SNP Genotyping Facility at Michigan State University

A high throughput Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) genotyping facility for potato genotyping is available through the MSU Potato Breeding and Genetics Program. The facility is equipped with an Illumina iScan system.

Cost for Potato Illumina BeadChips and Processing:

We offer a competitive price for the chip and processing of a Potato Illumina BeadChip.  Our team of experts provide high quality results.  Please contact us the number of samples you are planning on running for a quote. 

Requirements for Sample Submission:

When submitting samples, make sure the DNA concentration is determined with PicoGreen (specific for double stranded DNA) and the DNA concentration is in the range of 50-100 ng/ul. We will also check the DNA concentration with PicoGreen. If the DNA concentration is less than 50 ng/ul, we will request you to resubmit the DNA samples. An additional cost will be charged for checking the resubmitted samples. The platform for submission is a 96 well PCR plate with 15ul of DNA for each sample.

Analysis of Data:

Once the genotyping is complete we will send you a data file. The data needs to be processed with Genome Studio software.  If you need a Genome Studio software license, then you need to purchase the license from Illumina directly.
