Development of SNP markers for Ayous (Triplochiton scleroxylon K. Schum) an economically important tree species from tropical West and Central Africa
182 SNP markers were developed for Ayous (Triplochiton scleroxylon K. Schum) by incorporating information from two next generation sequencing approaches (RADseq Floragenex and AFLPseq IonTorrent PGM) into a single genotyping panel for MassARRAY® iPLEX™. This set of markers was successfully used to genotype 753 individuals from 43 populations in five Tropical West and Central African Countries. These loci have an expected heterozygosity range of 0.007–0.501 and F ST from 0 to 0.306.
