Genome Analysis Facility performed 3.5 billion genotypes in 2008

01 januari 2009

By producing over 3.5 billion genotypes in 2008 the Genome Analysis Facility of the Department of Genetics has shown it can handle large-scale genotyping projects.

The majority of the genotyping was performed using the Illumina Infinium platform. The Illumina platform is very flexible and is at the forefront of genotyping technologies.

Hybridisations were performed using multi-sample BeadArrays, and the process was streamlined with the Tecan Freedom EVO to automate the loading and staining of the BeadArrays.

Besides doing genotyping studies by processing Infinium slides, the Genome Analysis Facility also offers the possibilities for Next Generation Sequencing, expression studies and liquid handling.
