Does genomic selection have a future in plant breeding?

An article recently published in Trends in Biotechnology in asks “Does genomic selection have a future in plant breeding?” Genomic selection, which uses genetic markers across the whole genome, is a relatively recent addition to the animal or plant breeders genomic “tool box.” The technology is already in use for dairy cattle breeding, but its application to plant breeding could be...

TOPIGS starts to banish boar taint from dam lines

TOPIGS, a global leader in pig breeding and artificial insemination,  has started to breed sows that produce offspring with less boar taint. At present 4.5% of finisher pigs have boar taint. But with b oar taint now forming  part of the breeding objective within the dam lines of TOPIGS it  is expected that the number of finishers with boar taint will have been...

The most cost effective technique to get your genetic marker

The genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) technology developed by the Institute for Genomic Diversity (IGD), Cornell University allows researchers to generate huge amounts of genetic information. The GBS is a unique technology that allows users to collect data of up to 384 individuals in a single sequencing lane using a protocol with only four basic steps from DNA to data, and at a cost of about...
