Genetic advancements from Neogen® have produced chicken genotyping arrays for genomic selection programmes to provide optimum genomic coverage of both large populations of commercial layers, broilers and wild outbred non-commercial breeds.
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. Neogen offers custom Illumina Infinium BeadChips and Affymetrix Axiom Arrays as well as less dense marker assisted selection panels.
