GWAS and Genotyping

The Affymetrix GeneChip® SNP array can be used for genotyping and/or for identifying genetic associations with traits across a given genome, also known as genome-wide association study (GWAS).

CUGI is equipped with Affymetrix GeneChip® Scanner 3000 7G Targeted Genotyping System. Working together with the Affymetrix GeneChip® SNP array, this system allows for whole genome association study and targeted genotyping.

Supported Affymetrix chips include:


  • Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0
  • Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 5.0
  • Human Mapping 500K Array Set
  • Human Mapping 100K Set
  • Human Mapping 10K 2.0 Array


  • Affymetrix® Mouse Diversity Genotyping Array
