Our hungry planet: new tools in agrigenomics are key to food security

博客 - Genomic selection has been instrumental in dairy cattle breeding where it has essentially replaced progeny testing, enabling greater and faster improvements in terms of genetic gain

Genomic selection: methods in crop and animal breeding

博客 - Genomic selection through genotyping is more accurate than conventional breeding methods and promises to revolutionise crop and animal breeding. The question is, which genotyping solution is right for the challenges you face?

Agrigenomics: how can NGS contribute to global food security?

博客 - NGS makes it much easier to apply genome selection, since breeders can more easily design and implement their breeding programmes to develop desirable traits such as drought tolerance, disease resistance, and higher yields

Genomic selection: can it accelerate livestock breeding?

博客 - In this article, we investigate how genomic selection can now provide us with genomic information of increasing complexity, which can be utilised to evaluate polygenic traits such as feed conversion ratio, and how breeders and ranchers can leverage the latest genomic tools to meet the growing global demands on protein consumption
