Marker-assisted selection (MAS) and Marker-assisted breeding (MAB)

KASP™ genotyping chemistry in MAS allows greater numbers of assays to be rapidly developed and genotyped in a highly flexible and industry proven manner.

SNP validation

SNP marker development for a genome screening tool is based on three detection, validation & selection.

Field trials

Most of the traits considered are in animal and plant genetic improvement programmes. LGC is helping to shape livestock research.

Sample QC / QA – Speciation

LGC offers a predictable, sustainable & cost-effective way to make genetic advances using MAS. The technologies are not gel-based, labour intensive or time consuming.

Marker-assisted selection (MAS) in plant and animal breeding (MAB) graph

Existing use of Marker-assisted selection (MAS) in plant & animal breeding (MAB) involves a high level of expenditure, in terms of SNP assays, equipment and informatics.

KASP™ genotyping chemistry in MAS has become the “global benchmark* technology allowing greater numbers of assays to be rapidly developed and genotyped in a highly flexible and industry proven manner.
