Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: High-throughput, cost-effective genotyping arrays provide a standardized resource for plant breeding communities that can be used for a wide range of applications at a suitable pace for integrating pertinent information into breeding programs. Traditionally, crop research communities will target development of genotyping arrays to facilitate use of genotypic information in breeding programs to accelerate development of cultivars. Array development typically occurs following large-scale efforts to identify sets of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) using various sequencing and genomics analyses. The cotton community produced the first genotyping array in 2015, after which wide-spread utilization of genotyping using the resource increased due to availability of an automated genotyping platform. To date numerous linkage maps and phenotypic associations have been completed with many ongoing efforts. As collection of the data from the CottonSNP63K array and other arrays increases, utility of the collected data can be maximized within the community by good data stewardship and a community-based standard for inclusion of both raw and processed data into the public domain. We will discuss the development of the array, downstream coordination of the community-based data, and outcomes made possible through utilization of the array.
