Many plant species are polyploid organisms with multiple homologous chromosomes, which often complicates genetic analysis. Illumina has developed the GenomeStudio Polyploid Clustering Module, which features powerful DBSCAN and OPTICS algorithms, to help researchers analyze genotyping data from polyploid genomes.
This webinar, presented by Cindy Lawley, Ph.D., Global Agriculture Consortia Program Manager at Illumina, demonstrates how to use the Polyploid Clustering Module. Topics include: starting a project, optimizing cluster detection sensitivity, manually adjusting clusters, importing cluster positions, and exporting cluster data. The webinar also covers analysis of the wheat genome to demonstrate how to use the Polyploid Clustering Module to study a complex genome.
