BackgroundAnimal identification is pivotal in governmental agricultural policy, enabling the management of subsidy payments, movement of livestock, test scheduling and control of disease. Advances in bovine genomics have made it possible to utilise inherent genetic variability to uniquely identify individual animals by DNA profiling, much as has been achieved with humans over the past 20 years. A DNA profiling test based on bi-allelic single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers would offer… 

Comparison of the effectiveness of microsatellites and SNP panels for genetic identification, traceability and assessment of parentage in an inbred Angus herd

The degree of information provided by SNPs for a consanguineous herd of cattle was compared with that provided by STRs and it was shown that 24 SNPs were equivalent to the ISAG minimal recommended set of 12 STRs.

Penalized classification for optimal statistical selection of markers from high-throughput genotyping: application in sheep breeds.

The identification of individuals' breed of origin has several practical applications in livestock and is useful in different biological contexts such as conservation genetics, breeding and

Genetic traceability of cattle using an OpenArray genotyping platform.

New platforms using singlenucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) offer several advantages over the traditional microsatellite analysis, and 32 SNPs with an even distribution over the genome and minimum allele frequencies between 0.5 and 0.4 were selected.

Evaluation of six single nucleotide polymorphisms for bovine traceability in the context of the argentine-chinese beef trade

The results of the genetic characterization of four of the main Chinese cattle populations and of the principal breeds raised in Argentina and in the world suggest that these SNP markers can be successfully used as a part of an effective traceability system for the identification of cattle breed origin in the context of the Chinese meat imports and in particular in the Argentine-Chinese beef trade.

Genome-wide selection of discriminant SNP markers for breed assignment in indigenous sheep breeds

The results indicated that the combined use of the SDA and LDA techniques represents an efficient strategy for selecting a reduced pool of highly discriminant markers.

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;

Use of SNPs from Illumina BovineSNP50K BeadChip v3 for imputation of microsatellite alleles for parentage verification and QTL reporting

The present study aimed to test the possibility of avoiding expensive retesting of the whole parental generation for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), to provide additional analysis of

Ultra-small SNP panels to uniquely identify individuals in thousands of samples

First study that has demonstrated for large datasets, that ultra-small SNP panels with 20–23 SNPs can generate unique genotypes for up to ~80 000 individuals, allowing for 100% matching accuracy.

A 48 SNP set for grapevine cultivar identification

A set of 48 stable SNP markers with a high discrimination power and a uniform genome distribution (2-3 markers/chromosome), which is proposed as a standard set for grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) genotyping are proposed.



Selection and use of SNP markers for animal identification and paternity analysis in U.S. beef cattle

This report describes a set of 32 highly informative SNP markers distributed among 18 autosomes and both sex chromosomes in U.S. beef cattle populations, which allow the design of robust, accurate genotype assays on a variety of high-throughput SNP genotyping platforms.

Detection and characterization of SNPs useful for identity control and parentage testing in major European dairy breeds.

An initial set of 37 SNP markers together with a gender-specific SNP for identity control and parentage testing in the Holstein, FleckVieh and Braunvieh breeds is presented.

Genome-Wide Survey of SNP Variation Uncovers the Genetic Structure of Cattle Breeds

Data show that cattle have undergone a rapid recent decrease in effective population size from a very large ancestral population, possibly due to bottlenecks associated with domestication, selection, and breed formation.

Genetic control of conventional labeling through the bovine meat production chain by single nucleotide polymorphisms using real-time PCR.

This study demonstrates that despite the precautions adopted over the meat production chain, some critical points still exist that cause the loss of a correct association between registration numbers and samples.

Linkage disequilibrium in the North American Holstein population.

The pattern observed in this study indicated linkage disequilibrium in the current dairy cattle population could be exploited to refine mapping resolution and imply a loss of genetic diversity because of the high rate of inbreeding and high selection intensity in dairy cattle.

Exclusion probabilities of 22 bovine microsatellite markers in fluorescent multiplexes for semiautomated parentage testing.

A rapid and efficient non-organic method for extraction of DNA from semen is described, and the probability that an alleged parent will be falsely included as a parent is estimated to be in the range of 1/716 to 1/2845.

Informativity assessment for biallelic single nucleotide polymorphisms

The number N, the equivalent number of maximally informative SNPs, is suggested as a measure of marker informativity in the context of kinship testing because Linear regression analysis of a large number of simulated SNP sets reveals that only a minor linear correction of N is required for large n.

SNP genotyping: technologies and biomedical applications.

This article presents a review of SNP genotyping techniques and examines their principles of genotype determination in terms of allele differentiation strategies and detection methods.

The Structure of Haplotype Blocks in the Human Genome

It is shown that the human genome can be parsed objectively into haplotype blocks: sizable regions over which there is little evidence for historical recombination and within which only a few common haplotypes are observed.

Biological identification systems: genetic markers.

The authors briefly review the development of biological identification technologies and then consider in more detail the application of current DNA testing technologies to issues of traceability of live animals and derived products.
