The new Affymetrix ® Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0 features more than 1.8 million markers for genetic variation, including more than 906,600 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and more than 946,000 probes for the detection of copy number variation.
Released in early 2007, the Human SNP Array 5.0 represents the latest evolution of SNP mapping technology. The new array contains all SNPs from the previous 500K Array Set plus an additional 420,000 non-polymorphic probes that can measure other genetic differences, such as copy number variation. All of this means more powerful studies with reduced processing time.
The GeneChip ® Mapping Assay for the Human Mapping 500K Array Set builds on the proven and simple approach for reducing complexity of the genome that is employed by the GeneChip ® Human Mapping 10K Array and the GeneChip ® Mapping 100K Set. With over five times the SNP content of the 100K Set and over twice the genetic power, the Mapping 500K Array Set enables truly high-powered, whole genome association.
