NEW YORK — Food and animal safety firm Neogen said today that it has partnered with Gencove on the development of new animal genomics tests.
Neogen said that the deal will enable it to include Gencove’s low-pass whole-genome sequencing technology with its GeneSeek Genomic Profiler genotyping arrays. Additional terms were not disclosed.
"Partnering with Neogen, the largest genomic solutions service provider in agriculture worldwide, will give both our organizations the opportunity to advance the agricultural genomics industry by leading in the implementation of new technologies," Joe Pickrell, cofounder and CEO of New York City-based Gencove, said in a statement.
Early last year, Neogen acquired Canadian animal genomics firm Delta Genomics Centre. Other recent acquisitions for the Lansing, Michigan-based company include the assets of The University of Queensland Animal Genetics Laboratory, Brazilian animal genomics lab Deoxi Biotecnologia, and California-based animal genomics business Scidera Genomics.
