The PorcineSNP60 DNA Analysis Kit v2 features 65,000 evenly spaced probes, offering more than sufficient SNP density for whole-genome association studies, determination of genetic merit, identification of quantitative trait loci, and comparative genetic studies.
This 24-sample BeadChip presents a solution for interrogating genetic variation in multiple porcine breeds, including Duroc, Landrace, Pietran, and Large White. A semi-custom version of the BeadChip, the PorcineSNP60+ DNA Analysis Kit v2, allows researchers to include up to 25,000 additional custom probes for targeted studies.
The Porcine SNP Chip Consortium made the final selection of the highest quality markers from more than 510,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), after combining novel discovered SNPs with several other existing databases and study results.
The panel was optimized using multiple criteria for marker selection, including minor allele frequency determined from representative sample sequencing, allele count, quality score, spacing, location, and validation status.
