Affymetrix has launched its Axiom myDesign Targeted Genotyping Arrays to enable researchers to study mutations in disease pathways and characterize gene-gene interactions.
Customers can now design arrays to genotype between 1,500 and 2.6 million markers per sample, allowing them to move from genome-wide scans to specific disease analyses with different experimental approaches on the same platform, according to the firm. Users can create their own arrays using Affy's Axiom Design Center online tool.
In addition to Axiom myDesign TG Arrays, Affy also released a new version of its Axiom Genomic Database. The database now contains 11 million variants, the firm said.
