The present invention provides a microarray useful as a tool in the diagnosis and/or prognosis of certain types of cancers, particularly urogenital cancers. The microarray can include a plurality of genomic regions represented thereon, the genomic regions corresponding to regions wherein alterations, such as copy number aberrations, at such locations correlate to specific, identifiable cancers, particularly prostate, renal, or bladder tumors. The invention further provides methods of diagnosing certain types of cancers, particularly urogenital cancers, more particularly renal cortical cancers. The methods can comprise analyzing genetic material from a human individual to determine the presence or presence of certain aberrations and using a decision tree to classify the subtype of renal cortical neoplasm present in the sample.

The present invention provides a microarray useful as a tool in the diagnosis and/or prognosis of certain types of cancers, particularly mature B-cell neoplasms. The microarray can include a plurality of genomic regions represented thereon, the genomic regions corresponding to regions wherein alterations, such as copy number alterations, at such locations correlate to specific, identifiable cancers, particularly mature B-cell neoplasms. The invention further provides methods of diagnosing and providing prognosis certain types of cancer, particularly mature B-cell neoplasms. The methods can comprise contacting a sample to a microarray according to the invention, allowing any genetic material in the sample to hybridize to the genomic regions on the microarray, analyzing the hybridizations, and correlating the hybridizations to certain cancer types, particularly mature B-cell neoplasms.

The present invention provides probes and methods of use thereof in the diagnosis and/or prognosis of certain types of cancers, particularly human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated cancers. The probes are designed for hybridization with genomic material in a manner indicative of one or more aberrations in the genetic material present in the test sample. The identified aberrations are biomarkers of HPV-associated cancer. The methods of the invention comprise contacting a sample to one or more probes, allowing any genetic material in the sample to hybridize to the genomic regions provided in the probes, analyzing the hybridizations, and analyzing the hybridizations to identify detected aberrations as biomarkers indicative of HPV-associated cancer progression.
