastoma is a very heterogeneous tumor, with a clinical course ranging from spontaneous regression to aggressive tumor growth. A proper stratification of the patients into different risk groups is therefore important in order to provide the most suitable treatment for each patient. The primary aim of this thesis was therefore to further characterize the genes and mechanisms important for neuroblastoma development using genome wide copy number data from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-a... more
