Genotyping Technology

Genotyping Technology Genotyping technologies provide a powerful toolset for examining the widest range of genetic variation. Human genetic variation is present in many different forms in the genome, ranging from large, structural, chromosomal changes to single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). There exists a broad range of products for analysis of genetic variation and genomic profiling. Traditional methods include in situ hybridization, SNP genotyping, AFLP and microsatellite analysis; real-time PCR-based methods using TaqMan® Assays. Whereas more advanced genomic profiling techniques continue to develop, such as array comparative genomic hybridization. Genotyping is a key tool in the research of gene variants associated with disease. Genotyping technologies have brought understanding to the meaning and consequences of the incredible amount of variation in genomic DNA and its transcription products.
