博客 - Rice is a crucial staple food for about half a billion people in Asia, but it suffers from diseases that reduce yields, destroy harvests and put food security and livelihoods at risk. But there is hope – by tracking DNA markers of natural genetic variants through generations of crosses, breeders can identify better combinations that enrich crop vitality and resilience leading to more reliable and sustainable rice production.
博客 - From our origins testing tobacco, alcohol and food products for adulteration in the 19thcentury, LGC has built a commitment to using science for a safer world.
博客 - Pharmacogenetics, or the study of how people respond differently to medicines due to their genetics, is making a splash lately thanks to companies like Minneapolis, MN-based OneOme, which co-developed its RightMed test with Mayo Clinic
博客 - Recently, molecular biologists from LGC enabled a cutting edge study in collaboration with researchers from Brazil and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to look for mutations in a sample of 516 male volunteers that could be used as clinical indicators for malaria-related complications
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
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?
博客 - Plant and animal breeding programs often take generations to improve quality and yield but using a genotyping protocol with targeted sequencing can bring you genetic gains faster. Could your plant- or animal breeding program use a boost?
博客 - Companion diagnostics are commonly qualitative yes/no tests that usually indicate whether or not a patient would have been included in the phase III trial that led to the approval of the companion diagnostic
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
博客 - Recently, Ben Meadows shared his thoughts on the value of trade shows like SLAS and how our tools are solving customer problems.
