USC to Use Illumina Genotyping System for Neurogenetic Research

NEW YORK, June 8 (GenomeWeb News) - Illumina said today that the University of Southern California's Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute at the Keck School of Medicine has agreed to purchase a BeadLab SNP-genotyping system to support its research in neurodegenerative and neuropsychological disorders.


Illumina said that the system will serve as a "core facility" for DNA analysis across USC, supporting a broad range of biomedical research programs conducted by different departments. When installed, the system will allow USC researchers to produce more than eight hundred thousand genotypes per day, Illumina added.
