Genotyping refers to the process of determining the genotype of an individual by sequence information. Different genotypes may be associated with specific phenotypes, therefore genotyping can be used for genetic associated disease studies, drug-resistance association studies, high-yield genes mapping or plant strain selection, etc.
There are many different methods for genotyping. Recent technological advances in high-performance genotyping methods include array or bead-based genotyping and next-generation sequencing genotyping.
This tutorial will introduce the genotyping software hosted at MSI including Illumina GenomeStudio, Genotyping Console™ (GTC) Software, GeneMapper, Sequenom Typer, Matlab Bioinformatics toolbox for SNPs, dChip, SOAP, GeneSpring 11, and Bioconductor for SNP.
