Would Flex-Seq work on allopolyploid genomes (e.g. strawberry)?

Yes, with the caveat that the SNPs identified allow for the distinction between the different genomes and as long as reference genome and SNP information/locations have been identified.

All Flex-Seq 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 Flex-Seq guidance notes for details on sequence submission.
