The MaizeSNP50 DNA Analysis Kit enables the interrogation of genetic variation across maize lines. Illumina developed this BeadChip array in collaboration with TraitGenetics, the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA), and Syngenta, with the SNP content selected from several public and private sources. This BeadChip contains more than 50,000 validated markers derived from the B73 reference sequence.
The highly polymorphic SNP content on the MaizeSNP50 BeadChip was subjected to rigorous functional testing across over 30 diverse maize lines to ensure strong performance. Importantly, this BeadChip presents an average of greater than 25 markers per megabase (Mb), providing ample SNP density for robust whole-genome genotyping studies. In addition, the MaizeSNP50 marker set increases the ability to perform corn genetic mapping and marker assisted breeding.
The MaizeSNP50 BeadChip provides high call rates and allows for flexible content deployment.
