Abstract

Recent breakthroughs in multiplexed SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) genotyping technology have enabled global mapping of the relationships between genetic variation and disease. Discoveries made by such whole-genome association studies often spur further interest in surveying more focused subsets of SNPs for validation or research purposes. Here we describe a new SNP genotyping platform that is flexible in assay content and multiplexing (up to 384 analytes), and can serve medium- to high-throughput applications. The Illumina BeadXpress platform supports the GoldenGate Genotyping Assay on digitally inscribed VeraCode microbeads to allow streamlined workflow, rapid detection, unparalleled data reproducibility and consistency. Thus, it is a highly valuable tool for biomarker research and validation, pharmaceutical development, as well as the development of molecular diagnostic tests.
