Genetics and Genomics


  • DNA genotyping - Sequenom
  • DNA sequencing - Sanger, Illumina
  • Whole genome shotgun and assembly
  • DNA extraction
  • Molecular marker development
  • Plant fingerprinting, distinctness, uniformity, stability
  • Bioinformatics, including whole genome, population and comparative analyses

Pre-breeding R&D

  • Genetic diversity of natural and cultivated organisms
  • Mutant screening, pathway engineering to increase active components
  • Genetic analysis of agronomic and end-use traits
