Thanks to information generated by our genome sequencing projects and resequencing of intraspecific diversity, we produced and released SNP databases.

We also have used SNP and InDel databases for developing and validating SNP arrays and InDel markers and for generating SNP-based genetic maps.


SNP chips

SNP arrays have been developed for black poplar, wheat, peach, and grape.

Genetic maps

Genetic maps have been developed for wheat and Norway spruce.
