Cassava SNP Markers

Cassava:

  • A total of 2,954 putative SNPs were identified. Of these 1,536 SNPs from 1,170 contigs and 53 cassava genotypes were selected for SNP validation using Illumina’s GoldenGate assay. As a result 1,190 SNPs were validated technically and biologically. The location of validated SNPs on scaffolds of the cassava genome sequence (v.4.1) is provided. Ferguson et.al 2012, Table1,Table2.
  • A total of 186 SNPs (136 from ESTs and 50 from BAC ends) were identified. Lopez et.al 2005.
  • Kawuki et.al. 2009 elucidate the potential of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for measuring genetic diversity in cassava. A total of 26 SNPs were identified from quality sequences of nine genes, giving an estimated frequency of one SNP every 121 nucleotides.
