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.
