Molecular genetic markers represent one of the most powerful tools for the analysis of genomes and enable the association of heritable traits with underlying genomic variation. Molecular marker technology has developed rapidly over the last decade and two forms of sequence based marker, Simple Sequence Repeats (SSRs), also known as microsatellites, and Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) now predominate applications in modern genetic analysis. The reducing cost of DNA sequencing has led to… Expand

Single nucleotide polymorphism discovery from wheat next-generation sequence data.
TLDR
This work produced wheat transcriptome sequence data using 454 sequencing technology and applied this for SNP discovery using a modified autoSNPdb method, which integrates SNP and gene annotation information with a graphical viewer, to identify 38 928 candidate SNPs. Expand

TLDR
The current paper provides a brief overview of the present - day application of microsatellites markers in animal breeding and make significant contribution to the overall farm animal health and resistance to disease. Expand
COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO DETECT SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE POLYMORPHISM (SNP) IN NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCES: A REVIEW
TLDR
The implementations of Bioinformatics approach reduce the development cost of SNPs as it uses publicly available sequences from databases like expressed sequence tags (ESTS) that cause the development of SNP markers rapid and less expensive. Expand
Future tools for association mapping in crop plants.
TLDR
Several tools are described that include autoSNPdb for SNP discovery from assembled sequence data; TAGdb for the identification of gene specific paired read Illumina GAII data; CMap3D for the comparison of mapped genetic and physical markers; and BAC and Gene Annotator for the online annotation of genes and genomic sequences.

Discovery of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Complex Genomes Using SGSautoSNP
TLDR
A pipeline for the robust identification ofSNPs in large and complex genomes using Illumina second generation DNA sequence data is developed and demonstrated by the discovery of SNPs in the hexaploid wheat genome. Expand
Molecular markers and their Potentials in Animal Breeding and Genetics
TLDR
The overall improvement in livestock species is greatly aided through the use of molecular markers as these markers can be used simply as reference points in transgenic breeding to identify the animals with specific transgenes or to select the genes/genomic regions that affect economic traits through markerassisted selection.

SNP-PHAGE – High throughput SNP discovery pipeline
TLDR
SNP-PHAGE provides a bioinformatics solution for high throughput SNP discovery, identification of common haplotypes within an amplicon, and GenBank submissions and can serve as a starting point for groups interested in developing SNP markers. Expand

TLDR
Haplotype-based analysis is more informative than analysis based on individual SNPs, and has more power in analyzing association with phenotypes in crop species such as corn and soybean. Expand
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs): a new paradigm in molecular marker technology and DNA polymorphism detection with emphasis on their use in plants
TLDR
The different methods of SNP discovery and detection, along with examples of some known uses of SNPs in plant sys­ tems are described in this article. Expand
Large-scale identification and analysis of genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphisms for mapping in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
Analysis of STS-derived SNPs shows that most SNPs are rare, but that it is possible to identify intermediate frequency framework markers that can be used for genetic mapping in many different combinations of accessions. Expand
The utility of single nucleotide polymorphisms in inferences of population history
TLDR
The ability of single-locus phylogeography to determine the timing of speciation events and the historical demography of populations has been overestimated and a suite of unlinked nuclear genetic markers that can capture a genome-wide picture of the population history is required. Expand
A general approach to single-nucleotide polymorphism discovery
TLDR
A unified approach to the discovery of variations in genetic sequence data of arbitrary DNA sources is presented, using the rapidly emerging genomic sequence as a template on which to layer often unmapped, fragmentary sequence data and to use base quality values to discern true allelic variations from sequencing errors.

Mining for Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and Insertions/Deletions in Maize Expressed Sequence Tag Data1
TLDR
The SNP transition/transversion ratio and insertion/deletion size frequencies correspond to those observed by direct sequencing methods of SNP discovery and suggest that the majority of predicted SNPs and insertion-deletions identified using this approach represent true genetic variation in maize.
