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.

Field trials

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

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.
