Thermo Fisher's Axiom Precision Medicine Research Array

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its Axiom Precision Medicine Research array. It is a broad genotyping resource designed to enable research on a variety of health questions related to common and rare inherited diseases, genetic risk profiling, immune response, and pharmacogenomics research. The array contains about 800,000 pan-ethnic imputation markers selected for highest genomic coverage at various 1000 Genomes phase 3 minor allele frequency ranges, and more than 100,000 relevant gene variants from broadly referenced public databases, including ClinVar, CPIC, PharmaGKB, and PharmaADME.
