Molecular marker discovery is an important contribution to our customers’ breeding efforts. NGS technologies have played a major role in making these discoveries accessible. Markers are developed for both model organisms with high-quality reference genome sequences, as well as to non-model species with no prior genomic data. Both SNPs and indels can be applied for marker-assisted breeding, e.g. fingerprinting parental lines, building a molecular toolbox, and discovering trait specific markers.

The data is made available to our customers through our proprietary software platform, CROPaware.

Genomic Selection

Genomic selection (GS) is an alternative to marker-assisted selection, which can accelerate the genetic gain through shorter breeding cycles. Genetwister is implementing new breeding schemes and methods that integrate GS for crop improvement.
