Abstract

The use of informative SNPs for parentage verification instead of microsatellites data has been proposed in the literature given the current availability of such kind of information from the genomic evaluations carried out by most countries. Given this opportunity, Interbull carried out a survey to verify the interest on establishing an international SNP data repository and to determine which business model the eventual new service should have. Most respondents favor the creation of the repository for the purpose of facilitating exchanges among Interbull customers only.
