Plant breeding for the future using Applied Biosystems Axiom and Eureka Genotyping Platforms

Plant breeding for the future using the Applied Biosystems Axiom and Eureka genotyping platforms

Jason Nicholas, Senior team leader at Syngenta, shares how the Thermo Fisher Scientific  Axiom and Eureka platforms provide advantages in terms of cost and turn-around time that contribute to the ability to conduct low-medium density genotyping at the scale needed to meet Syngenta’s molecular breeding targets. Jason also touches upon the future of genomic applications in crops.

Genomics and Increased Selection Accuracy in Aquaculture

Genomics and increased selection accuracy in aquaculture

Matt Baranski, General Manger, Mowi (formerly known as Marine Harvest), describes the company’s process for ensuring the best-quality product possible. The company rears eggs and produces feed in-house. They use the most advanced tools available to make fish selection as accurate and as high quality as possible for their customers. As part of this approach, breeding plans focus on genomic selection for economically important traits.

Reducing Greenhouse Emissions: Genomic Testing of Every Cow in Ireland

Reducing greenhouse emissions: genomic testing of every cow in Ireland

Learn how Dr. Andrew Cromie, the technical director of the Irish Cattle Breeding Federation (ICBF), has been overseeing the mass genotyping of Irish cattle using genomics tools for the primary objective of genetic improvement of dairy and beef cattle in Ireland. The ICBF is currently using the Axiom Genotyping Platform to collect the data necessary to take that improvement to the next level.

Doing Citizen Science with the Axiom Genotyping Solution

Doing citizen science with the Axiom genotyping solution

Dr. Karlsson, Assistant Professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, has successfully identified genes related to canine obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in doberman pinschers. Canine OCD is highly heritable, making it an ideal candidate for genomic research. Dr. Karlsson and her colleagues used gene arrays to compare dobermans with and without OCD symptoms, and identified a gene also implicated in human OCD whose protein product stabilizes connections between glutaminergic neurons.
