Analysis Software Evaluating Infinium Genotyping Assay Controls

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.
