Primers for wheat SNP-Chips

The following files contain designed primers to known markers

Wheat Axiom 820k

The Axiom chip was developed by the WISP, for further information go here

The primers where designed against the pseudomolecules described in IWGSC(2018)[1].

Wheat iSelect 90k

The markers in this section are from the Illumina iSelect chip described in Wang (2014)[2].

The primers were designed against the soft-masked reference as released in ensembl plants IWGSC1[3]. For an updated version of the primers, please look at the primers of the Wheat Axiom 820k section above, which contains the SNPs in the iSelect chip.
