Microarrays are used for genotyping projects that cover one gene, many candidate genes or whole sets of chromosomes in a genome, and are capable of analyzing thousands of Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in parallel. SNP-based linkage disequilibrium maps and haplotypes, either measured directly or calculated from the SNP genotyping data, will be in use in the near future for studies of genome-wide genetic association in common diseases.
