The Pig Microarray is produced with the
QIAGEN Array-Ready Oligo Set for the Pig Genome (version 1.0) and
the Pig Genome Oligo Extension Set
(version 1.0). The Pig Genome Oligo Set contains 10,665 70-mer probes
representing (10,665) Sus Scrofa gene sequences with a hit to human, mouse,
or pig gene transcript. Some sequences contain a 3' expressed sequence
tag (EST). The Pig Genome Oligo Extension Set contain 2,632 Sus Scrofa
gene sequences with at least one 3' EST. The genelists, data sheets, and
product profiles of the
Pig Genome Oligo Set Version 1.0 and
Pig_extension Genome Oligo Set Version 1.0 are available from Qiagen.
All probes are designed from TIGR Gene Index SsGI Release 5.0 (October 1, 2002).
A TIGR sequence annotation tool has been developed at the Iowa State University.
Users can use it following this link.
Each 13,000 element oligo array is printed on one single slide at the University of Minnesota Microarray Printing Facility and distributed through the U.S. Pig Genome Coordination Program.
