Wu X, et al.
The authors used the Illumina BovineSNP50 BeadChip to identify SNPs that are associated with body conformation traits in 1,314 Chinese Holstein cattle. Fifty-nine significant SNPs associated with 26 conformation traits were identified, six promising candidate genes were suggested, and four SNPs showed genetic correlation for four pairs of traits.

Tachmazidou I, et al.
The authors genotyped 1,267 individuals from a Greek population isolate on the Illumina HumanExome Beadchip, in search of functional coding variants associated with lipids traits. They found genome-wide significant evidence for association between R19X, a functional variant in APOC3, with increased high-density lipoprotein and decreased triglycerides levels.

Wong D, et al.
The authors present an open access database for the investigation of gene co-expression networks within the cultivated grapevine, Vitis vinifera. The resource was constructed using the latest publicly available microarray datasets from diverse experimental series' using the Affymetrix Vitis vinifera GeneChip and the Roche NimbleGen grape whole-genome microarray chip.
