Illumina Applications

Genotyping

All whole-genome Infinium products start with a broad set of tag SNPs derived from the International HapMap Project, providing unrivaled coverage and uniformity across the genome. Other valuable coverage includes SNPs within 10kb of RefSeq genes, non-synonymous SNPs, ADME SNPs, and SNPs found in the MHC region. With median marker spacing down to 1.5kb, Infinium HD BeadChips are a powerful tool for structural variation discovery and support cytogeneticists interested in high-resolution breakpoint mapping.

Methylation

The Infinium HumanMethylation450 BeadChip's unique combination of comprehensive, expert-selected coverage, high sample throughput, and affordable price make it an ideal solution for epigenome-wide association studies (EWAS).
