Genotyping by sequencing (GBS) and genotyping arrays have produced a deluge of data on single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in crops. By applying three GBS approaches to three Brassica napus F2 mapping populations and a diversity panel, we show that GBS efficiency is on par with genotyping arrays. We use GBS markers to develop linkage maps and identify a quantitative trait locus for flowering time. Further, we present CropSNPdb, a database for SNPs generated using genotyping arrays. Our growing genotyping capacity, together with public crop databases, will help breeders harness genomic variation to ensure food security.
