The University of California-Davis School of Medicine ( will employ the BioTrove ( OpenArray™ technology platform to explore genetic variations in common human diseases. They will use the OpenArray NT Imager to conduct SNP genotyping of large community-based patient cohorts to identify genetic variations linked to disease susceptibility.

“These studies will provide the ability to both look at whether ancestry is linked to disease, as well as to better design experimental studies in admixed populations, such as African Americans and various Hispanic groups,” states Michael F. Seldin, M.D., Ph.D., Rowe Chair of Human Genetics, and leader of the study.
