Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
RATIONALE: Studying the genes expressed in samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer may help doctors identify biomarkers related to cancer.
PURPOSE: This research study is looking at tissue samples from women treated with paclitaxel for breast cancer on clinical trial CALGB 9344 or CALGB 9741.
Genetic: gene expression analysis
Genetic: polymerase chain reaction
