Application Note: SNP Analysis by Real-Time PCR Set-Up in High-Throughput Service Facility
27 November 2018

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) are the most common type of genetic variation among people. Each SNP represents a difference in a single DNA base. These genetic variations between individuals (particularly in non-coding parts of the genome) are exploited in DNA fingerprinting, which is used in forensic science. Also, these genetic variations underlie differences in our susceptibility to disease.
