The Affymetrix GeneTitan

New genomics technologies commissioned

The High-Throughput Genomics group at the WTCHG has recently taken delivery of two new genomics platforms. The Affymetrix GeneTitan offers a fast, automated route to search for genetic variations, or SNPs, that have some association with disease. The Oxford Nanopore MinION, currently being evaluated by several groups in the Centre, is the first nanopore-based sequencer to enter commercial production.
