Sheep 01

The OvineSNP50 BeadChip array features over 54,241 evenly spaced probes that target SNPs, offering more than sufficient SNP density for genome-wide association studies and other applications such as genome-wide selection, determination of genetic merit, identification of quantitative trait loci, and comparative genetic studies. The OvineSNP50 BeadChip provides uniform genome-wide coverage with a mean gap of 46kb. The OvineSNP50 BeadChip covers SNPs validated in many economically important breeds, including more than 75 Ovis aries breeds, generating > 99.9% average call rates with a mean MAF of 0.28. More than 49,000 SNPs were validated across all breeds, with a MAF > 0.05.
