Molecular testing is essential to agricultural research in the 21st century. Whole genome sequencing reveals massive information on crop variation while genetic screening enables efficient breeding through marker-assisted selection. These powerful new techniques are used to select for desirable traits in seed stock and monitor crops at early stages of development. The fruit of this labor is drought-tolerant, high-yield, and disease-resistant crops that save farmers time and money.
Whether you are predicting desirable traits in progeny, screening for disease susceptibility, or testing crop quality and purity, Biosearch Technologies offers oligonucleotide components for your genome research in agricultural biotechnology.

|Cauliflower mosaic virus |
Brown stem rot in soybeans
Leaf blotch in barley
Botrytis bunch rot
Phytic acid storage in soybeans
Xanthomonas fragariae infections in strawberries
Nosema ceranae infections in bees
Botrytis cinerea infections in grapes
With over 20 years of industry experience, Biosearch Technologies excels in the manufacture of sophisticated oligonucleotides for genetic analysis. As the inventor of the Black Hole Quencher® (BHQ®), CAL Fluor®, and Quasar® dyes, Biosearch has proven expertise in the synthesis of fluorescent-labeled probes for gene expression analysis, SNP genotyping, and fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH). Biosearch also enables genome research to the next level by offering RealTimeDesign™ software to allow scientists to design qPCR probes and primers for free, online at www.biosearchtech.com/realtimedesign.
