TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assay Sets are pre-defined collections of Predesigned and Custom TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays derived from public databases and published articles. Pre-defined sets of assays greatly simplify analysis of a particular target class or pathway. The assays are delivered in individual tubes ready for loading into a 96- or 384-well plate (depending on assay set chosen). Simply add master mix and sample to start the analysis.

Note: if you do not see an assay of interest included in a set, you can find it using the Assay Search.

Set Name Set Information
Ancestry Informative Marker Set
The Seldin Lab at UC Davis and collaborators identified, validated, and characterized a set of 128 ancestry informative markers (AIMs) to provide a resource for assessing continental ancestry in a wide variety of genetic studies. To learn more, see:

Universal Individual Identification Set
The Kidd Lab at Yale is currently working on identifying SNPs for universal identification. These SNPs have applications in forensics, paternity testing, and sample identification in large biomedical, association, and epidemiologic studies. To learn more, see:

P. falciparum Molecular Bar Code Set (Custom Assays)
Dr. Wiegand's lab at Broad Institute and his collaborators developed the Plasmodium falciparum (parasite that causes malaria) Molecular Bar Code Set leveraging genome-wide diversity data to create a concise and unique signature for every P. falciparum parasite genome. To learn more, see:
