The BovineSNP50 v2 BeadChip contains 54,609 highly informative SNPs uniformly distributed across the entire genome of major cattle breed types, empowering applications such as genome-wide enabled selection, identification of quantitative trait loci, evaluation of genetic merit of individuals, and comparative genetic studies.
This BeadChip was developed by Illumina in collaboration with the USDA-ARS, University of Missouri, and the University of Alberta. More than 24,000 SNP probes target novel SNP loci that were discovered by sequencing three pooled populations of economically important beef and dairy cattle using Illumina's Genome Analyzer. Additional content is derived from publicly available sources such as the bovine reference genome, Btau1, and the Bovine HapMap Consortium data set. All SNP probes have been validated in 19 common beef and dairy breeds. This product targets evenly distributed SNPs that are polymorphic across the breeds tested and provides an average probe spacing of 49.4kb and a median spacing of 36.9kb.
The BovineSNP50 BeadChip is a multi-sample genotyping panel powered by Illumina's Infinium HD Assay. This assay provides the industry's highest call rates, allows for flexible content deployment, and enables the detection and measurement of copy number variation.
Supporting the most comprehensive genome-wide genotyping studies, the 777,000 SNP BovineHD BeadChip expands the diversity of bovine breeds assessed in genetic prediction and enables more discoveries of quantitative traits.
