Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS)

Choose the best solution for your genome wide association study

For genome wide association studies we offer the whole range of Affymetrix GeneChips and Illumina BeadChips

For genome wide association studies (GWAS) thousands or up to millions of genetic markers are genotyped in groups of individuals that either carry a certain trait (cases) or not (controls). Differences in the allele and genotype frequencies between the different groups lead to the detection of genomic regions that are assiociated with the certain trait. GWAS typically focus on associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and traits like major diseases in humans or breeding traits in animals and plants.

Our GWAS support services comprise:

  • Affymetrix SNP mapping arrays
    We offer the entire range of Affymetrix GeneChip and GeneTitan DNA analysis solutions, covering up to millions of markers in humans and many other species.

  • Illumina SNP arrays
    We have extensive experience with Illumina’s BeadChips Infinium assays, which allow to genotype 50,000 to 5 million SNP markers per array.
