  1. Resource Description
    "Birdseed is SNP genotyping algorithm that runs on the Affymetrix 500K, SNP5.0, and SNP6.0 platforms. Although Affymetrix officially supports Birdseed only for SNP6.0, we and others have found that it has excellent performance on the 500K and SNP5.0 platforms as well."
