Genetic test

With the recent advances of techniques such as sequencing and molecular biology one has nowadays access to an increasing number of animal gene markers producing readily recognizable genetic traits (phenotype). These gene markers can be associated for instance with disease susceptibility or health disorders, production performance (growth rate, milk production, ...), coat colours, meat quality, ...

These gene markers are of particularly high interest for the animal breeders to expedite their selection programmes and make them more robust.

Progenus routinely carries out gene markers analysis with the following animals:

  • Bovine
  • Horse
  • Pig
  • Sheep
  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Birds
  • Others on request

Progenus can also develop tailor-made gene markers analysis tests.
