The BovineSNP50 v3 BeadChip microarray kit contains 53,218 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 22,000 SNP probes target novel SNP loci that were discovered by Illumina sequencing of 3 pooled populations of economically important beef and dairy cattle.
Additional content is derived from publicly available sources such as the bovine reference genome, Btau, and the Bovine HapMap Consortium data set. All SNP probes have been validated in 18 common beef and dairy breeds. This product targets evenly distributed SNPs that are polymorphic across the breeds tested and provides a median spacing of 37.4 kb.
For high-throughput, cost-effective genetic screening, the BovineSNP50 BeadChip array features more than 53,000 evenly spaced SNP probes spanning the bovine genome. For greater flexibility, the BovineSNP50+ version of the BeadChip can be customized to include up to 600,000 additional markers.
Productivity gains and heifer selection are driving returns that are resulting in farm efficiency and competitiveness.Read Interview
