NeoGen, Center for Aquaculture Technologies Partner on Genotyping Tools

NEW YORK — Food and animal safety firm Neogen said on Thursday that it is working with the Center for Aquaculture Technologies, or CAT, to develop genotyping tools for aquaculture applications.

According to Lincoln, Nebraska-based Neogen, the companies will adapt sequencing and genotyping technologies for aquaculture species for use in selective breeding programs.

Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"In partnership with CAT, we will be able to create new products and solutions that enrich the aquaculture sector and ensure sustainable farming at every level," Neogen VP of Genomics Marylinn Munson said in a statement.

In early 2020, Neogen began working with Gencove on developing new animal genomic tests. Neogen said it also previously collaborated with CAT to develop a genotyping array for North American Atlantic salmon and whiteleg shrimp.
