These researchers are using MSI for several projects. The first set of four projects involves genome-wide association studies (GWAS) on datasets generated from the SNP genotyping arrays. The group is using variants discovered from whole genome sequence (WGS) to impute from low density (54,000) to higher density ~1,800,000 variants for GWAS. They are using this data to create a haplotype map and an imputation resource for the domestic horse. The researchers are also using whole-genome sequence data to discover novel variants for follow-up after GWAS for six different phenotypes. They also have three projects where they are using RNA-seq for transcriptome and gene expression analysis.
