Cordeiro, GM, Eliott, FG, McIntyre, CL & Henry, RJ 2006, 'Methods for SNP identification and analysis in the sugarcane genome', paper presented to the Tropical Crop Biotechnology Conference, Cairns, Qld., 16-19 August.


The sugarcane genome poses the challenge of being highly polyploid and requiring ingenuity to overcome impediments of straightforward genome analyses methods that are often taken for granted in simpler genomes and inbred species. We have developed and evaluated a number of technologies to accurately locate and score the level of frequency of a SNP at any individual locus.
