During the last decade, microsatellites (short tandem repeats or STRs) have been successfully used for animal genetic identification, traceability and paternity, although in recent year single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been increasingly used for this purpose. An efficient SNP identification system requires a marker set with enough power to identify individuals and their parents. Genetic diagnostics generally include the analysis of related animals. In this work, the degree of… 
Comparison of microsatellites and SNPs for pedigree analysis in the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas
TLDR
To compare the utility of microsatellites and SNPs in assigning parentage in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas), 384 parental and offspring individuals were genotyped and it was demonstrated that 100% of the offspring were unambiguously assigned to a pair of parents when nine microsatelliteites or 50 SNPs were used.
A comparison of single nucleotide polymorphism and microsatellite markers for analysis of parentage and kinship in a cooperatively breeding bird
TLDR
This study is the first to compare SNPs and microsatellites for analyses of parentage and relatedness in a species that lives in groups with a complex social and kin structure and should prove informative for those interested in developing SNP loci from transcriptome data when published genomes are unavailable.
Single nucleotide polymorphisms for DNA typing in the domestic horse
TLDR
A developed marker set is both present on current generation SNP chips and can be highly multiplexed in standalone panels and thus is a promising resource for SNP-based DNA typing.
Comparative analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms and microsatellite markers for parentage verification and discovery within the equine Thoroughbred breed
TLDR
This study leverages targeted GBS methods to generate low-density equine SNP profiles and demonstrates the value of SNP based equine parentage analysis in comparison to STRs - particularly when performing partial parentage discovery.
Definition and analysis of the panel of SNPs to be used in paternity tests for three breeds of cattle
In order to define the SNP panel for paternity tests in cattle, genotypes were analyzed in three breeds (number of SNPs evaluated and individuals sampled): Hereford (HER; 202; 1317), Brangus (BRA;
A comparative assessment of SNP and microsatellite markers for assigning parentage in a socially monogamous bird
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a relatively small number of variable SNPs can be effective for parentage analyses in a socially monogamous species and suggested that the development of SNP markers is advantageous for studies that require high‐throughput genotyping or that plan to address a range of ecological and evolutionary questions.
Inference of Breed Structure in Farm Animals: Empirical Comparison between SNP and Microsatellite Performance
TLDR
This study compared genetic patterns derived from microsatellites to that inferred by SNPs, considering three pairs of datasets of sheep and cattle, and showed a very strong consistency between the two types of markers.
An empirical comparison of population genetic analyses using microsatellite and SNP data for a species of conservation concern
TLDR
It is demonstrated that SNPs have three main advantages over microsatellites: more precise estimates of population-level diversity, higher power to identify groups in clustering methods, and the ability to consider local adaptation.
Parentage Analysis in Giant Grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus) Using Microsatellite and SNP Markers from Genotyping-by-Sequencing Data
TLDR
It is found that SNPs had a better potential for relatedness estimation, exclusion of non-parentage and individual identification than microsatellites, and > 98% accuracy of parentage assignment could be achieved by 100 polymorphic SNPs, and contributes to the molecular breeding, fishery management and population conservation.
