Marker-assisted selection (MAS) and Marker-assisted breeding (MAB)
Existing use of Marker-assisted selection (MAS) in plant & animal breeding (MAB) involves a high level of expenditure, in terms of SNP assays, equipment and informatics.
KASP™ genotyping chemistry in MAS has become the “global benchmark”* technology allowing greater numbers of assays to be rapidly developed and genotyped in a highly flexible and industry proven manner.
