Direct observation of haplotypes is still technically challenging. Here we report a method for the determination of haplotypes through chromosome microdissection. We determined human long-range chromosomal haplotypes with more than 98.85% accuracy at 24,245 genome-wide heterozygous single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci.
