Dilution-Based Illumina Method Allows for Targeted and Whole-Genome Haplotyping | GenomeWeb

Researchers at Illumina have developed a dilution-based haplotyping method that it is suitable for both targeted and whole-genome sequencing experiments.

The method, published online in PNAS last week, allows users to obtain SNP phasing information for DNA stretches of up to several hundred kilobases in length. According to the authors, it can be used by any researchers with access to a next-gen sequencer, not only Illumina's platform.
