University of Bristol Collaborates with Affymetrix Inc. on Genotyping Arrays for Guaranteed Sustainability of Wheat Production

Affymetrix Inc. and University of Bristol, Bristol, UK, announced that they have collaboratively designed a wheat genotyping array and analyzed data from experiments as part of an effort to understand wheat genetics and breeding with a goal of ensuring guaranteed sustainable production. Axiom(R) Wheat Genotyping Array (Axiom Wheat Array), consisting of 817,000 markers, was designed for the University of Bristol as part of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC)-funded Wheat Improvement Strategic Program (WISP). The aim of WISP is to produce new and novel wheat germplasm via three complementary "pillars" (landraces, synthetics, and ancestral gene introgression), each of which will broaden the pool of genetic variation in elite wheat cultivars by a different route. The design of Axiom Wheat Array is unique because it includes functional and positional annotation information for a variety of wheat species. The SNPs on Axiom Wheat Array include markers from hexaploid landraces and those from the synthetic and ancestral lines exhibiting different ploidy levels. A subset of the 817,000 markers found on Axiom Wheat Array will be transferred with 100% fidelity onto Axiom 384HT-format arrays to create multiple focused wheat array designs. Each of these Axiom wheat array designs will contain approximately 35,000 markers and each design is expected to serve a different purpose in wheat breeding. The 384HT format enables ultra high-throughput processing of 384 samples simultaneously and will be used to screen thousands of samples in a highly cost-effective manner. Affymetrix will make these new Axiom arrays publicly available before the spring wheat season.
