White Spruce SNPs

An atlas of over 200,000 gene SNPs has been developed for white spruce (Picea glauca), with a true-positive rate of 92% (Pavy et al 2013a). These high-confidence SNPs are representative of over 17,000 expressed genes following the catalog of white spruce expressed genes (Rigault et al 2011; ftp://ftp.gydle.com/pub/arborea​). True-positive rate has been determined with genotyping using high throughput  Illumina Infinium chips (Pavy et al 2013b). Work is underway to expand this resource. High-confidence SNPs have been deposited in the public repository dbSNP of NCBI (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/SNP/snp_viewBatch.cgi?sbid=1058878).

Black Spruce SNPs

An atlas of nearly 100,000 gene SNPs has been developed for black spruce (Picea mariana), with a true-positive rate of 96% (Pavy et al 2016). These high-confidence SNPs are representative of nearly 15,000 genes following the white spruce nomenclature of expressed genes (Rigault et al 2011). True-positive rate has been determined with genotyping using a high throughput Illumina Infinium chip (Pavy et al 2016). SNPs have been deposited in the public repository dbSNP of NCBI (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/SNP/snp_viewBatch.cgi?sbid=1059737).

Other spruces

Work is underway to produce a similar gene SNP atlas for Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis). A similar gene SNP atlas for Norway spruce (Picea abies) is also planned to be released in 2018.
