Cheap genome sequencing technology has made it possible to search for genomic variants called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for hundreds of individuals. Linking these genomic variants to phenotypes is the main goal in running genome‐wide association studies (GWAS). SNPs can be discovered and called using different technologies and methods, and subsequent quality control must be performed taking into account the species of study and genotyping techniques. GWAS can be performed using different mathematical approaches, demonstrated within the current range of software packages, which are used to perform the GWAS and interpret the subsequent results.
