Understanding the role of genetics in agriculture

Modern technologies are helping researchers study plant and animal genomics

Plant & Animal Genomics

Today’s agricultural researchers have many tools at their disposal for studying plant and animal genomics. Whether you’re interested in plant biology, crops and livestock, or model organisms, an accurate view of the genetic influence on traits and disease is crucial. As genomics becomes more widely used in agriculture, researchers and breeders are increasingly using Illumina technology to drive discoveries and advances.

Plant and Animal Genomics

Researchers are using microarray and next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies to study various aspects of plant and animal genomics, including genotype, gene expression and regulation, and epigenetics. These approaches offer the throughput, sensitivity, and precision needed to evaluate genetic markers and discover new ones associated with traits or disease.

Methods for Plant and Animal Genomics

Microarrays are ideal for routine screening applications in plant and animal genomics, and the resulting genotype data can inform selection and breeding decisions. Arrays are especially cost-effective for analyzing large sample numbers.

NGS provides a high-resolution view of the genetic variation influencing phenotype and is useful for discovering novel markers. For smaller sample numbers, it offers a low-cost alternative to microarrays.

With an extensive toolset for a wide variety of species and applications, our microarray and sequencing technologies enable agricultural researchers to study virtually any organism.
