Abstract: Genetic polymorphisms in human genome can not only become the causative factor for a certain inherited disease, but also alter the risk of developing a particular cancer in at risk population, or influence a patient's treatment response in the therapy. Therefore, genotyping assay may help to control such a disease, understand the aetiology of a cancer, and individualize the treatment based on the patient's genetic profile to maximize the therapeutic efficacy. For these purposes, we exploited the advantages of DNA chip technology and developed two chip-based genotyping strategies: the arrayed primer extension (APEX) and single-nucleotide allele-specific primer extension (AsPEX). This thesis will describe our work of using APEX to screen the mutations that may cause beta-thalassemia, and using multiplex AsPEX to detect polymorphisms in eight xenobiotics-metabolizing genes that may have impact on the susceptibility to developing childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and the risk of relapse in children with ALL.
