Overcoming the need for expensive and labor-intensive array-based solutions, the redundancy of sequenced reads is used to generate accurate genotyping across large batches of individuals in a single sequencing run.
Use genomic information on crops, seeds and livestock to make informed selection and breeding decisions. Screening and prediction of useful or disease-linked traits help to make crucial decisions on the selection and health of the population.
Investigate different organisms in their natural habitat, determine the biodiversity of a territory and evaluate the effect of anthropogenic activities Robust genomic data help to trace migration patterns and aid in the regional and international management of species.
Use genomic data to assess and certify quality, origin and safety of ingredients. Implement innovative traceability strategies that permit sensitive detection of biological contamination and ensure the integrity of any food substrate from raw material to packaged products.
Examine the same subset of genomic regions for thousands of individuals and identify many genetic markers along the genome with the two of the most effective strategies: ddRAD and Allegro SPET Targeted Genotyping.
Plant and animal breeding, ecology and association studies are usually large-scale experiments with massive amount of genetic information to sample and analyze. In these cases, whole genome sequencing remains an unaffordable option. One of the most effective ways to reduce costs is to reduce the genome to a fraction of its size before sequencing without losing precious information.
A technique uses two restriction enzymes to reduce the complexity of genomes allowing to genotype several thousands of loci. Open system for unbiased sampling of genetic variation also in non-referenced organisms.
Single primer enrichment technology patented by NuGEN, developed to specifically target SNPs of interest in large scale genotyping experiments. Delivers uniformly enriched genomic features of organisms with reference sequence.
IGATech has successfully conducted many genotyping experiments on both plants and animals, with genome sizes ranging from hundreds of megabases to tens of gigabases. We pioneered the implementation of the Allegro custom panel in agrigenomics for large scale genotyping
