An international collaborative effort has developed a SNP Chip for Cotton. This Illumina Infinium genotyping assay will allow genotyping of up to 90,000 attempted bead types, with 70,000 included in the public “fixed content”. The remaining 20,000 attempted bead types are available as “add-on content”. The consortium effort has included all currently published SNP development works as well as some sets of in press SNP data sets. The fixed content will primarily target intra-specific Gossypium hirsutum SNPs, but will also contain markers which target inter-specific SNPs for G. barbadense, G. tomentosum, G. mustelinum, G. armourianum, and G. longicalyx. The inter-specific targeted SNP are all developed relative to G. hirsutum and will greatly enable introgression work. This talk will discuss the international consortium effort to develop the SNP Chip for Cotton, the data sets utilized in the effort and distribution and development of the fixed content.
