The Infinium ShrimpLD-24 v1.0 BeadChip enables genomic selection and evaluation for family identification within Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei), to advance aquaculture breeding programs. This microarray contains over 6400 genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), validated using family brood stock from multiple existing breeding programs. The array offers:
- Excellent call rates and accuracy
> 99% mean call rate and > 99.9% reproducibility
- High-value content with comprehensive coverage
Evenly distributed polymorphic SNPs with 1 cM mean spacing
- High-throughput and flexible format
Up to 24 samples can be genotyped in parallel
Developed in collaboration with experts in aquaculture, the Infinium ShrimpLD-24 v1.0 BeadChip contains over 6400 evenly spaced markers. These strategically selected and stringently filtered markers provide an overview of the L. vannamei genome, enabling production applications.
This 24-sample BeadChip array, combined with the proven Infinium HD assay, presents a powerful, high-throughput solution for genomic selection and family structure testing in the Pacific white shrimp.
