Can SeqSNP be used on DNA extracted from insects (e.g. weevil)?

Yes, on the condition that the DNA quality meets minimum requirements and as long as reference genome and SNP information/locations have been identified. All SeqSNP projects require:

  • a reference sequence (genomic or transcriptomic, or a reference scaffold). These can be provided as a link to a publically available genome, or submitted as a FASTA file.
  • a list of SNP locations to be interrogated, submitted as a VCF, Excel or BED file.

Please contact technical and applications support for further information if you have any queries about your organism. Please, also refer to the SeqSNP guidance notes for details on sequence submission.
