Abstract Genomic structural variants constitute the majority of variable base pairs in primate
genomes and affect gene function in multiple ways. While whole gene duplications and
deletions are relatively well-studied, the biology of subexonic (ie, within coding exon
sequences), copy number variation remains elusive. The salivary MUC7 gene provides an
opportunity for studying such variation, as it harbors copy number variable subexonic ...
