Eureka Genomics, James Hutton Institute Co-develop Assay to Genotype Barley | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Eureka Genomics said today it is developing a custom assay for genotyping barley in collaboration with Scotland's James Hutton Institute.

The assay, which will be priced at $15 per sample, will allow for the identification of more than 400 SNPs in a single test, giving researchers the option of a low-cost method for identifying and optimizing traits such as yield, quantity, and environmental resilience for commercial crop production, Hercules, Calif.-based Eureka said. It plans to launch the assay next month in Europe and the US.
