Agrigenomic microarray genotyping solutions provide breeders and researchers with powerful and flexible genotyping tools to cost-effectively identify, validate, and screen complex genetic traits in plants and animals. Thermo Fisher Scientific’s broad microarray portfolio of robust, accurate, customizable, and scalable genetic testing products facilitates high-throughput routine screening, marker-assisted selection, genome-wide association studies, quantitative trait loci analyses, parentage, and traceability, all of which help fast-track your genomic selection programs. From plants, livestock, aquaculture, and poultry to companion animals, our microarray technology can provide solutions to meet your everchanging needs.
Agrigenomics microarray genotyping applications
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.
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.
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.
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.
