Custom genotyping is the ideal solution for screening large sample sets against novel or targeted content. With custom designs, researchers can target regions of the genome relevant to their specific research interests. Illumina offers flexible options and simple online design tools to maximize success with your customized genotyping assays.
Fully custom arrays can be developed easily with up to 700 thousand markers targeting any loci across the genome, for any species, including novel organisms. Illumina also offers flexible throughput options, as well as the ability to tailor standard array products with add-on content to include novel variants of interest.
Design custom or semi-custom arrays for any species, with convenient online tools and expert assistance. Options include:
Access simple and powerful online tools for evaluating loci and creating the most successful custom genotyping assays.
Researchers can design custom assays to sequence only those genome regions relevant to their specific research interests. Custom targeted sequencing is ideal for examining genes in specific pathways, or for follow-up studies from GWAS or whole-genome sequencing.
