Axiom™ Genome-Wide Chicken Array Kit

Axiom Chicken Genotyping Array was developed in collaboration with leading academic institutions and commercial poultry companies including the Roslin Institute, Aviagen Ltd, Hy-Line International under BBSRC LINK funding and the German Synbreed project funded by the BMBF.

This genotyping array detects genetic variants in white egg layers, brown egg layers, broilers and outbred non-commercial breeds. The parental high-density information from the array is useful for poultry breeding while markers associated with wild out-bred lines are useful for analysis of genetic diversity among indigenous chicken populations.

Features of Axiom Chicken Genotyping Array:

  • Comprehensive content: Over 580,000 common and rare markers selected from 1.8M tested variants
  • Genome-wide coverage: Well-annotated markers uniformly distributed across the genome in layers and broilers
  • Designed for your breed: Over 24 breeds represented including commercial layers and broilers and non-commercial outbred lines
  • Affordable: High return on investment and lowest available cost per marker
  • Robust assay performance: Includes genotype-tested SNPs that are highly polymorphic and demonstrate a >99% call rate

Applications of Axiom Chicken Genotyping Array:

  • Genome-wide association studies
  • High-resolution genetic mapping
  • Mendelian trait mapping
  • Diversity analysis in indigenous chickens
  • Selection signature analysis

Array format: 96-array plate
