The power of discovery is in the design

The Axiom™ Biobank Genotyping Solution is a widely adopted platform for large-scale genotyping studies. Many of the world’s largest genetic epidemiology projects have chosen it. One of the key reasons is the array design strategy which focuses on a fundamental problem of whole-genome genotyping studies: efficient coverage of genomic, disease and functional variation in a study’s target population.

In an interview discussing the design of UK Biobank’s whole-genome array, Professor Mark McCarthy of University of Oxford, UK, commented:

“At the common variant level, the set of tagSNPs that you might want to select to most efficiently cover the genome will differ from population to population. This will matter even more as we focus more on functional alleles that are more likely to be rare and ethnicity-specific.”

You can download the full interview with Professor McCarthy to see how UK Biobank solved this challenge.

Introducing Axiom Transplant Genotyping Array: facilitating collaboration and empowering meta-analyses
Axiom Transplant Genotyping Array, a genome-wide SNP array tailored to transplant researchers and immunologists, allows for deeper capture of variants across HLA, KIR, pharmacogenomic, and metabolic loci related to transplant outcomes. Designed with the International Genetics & Translational Research in Transplantation Network (iGeneTRAiN), a network established to improve transplant success through use of genetic studies and patient-specific recommended therapeutics, Axiom Transplant Genotyping Array enables powerful and cost-effective, large-scale genotyping of transplant-related studies.

UK Biobank Axiom Array
Designed for hypothesis-free SNP genotyping, the UK Biobank has created a large-scale prospective cohort of 500,000 participants to study the interactions of genes, lifestyle, and environment with the goal of prolonging health through the improvement of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of life-threatening diseases. The study promises to transform medical care by understanding how risk factors act together to cause disease.
