We understand that managing large datasets can be a challenge. In order to familiarize you on microarray analysis, Illumina provides whole-genome genotyping and methylation training packages. The training packages include user guides, data sheets, and example data sets.
The training explains how the GenomeStudio software analysis tool can help you convert data into meaningful results for your genome analysis and research.
Familiarize yourself with our genotyping data by looking at a GenomeStudio project containing data for a small sample set consisting of 12 Centre d’Etude du Polymorphisme Humain (CEPH) samples, including two replicates genotyped using the Illumina HumanOmni5-Quad beadchip. This product leverages powerful tagSNPs selected from the International HapMap and 1000 Genomes Projects that target genetic variation down to 1% minor allele frequency. Using the HiScan or iScan systems, along with the Infinium LCG Assay, this four-sample BeadChip offers high-throughput sample processing and optimized content for whole-genome genotyping and CNV applications. Discover how to use GenomeStudio, to optimize calls for your samples and run reports in a format that can be directly imported into downstream analysis tools.
We recommend using the GenomeStudio GT Module v1.0 User Guide for additional information about the functions available in the software and how to export data in a format compatible for your downstream analysis.
The HumanMethylation450 BeadChip allows researchers to interrogate more than 485,000 methylation sites per sample at single-nucleotide resolution. The GenomeStudio methylation module which supports the analysis of the methylation assay data calculates methylation levels (beta values) and analyzes differential methylation levels between experimental groups. Single-site resolution data can be visualized as line plots, bar graphs, scatter plots, histograms, dendrograms, box plots, or heat maps. The Demo data set provides data for Centre d’Etude du Polymorphisme Humain (CEPH) samples, including two replicates, run on the Humanmethylation450 BeadChip.
We recommend using the GenomeStudio Methylation Module v1.8 User Guide for additional information about the functions available in the software and how to export data in a format compatible for your downstream analysis.
