Illumina Onmi

Illumina recently announced their latest chip for GWA studies - the HumanOmni1-Quad. Generating more than 4 million data points, it assays over 30,000 coding SNPs, contains content derived from the 1000 genomes project, and has probes covering 11,000 common and rare CNVs.

I doubt the information gain will immediately be worth the premium price for this chip, but it will be available next month nonetheless.

Press release: HumanOmni1-Quad
