Wheat 90k SNP dataset

The ‘WAGTAIL 90k Illumina iSelect genotypic dataset’: access conditions and data download

This dataset consists of 26,015 SNPs across 480 bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) accessions. SNP genotyping was performed using the wheat 90k Illumina iSelect SNP array (Wang et al., 2014. Doi: 10.1111/pbi.12183). Genotypes were predominantly sourced from the UK, France, Germany, and the Netherlands, but also includes accessions from Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA.

This pre-publication data are being made available under the principles of the Toronto Agreement that grants NIAB and the WAGTAIL consortium (BBSRC project BB/J002542/1) the right to publish the first global analyses of the data. This includes descriptions of genome-level whole chromosome-level and pedigree-level analyses.

By accessing and downloading the data, you agree to this principle, and agree to cite the following acknowledgement when disseminating the data: ‘Wheat 90k SNP data were generated by NIAB within the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) LINK project, “Wheat Association Genetics for Trait Advancement and Improvement in Lineages: WAGTAIL” (BBSRC reference BB/J002542/1), along with academic project partners at The University of Reading and the John Innes Centre and industrial collaborators at Elsoms Seeds Ltd, KWS-UK Ltd, Lantmännen SW Seed AB, Limagrain UK Ltd, RAGT, Saaten Union Biotech GmbH, Sejet Planteforædling, and Syngenta Seeds Ltd.’

On first publication of the data by NIAB and the WAGTAIL consortium, a link to the publication will be added to this webpage.
