Illumina this week launched its Sentrix HumanHap Genotyping BeadChip, which "extends broad genomic coverage to all four populations studied by the International HapMap Project, including the Yoruba in Ibadan, Nigeria," who show greater genetic diversity than Europeans and Asians, the company said. The HumanHap650Y BeadChip contains more than 650,000 SNPs on a single microarray, providing "the most comprehensive genomic coverage and highest data quality of any whole-genome genotyping product currently available," Illumina said.
