Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the class of DNA variants that are most common in the genome. Technologies are needed that allow relatively highthroughput, high-quality genotyping of SNPs, with rapid assay development for individual SNPs of interest. We have implemented an accurate and high-throughput SNP genotyping system using a commercially available fluorescent 5 ′ exonuclease assay. Optimization of the assay system for low-volume reactions and low-probe concentrations has
