whole-genome tiling alternatives

University of Arizona reports the development of a ex-situ microarray platform for rapid and cost-effective genetic mapping, and its evaluation using rice as a model. In contrast to methods employing whole-genome tiling microarrays for genotyping, the alternative method is based on low-cost spotted microarray production, focusing only on known polymorphic features.
