Genotyping-by-Sequencing Gaining Ground as Go-to Application for Crop Genomics | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Crop researchers are increasingly turning to next-generation sequencing, citing the declining cost of the technology, the higher complexity of plant genomes compared to animal genomes, and a host of other reasons.

At the same time, vendors like Affymetrix and Illumina, who sell both sequencing and microarray products to crop researchers, say that SNP chips are still very much in demand, especially at private breeding companies that use them to track markers from generation to generation.
