The trout array includes 57,500 genetic markers that span the genome. The array includes 17,000 SNP markers that are unique to SNPs discovered in a previous USDA study* and 20,000 markers that are unique to an outbred Norwegian commercial population.

The array is ideal for the following applications:

  • GWAS and quantitative trait locus mapping
  • Identification of economically important traits
  • Improved accuracy in aquaculture breeding programs through genomic selection
  • Differentiation of fish that have different origins
  • Gender determination via sdY chromosome-specific probes
  • Differentiation of farmed and wild populations
