Evaluation of the OvineSNP50 chip for use in four South African sheep breeds (Short communication)

  • 2016
  • Issue: 1
  • Volume: 46
L. Sandenbergh, S.W.P. Cloete, R. Roodt-Wilding, M.A. Snyman & A.E. Bester-van der Merwe Page: 89 - 93

Relatively rapid and cost-effective genotyping using the OvineSNP50 chip holds great promise for the South African sheep industry and research partners. However, SNP ascertainment bias may influence inferences from the genotyping results of South African sheep breeds. Therefore, samples from…
