The ag-bio giant has also taken an equity position in privately held, Rehovot, Israel-based TargetGene.

US regulators are to discuss how to oversee crops modified using new gene-editing techniques.

Some customers have already been able to access the low-cost, low-plex genotyping solution as a service since Affy acquired Eureka last year.

The team will employ reverse vaccinology coupled with high-throughput genomics approaches, such as RNA-seq, to deliver the new vaccines within four years.

Researchers plan to identify the plant's genetic diversity and evolutionary history in order to increase production and nutritional value.

The German startup is building a business around providing bioinformatics analysis services to large agricultural biotechnology companies.

The effort brings together gene banks, researchers, plant breeders, and big data experts, all of whom will use genomics to unlock crop diversity.

 

Access to the full genome map is expected to boost efforts to develop more resistant, higher-yield varieties of wheat.

The team used arrays to genotype several hundred lines of a multiparental wheat population and create a method to estimate the contribution of each parent in the evolved population.

To better understand the relationship between sea lice populations at salmon farms across the North Atlantic, as well as to identify genomic regions that could potentially shed light on pesticide resistance, researchers recently designed a 6,000-SNP genotyping microarray focused on Lepeophtheirus salmonis, the salmon louse.
