Illumina Human Exome BeadChips deliver unparalleled coverage of putative functional exonic variants selected from over 12,000 individual exome and whole-genome sequences. Markers were identified through a close collaboration with leading geneticists with the goal of developing an extensive catalog of exome variants. The exonic content consists of > 250,000 markers representing diverse populations—including European, African, Chinese, and Hispanic individuals—and a range of common conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, cancer, metabolic, and psychiatric disorders.
HumanExome BeadChips deliver focused coverage of exonic regions, but do not include coverage outside of coding regions. Researchers can use these arrays to obtain new insights from previously genotyped cohorts, or run new studies focused on identifying functionally relevant associations.
