Functional Analysis of RAD51B and RAD23B SNPs using Circular Chromosome Conformation Capture (4C) in Human Prostate Cell Lines

Poster

The aim of this study is to understand the mechanism behind the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), lying in non-coding regions near or within RAD51B and RAD23B, and prostate cancer risk by analysing their interactions with the whole genome using Circular Chromosome Conformation Capture (4C).
