Agrigenomics resources

Genomic selection (GS) is a method that uses high densities of markers interspersed throughout the genome to increase the association between migrating genetic material and phenotype, thus improving prediction accuracy for breeding and genotypic values. However, increasing allele number and the concomitant increase in population sizes puts a strain on time, throughput and resources, thus limiting the scope of this kind of analysis for many. To remove these hurdles, LGC, Biosearch Technologies has developed SeqSNP all-inclusive targeted GBS, which addresses all of these problems with a complete sample to data sequencing service.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation, rice, maize and wheat combine to provide more than half of global caloric intake. LGC, Biosearch Technologies is facilitating the public availability of the detailed genomic information needed to further improve the economic traits of these staple crops, and ultimately help feed the world.
