Genetic tests

With the recent advances of enabling techniques such as sequencing and molecular biology one has nowadays access to an increasing number of plant gene markers producing readily recognizable genetic traits (phenotype). These gene markers can be associated for instance with disease susceptibility and production performance such growth rate, yields, ...

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

Progenus routinely carries out:

  • Plant gene markers analysis.
  • Design of tailor-made tests matching the specific requirements of the customers.
