This training provides an introduction to the Infinium assay. It lists the steps of the Infinium assay, describes the biochemical mechanism of each step, and explains how different genotypes produce different fluorescence signals.
Recorded Webinar (October 2015) | This webinar is targeted to users of standard Infinium products and custom iSelect BeadChips interested in the basics of assessing data quality in GenomeStudio. We will demonstrate how to use the GenomeStudio Controls Dashboard for effective assay QC and troubleshooting of Infinium genotyping data. The webinar will cover the different types of controls used in the Infinium genotyping assay, where in the assay workflow they come into play, and what the expected outcome is for each of the controls. These concepts will be applied in a live troubleshooting demo in GenomeStudio. A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation.
Recorded Webinar (October 2016) | Clustering using your own samples is necessary for custom array content and will produce the most accurate data for any project, especially for atypical samples such as FFPE samples. This webinar is targeted at new and intermediate users with a basic knowledge of working with Genotyping Data in GenomeStudio and will go over the following topics: Cluster file basics, when to use a custom cluster file, how to create a custom cluster file, and how to filter and manually edit to optimize the cluster file.
Recorded Webinar (June 2018) | This webinar is targeted for new users and introduces the basics of getting started with Infinium Genotyping analysis in GenomeStudio. The following topics are covered: Introduction to Infinium Genotyping Analysis concepts, downloading and Installing GenomeStudio, and GenomeStudio Analysis Workflows.
Recorded Webinar (September 2015) | This webinar will demonstrate the use of some available tools and techniques in the GenomeStudio Genotyping, Methylation, and Expression modules, including heritability and reproducibility analysis, concordance tool, heat map, dendrogram, histogram/frequency plots, image viewing, and scatter plot tools. A Question and Answer period will follow.
Recorded Webinar (November 2017) | Optimize Infinium data quality by following these Infinium Best Practices. For new and experienced users, this webinar will touch on all aspects of the Infinium workflow: Lab setup and maintenance, lab tracking, Infinium assay tips, data management.
Recorded Webinar (June 2017) | Looking for ways to optimize the efficiency of your Infinium genotyping data analysis workflow? Come learn how Beeline 2.0 Software can help! This webinar is targeted to new and intermediate users with a basic knowledge of working with genotyping data in GenomeStudio. We will go over the following topics: Generation of GTC files from Infinium genotyping data, Beeline 2.0 features: QC, filtering, reporting, and GenomeStudio integration, and examples of Infinium genotyping data analysis workflows.
Recorded Webinar (Ocotber 2014) | Join us for a presentation and discussion on the information contained in our manifests for our genotyping, gene expression, and methylation BeadChips. We discuss what a manifest is, and how GenomeStudio utilizes it to generate data from the intensity information recorded by our scanners. We also review the types of information listed in the various manifests, particularly the columns associated with strand assignment, and how that information can be used to decipher the various output reports from GenomeStudio. Finally, we discuss additional resources available from Illumina to enhance our understanding of the manifest content, as well as various tools to supplement the content.
