CD Genomics provides rapid, high quality, high-throughput genotyping service for family based linkage analysis. Our staff scientists have more than 20 years of experiences in genetic analysis.
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS), thousands or up to millions of genetic markers are genotyped in groups of individuals that either carries a certain trait (cases) or not (controls). Differences in the allele and genotype frequencies between the different groups lead to the detection of genomic regions that are associated with the certain trait. GWAS typically focus on associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and traits like major diseases in humans or breeding traits in animals and plants. Equipped with Affymetrix GeneChip® Scanner 3000 7G and Illumina's iScan System, CD Genomics offers researchers the flexibility to profile samples with millions of markers in high-throughput format, and deliver dense genome wide coverage with the most up-to-date content available from the scientific community.
