Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) gives an unbiased, comprehensive review of any organism’s genome to discover the best genetic markers for improving agriculture. WGS is easier to use than ever for:
The Rapid Genomics WGS pipeline is automated and optimized to meet agricultural requirements, including for low-pass genome skimming and imputation, without sacrificing even, reliable sequencing depth at any scale. This greatly improves the statistical power of WGS compared to genotyping arrays, while delivering more complete data than genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS).
Working with maize or another species with high repetitive DNA?
In addition to end-to-end WGS solutions, we can help with specialized data analysis and bioinformatics support, including but not limited to:
Use WGS to understand your breeding material, then genotype the best markers for improved breeding selections using Flex-Seq® Ex-L.
