Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Analysis

A single nucleotids polmorphism, also known as SNP, is the variation of a single nucleotide in the DNA sequence between the individuals of a species or between an individual’s paired chromosomes. Studies suggest that SNPs may aid in identifying individuals’ propensity to certain diseases and predicting their responses to specific medications. Therefore, identification and inspection of SNPs is of great importance for the researches conducted in biomedical and drug development areas.

Genotyping is an efficient and most commonly applied process for screening of single nucleotide polymorphisms. For this purpose, many genotyping methods (from hybridization based methods to enzyme based methods and sequencing) have emerged in the past years.
