Genetics Tests

Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) is a single base pair mutation at a specific locus. SNP genotyping is the measurement of genetic variations between members of a species. Because SNPs are conserved during evolution or selection process, they have been proposed as markers for use in quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis and in association studies in place of microsatellites. SNPs can also provide a genetic fingerprint for use in identity testing.

Therefore SNP genotyping is crucial for plant breeders in their selection process, and for plant registration authorities for control of species / cultivars integrity but also to combat frauds.

Using cost effective techniques Progenus offers a fully fledge platform including real-time PCR and next-generation sequencing to detect and discover functional SNPs relevant to your experimental and production goals.
