SNP (Single-nucleotide polymorphism) Genotyping

SNP genotyping is the measurement of genetic variations of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) between members of a species. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are widespread genomic variations, which are associated with serious health disorders and drug resistance.

Multiple clinical applications and studies of global population genetics require fast and informative analysis of SNPs. Most of conventional methods sense the presence of the SNP but cannot identify the base pair in it. By utilizing Qsep100 Fragment Analyzer we show a simple identification of base pairs in SNPs without DNA sequencing.
