High-Value Genotyping for Aquaculture Species: An Interview with Dr. Tiago Hori

For Dr. Tiago Hori, director of aquaculture innovation at Atlantic Aqua Farms, the challenge of bringing targeted genotyping by sequencing (GBS) into aquaculture was making sequencing technology economically feasible. The solution that Dr. Hori found was the AgriSeq platform, and it is working wonders for Atlantic Aqua Farms.


The Future of Equine Studbooks: Genotyping by Sequencing with Agriseq

Verifying, establishing, and maintaining pedigree records for animals is a sophisticated and longstanding practice, and one that has changed dramatically over the years. For Weatherbys Scientific, that means bringing cutting-edge genotyping-by-sequencing technology into this venerable field.


Targeted GBS Flexibility Accelerates Genomic Breeding Programs

Aaron Larsen, Chief Science Officer with United Bio Research, Inc. explained recently why he has been using Applied Biosystems AgriSeq targeted genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) workflows in conjunction with the Thermo Fisher Scientific GeneStudio system to develop customized solutions for cattle breeders.


How AgriSeq is Shaping the Future of Argentinian Agriculture

With soybeans representing a large fraction of global agriculture, any advance in yield, disease resistance, tolerance to changing environmental conditions or other traits stands to help feed millions upon millions of people, both directly and through refined products such as soybean oil. Dr. Gaspar Malone is GDM’s manager of biotechnology research, and has recently incorporated Thermo Fisher Scientific’s AgriSeq genotyping-by-sequencing solution into GDM Seeds’s development process.

Next Generation Sequencing-icon

AgriSeq NGS Solutions

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. Costing pennies or less per data point, AgriSeq targeted GBS solutions are capable of generating up to 2.6 million genotypes per day from high-quality NGS data.
