SNP arrays

Three major European genomics service providers have founded a consortium to offer cost-effective, whole-genome genotyping on a new Illumina SNP array.

A genome-wide association suggests an African-specific lincRNA allele on chromosome 7 contributes to risk of bloodstream infection by Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Researchers found that using a genetic risk prediction model with non-BRCA-related SNPs could be used with family history to calculate women's breast cancer risk.

A genome-wide association study involving more than 4,000 dogs uncovered new genetic associations and pointed to strategies for future disease studies.

The results showed that syndromic forms of autism are more likely when children have alterations of genes in the mGluR pathway.

The company is also planning a new round of financing, and, with consent, banking its samples with the long-term goal of establishing an Indian biorepository.

Following its decision to focus on genomics products, OGT will license its SNP probes to help BMGL extend the technology throughout its genomic services.

The availability of consumer genomics services has also made it possible for adoptees to bypass state adoption laws, many of which restrict access to their records.

Following variant discovery by next-generation sequencing, Illumina will design a custom SNP array for the project.

Interviews with some of the leading academics in the field of crop research revealed a preference for NGS and genotyping-by-sequencing, in particular.
