Is the Mouse Diversity Genotyping Array the mouse version of the Affymetrix Human 6.0 array?
No, although the two arrays have some common attributes. The Mouse Diversity Genotyping Array is the highest density mouse SNP array on the market with probes spaced at regular interval throughout the genome, like the human 6.0 array. However, the Diversity Array was also designed to maximize the capability to discriminate between mouse strains, something obviously not possible with the human array. Affymetrix provides an analysis console to support Human 6.0 data analysis. This console cannot be used for Mouse Diversity Genotyping Array data analysis at this time.
