PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying genes to identify melanoma in patients in Iceland and their family members.
- Assess the feasibility of Iceland Genomics Corporation (UVS) to identify melanoma in multiple-case families, individuals with multiple tumors, and selected additional family members in Iceland.
- Assess the feasibility of mutation detection using sequencing and HPLC.
- Determine UVS' ability to create datasets with demographic, epidemiologic and molecular data.
OUTLINE: Participants and patients undergo blood collection and complete lifestyle questionnaires. All patients and population-based controls have DNA samples sequenced for MC1R. Demographic and epidemiologic data on all study participants is collected. Sequencing of the major melanoma susceptibility genes CFDKN2A, CDK4, and MC1R is also performed.

Liquid chromatographic techniques which feature high inlet pressures, high sensitivity, and high speed.
Fractionation of a vaporized sample as a consequence of partition between a mobile gaseous phase and a stationary phase held in a column. Two types are gas-solid chromatography, where the fixed phase is a solid, and gas-liquid, in which the stationary phase is a nonvolatile liquid supported on an inert solid matrix.
A method of separation of two or more substances by repeated distribution between two immiscible liquid phases that move past each other in opposite directions. It is a form of liquid-liquid chromatography. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Chromatographic techniques in which the mobile phase is a liquid.
An extraction method that separates analytes using a solid phase and a liquid phase. It is used for preparative sample cleanup before analysis by CHROMATOGRAPHY and other analytical methods.
