Molecular breeding can significantly reduce the cost and time required to deliver improved plant and animal species for agricultural use. Advancements in genomic technologies are accelerating these breeding programs by enabling higher-throughput genotyping across large populations than ever before.
Applied Biosystems AgriSeq targeted genotyping by sequencing (GBS) solutions are our latest innovation that helps our customers economically deliver high-throughput plant and animal genotypes.
Up to 2.6M genotypes per day for pennies or less per genotype
The AgriSeq targeted GBS solution utilizes a highly efficient multiplexed PCR chemistry where hundreds to thousands of markers can be targeted and uniformly amplified in a single reaction. The amplicon libraries can then be barcoded and pooled for simultaneous sequencing of hundreds of samples on the Ion Torrent suite of next-generation sequencing (NGS) instruments. At a cost of pennies or less per genotype, AgriSeq targeted GBS is capable of generating up to 2.6 million genotypes per day from high-quality NGS data. Whether you’re looking to achieve more accurate marker-assisted breeding selection, or to improve your livestock parentage discrimination and trait monitoring, our solutions can help advance your plant and animal breeding programs.
Custom panel designs, validation and pilot projects
Agricultural genomics can be challenging for a number of reasons, including sequence complexity, high genetic diversity, and limited sequence availability. We offer end-to-end project management services through panel design, wet-lab validation, and data analysis to help ensure delivery of high-performance panels for your project.
