DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-3979-9

[…] complete pin184 population were custom genotyped with the infinium 8303 potato array (8.3 k solcap snp array) at the life & brain center (department of genomics, bonn, germany) on an illumina iscan system, applying the infinium assay. the genotypes of bi-allelic snp markers in the pin184 population were called using the software package ‘fittetra’ []. the package was run using […]

[…] annotation, filtering and interpretation of the variants was done using variantdb []., illumina snp-array data were previously obtained from 30 samples using a humancytosnp-12 v2.1 beadchip on an iscan system, following standard protocols as provided by the manufacturer (illumina). snp genotypes were extracted from illumina genomestudio (v2011.1) using the genotyping module (v.1.9.4). […]

[…] history of diagnosed cardiovascular disease at the time of recruitment. (see supplementary information for more details). dna samples were run on the cardio-metabochip and scanned on the illumina® iscan platform by agresearch limited (invermay, new zealand)., quality control with summary analysis of allele and genotype frequencies, hardy-weinberg equilibrium tests, and missing genotype rates […]
