Read data acquired with the Human Affinities kit can be used for a wide range of population genetics analysis. However, because this kit exhibits allelic read coverage bias distinct from biases in other assays (like shotgun sequencing and other targeted sequencing kits), we recommend that data generated with the Human Affinities kit be used alone for whatever analyses you may perform.

Daicel Arbor Biosciences is currently in the process of generating a list of sites that are not expected to show allelic coverage bias, and thus can be used in conjunction with the unbiased portion of data from other assays. To be notified if this list becomes available, please Contact Us and request to be added to our Human Affinities product notification mailing list.
