Additional Information

Axiom Porcine Genotyping Array (Axiom_PigHDv1) for pig genotyping was designed through the Affymetrix- Expert Design Program by Dr. Martien Groenen at Wageningen University, Netherlands, and Dr. Alan Archibald at The Roslin Institute, United Kingdom.

Axiom Porcine Genotyping Array is available in 96-array format and includes 658,692 markers discovered using whole-genome sequence data from 210 animals covering a broad range of commercial and non-commercial pig breeds that were selected for their relevance to world-wide breeding programs.1 Powered by Axiom Genotyping Solution, the array offers the highest data completeness, call rates, and reproducibility of any technology available today.

This high-density array offers the power and resolution for a wide range of applications in pig breeding and genomics that include studying marker-trait association, evaluating pure lines, identifying multi-line reference populations, as well as research applications for genome-wide analysis and selective sweep analysis studies. A key benefit of using Axiom Porcine Genotyping Array is the ability to genotype samples without experiencing marker dropout or missing data, which have been observed when using other porcine genotyping products.

Features of Axiom Porcine Genotyping Array

  • Expert design: developed by key opinion leaders in the porcine community
  • High resolution
    • 658,692 markers on the array
    • Equal spacing on chromosomes
