Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) provide important information about the biology and evolution of different organisms. SNPs may also help predict an individual’s response to certain drugs, susceptibility to environmental factors, and risk of developing particular diseases providing valuable insight into pathophysiology of the human condition. As a result, SNPs with important functional roles often become subjects for high-throughput experiments.
In this webinar, Daniel Tsang provides an overview of genotyping using real-time PCR (qPCR) technology, including challenges and ways to overcome these challenges. He presents a novel qPCR-based genotyping solution, the rhAmp™ SNP Genotyping System, along with its advantages in genotyping, details on cluster separation, as well as solutions to improve the calling accuracy and confidence of making genotype calls.
