Genomics tools for improved plant breeding and production

The discovery of novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is critical for plant genotyping in that it helps to provide candidate markers for marker-assisted selection programs in key crops. Genomic approaches are useful for accelerating variety development and crop improvement. Genomic tools can assist in the detection of QTLs, favorable and deleterious traits and identification of favorable alleles. Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a range of genomic tools and resources to help facilitate your plant breeding and production goals.

AgriSeq targeted genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS)

Applied Biosystems AgriSeq targeted genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) solutions allow for high-throughput analysis of plant genotypes in a flexible and cost-effective manner. Leveraging a highly efficient multiplex chemistry, hundreds to thousands of genetic loci can be simultaneously targeted and efficiently amplified in a single reaction. Libraries are then processed for next-generation sequencing (NGS) where hundreds of samples can be barcoded and sequenced in the same run. Capable of generating up to 2.6 million genotypes per day from high-quality NGS data at pennies per data point, AgriSeq targeted GBS represents the future of technology to help advance your plant research.

AgriSeq chemistry is designed for analysis of SNP panels of 50–5,000 markers. Customized panels designed to target your relevant markers will help to accelerate variety development and crop improvement. Our dedicated team of agrigenomics bioinformatics professionals have designed a range of successful panels for plants ranging from corn, soybean, tomato, cotton, cucumber, spinach, and many more.

Custom TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assays

These assays provide a highly flexible technology for detection of polymorphisms within any genome. Create your own assays by submitting target sequences to our secure assay design pipeline using the Applied Biosystems Custom TaqMan Assay Design Tool. This pipeline has successfully generated millions of assay designs by utilizing heuristic rules deduced from both manufacturing and assay performance data. TaqMan Assays can be run on any of our real-time PCR instruments or used as an endpoint assay on other third-party systems, including the Array Tape platform.
