GenoScreen - Services provided
GenoScreen offers whole-genome analyses that can detect novel genotype-phenotype associations or known genetic variants.
This technique is based on the detection of a change in a single pair of nucleotides at a particular position. Starting from samples of organic matter, SNP analysis can be used to identify genotypes (people, for example) or build family trees for people or species.
- NGS for whole-genome analyses (studies of populations or associations and genomic selection)
- Fluidigm Biomark, NGS and microarrays for genotyping a gene (candidate regions)
- Real-time PCR and Sanger sequencing for analyzing specific individual SNPs (in pharmacogenetics and diagnostics).
For new SNP discovery, GenoScreen offers RAD-Seq approaches. This technology reduces the complexity of the analyses and scans a small fraction (0.1-10%) of a selected genome, for genotyping and/or genetic marker discovery.
The analysis of high-throughput sequencing data enables the identification of a large quantity of genetic variants (such as SNPs).
