GGP Equine

Item No.  457

GGP Equine is a robust and multipurpose tool that serves as a foundation for many research and commercial applications.

  • Genome-wide association studies
  • Identification of genes and polymorphisms that contribute to traits of interest
  • Development of genomic predictions and enhanced breeding values
  • Foundation for validation, translation, delivery of health, and trait markers to users such as horse owners, breeders, and veterinarians

Originally based on Illumina’s Equine SNP50 platform, this beadchip was created with data generated by the Equine Genome Mapping Workshop and Broad Institute’s Equine Genome Sequencing Project using SNPs from Arabian, Andalusian, Akhal-Teke, Icelandic, Standardbred, Thoroughbred, and Quarter Horse breeds. Our GGP Equine has undergone multiple iterations to improve coverage and minor allele frequency across many major horse breeds. Developed using the Multiple Objective Local Optimization (MOLO) algorithm1, GGP Equine includes over 70,000 evenly distributed single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with an average minor allele frequency of 0.26.

In addition to SNP content available for research and discovery, GGP Equine also includes specific published markers associated with relevant health conditions, physical traits, Y chromosome markers, and over 1000 mitochondrial markers useful for research and breeding organizations.

Species Equine
Assay Sample Size Submit samples in batches of 24
Submission Information

DNA requirement is 300–500 ng at 20 ng/ul concentration.

DNA samples can be shipped in screw-cap tubes or PCR plates. It’s best to send DNA dried down at low temp to avoid evaporation or leakage during transport. DNA in suspension should be shipped on dry ice.
