GeneSeek’s advanced genetics have produced chicken arrays that provide maximum genomic coverage of multiple populations of layers, broilers and wild outbred non-commercial breeds for advanced genomic selection programs.
The Affymetrix Axiom whole genome chicken array includes 580,961 highly polymorphic genetic variants chosen from a screening of 1.8M markers. SNP discovery was carried out by resequencing 243 chickens from 24 lines representing both elite commercial and experimental lines.
Create assays tailored directly to your specific needs for targeted region genotyping, validation studies, association studies, or marker-assisted breeding programs. GeneSeek offers custom Illumina Infinium BeadChips and Affymetrix Axiom Arrays as well as less dense marker assisted selection panels.
