Illumina Launches New Wheat Barley Array

Illumina Launches New Wheat Barley Array

Wheat is a vital food crop, ranking third in global crop pro­duction, with more than 760 million tons being produced annually. Barley is another important crop with uses in animal feed and beverage produc­tion and is gaining popularity in human diets.Wheat (and barley) researchers and breeders need a genomic analysis tool that enable comparison across diverse varieties and globally diverse germplasm collections.

MUMBAI, 10 May 2021: Wheat is a vital food crop, ranking third in global crop pro­duction, with more than 760 million tons being produced annually. Barley is another important crop with uses in animal feed and beverage produc­tion and is gaining popularity in human diets.Wheat (and barley) researchers and breeders need a genomic analysis tool that enable comparison across diverse varieties and globally diverse germplasm collections. 
 
This newly launched Illumina Infinium™ Wheat Barley 40K v1.0 BeadChip, is designed and created by researchers at Agriculture Victoria in Australia in collaboration with Intergrain. This is the first commercial design that delivers on this need with SNP content representative of worldwide germplasm and has utility for both breeding and research applications.  
 

This design combined with the market leading Infinium XT platform enables:

 
· Analysis of 22,163 wheat and/or 12,889 barley SNPs in parallel
 
· Accurate imputation from diverse backgrounds enabling comparisons across global varieties
 
· High-throughput analysis of up to 96 wheat and barley samples in parallel on each BeadChip
 
· High-quality data with 99 percent average call rates and 99.9 percent reproducibility
 

With imputation power across global wheat and barley varieties, this BeadChip supports numerous applications:

 
· Germplasm characterization of H. vulgare; hexaploid wheat, from bread to synthetic wheat; tetraploid wheat, from T. diccocumto T. durum 
 
· Trait dissection, from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to genetic mapping
 
· Marker-assisted selection
 
· Genomic prediction
 
· Tracking of trait introgressions from related species
 
On 15 April 2021, the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium(IWGSC) organized a webinar entitled "Novel design of imputation-enabled SNP arrays for dual hybridization of wheat and barley" presented by Gabriel Keeble-Gagnère (Agriculture Victoria Research, Australia). The recording of the webinar is available here: https://www.wheatgenome.org/IWGSC-Activities/Webinars/Novel-design-of-imputation-enabled-SNP-arrays-for-dual-hybridization-of-wheat-and-barley
