The latest NGFN project builds on the success of the first project, which focused on developing a control cohort database that would be free and available to the public.
The NGFN will also have access to the next-generation SNP Array 6.
In accelerated timeframes, the HumanHap300-Duo and HumanHap550, two of the three Infinium BeadChips to be used in the NGFN study, have been used to identify novel variants linked to complex conditions such as Type-2 diabetes, Crohn's disease, Parkinson's disease, and Lou Gehrig's disease," said Jay Flatley, Illumina's Chief Executive Officer.
In addition to Illumina's HumanHap300-Duo and HumanHap550 BeadChips, which can detect up to 317,000 and 550,000 genetic variations on a single BeadChip, respectively, the new HumanCNV370-Duo BeadChip will be used as part of the NGFN study.
