Statistical methods have been used to define a number of genomic regions of significant copy number alteration in serous-like tumors, including regions of focal amplification involving the MYC (v-myc avian myelocytomatosis viral oncogene homolog) oncogene, the ERBB2 (HER2) receptor tyrosine kinase gene, and CCNE1 (cyclin E1), which are each focally amplified in 23%-25% of cases (15).

However, because the virtual karyotype is not quantitative, it only indicates lower abundance of 17p (including the centromere and a portion of the q arm), compared with the rest of 17q (including the ERBB2 locus).
