Developing a 670k genotyping array to tag ~2M SNPs across 24 horse breeds
Recently, for copy number variation (CNV) analysis, bovine researchers have focused mainly on the use of genome-wide SNP genotyping arrays. One of the highest densities commercially available SNPchips for cattle is the Affymetrix axiom genome-wide Bos 1, which assays 648,315 informative SNPs across the whole bovine genome. Here, we describe the microarray data, quality controls and validation implemented in a study published in Genetics and Molecular Research Journal in 2015 . The microarray raw data has been deposited into Gene Expression Omnibus under accession #GSE54813.
