To fulfill the increasing need for large-scale genetic research, we have developed a new solid-phase single base extension (SBE) protocol on magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for multiplex SNP detection
using adapter polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products as templates. Extension primers were covalently immobilized on the MNPs, and allele-specific extension took place along the stretch of target DNA for one-color ddNTP incorporation. The MNPs with fluorophores were spotted on a glass slide to fabricate a "bead array" to discriminate their genotypes. Eight SNP loci of three DNA samples were interrogated, and the experiment demonstrated that it is an efficient method for large-scale SNP genotyping.

Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is informative for human identification, and much shorter regions are targeted in analysis of biallelic SNP compared with highly polymorphic short tandem repeat (STR). Therefore, SNP genotyping is expected to be more sensitive than STR genotyping of degraded human DNA. To achieve simple, economical, and sensitive SNP genotyping for identification of degraded human DNA, we developed 18 loci for a SNP genotyping technique based on the mini-primer allele-specific amplification (ASA) combined with universal reporter primers (URP). The URP/ASA-based genotyping consisted of two amplifications followed by detection using capillary electrophoresis. The sizes of the target genome fragments ranged...
We describe in this report the implementation of the 5'-exonuclease, biallelic PCR assay for SNP genotyping (TaqMan) in a nanofluidic version of a high-density microplate. System performance was assessed using a panel of 32 TaqMan SNP genotyping assays targeted to human polymorphisms. This functional test of the nanoliter fluidic SNP genotyping platform delivered genotyping call rates and accuracies comparable to the same larger volume reactions in microplate systems.
