Genotyping Core Facility

Whole Genome Genotyping and Copy Number Analysis

Whole genome genotyping arrays are an important tool for discovering variants that contribute to human disease. The two primary applications of this technology, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and copy number variant (CNV) analysis unravel the complex genetic architecture of genetic traits and complex disease. The CGT offers arrays for these purposes from both Illumina and Affymetrix.


Illumina’s Infinium Assay, combined with fixed or custom content BeadChips, allows for large-scale interrogation of variations in the human genome. The CGT offers genotyping on any BeadChip available from Illumina; see partial list below. For more information on the SNP content of each BeadChip visit
