Following variant discovery by next-generation sequencing, Illumina will design a custom SNP array for the project.

Researchers studying the bird identified evolutionary changes in its genome that may help explain the bird's unique nocturnal adaptation.

Illumina has become the dominant player in the cattle genotyping field, while array vendors are beginning to envision a future where every animal is genotyped at birth.

The program will provide €52 million per year to the suckler beef sector to accelerate genetic improvement in the national herd in Ireland.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Eureka Genomics today announced an agreement with animal health firm Zoetis for use of Eureka's next-generation genotyping technology in its products.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Ireland plans to pump €23 million ($31.1 million) next year into a program that will seek to use genomics to improve beef cattle while boosting efficiency and profits in the cattle industry.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The genomes of big cats like tigers, lions, and snow leopards show hints of genetic changes that allow them to subsist on a largely carnivorous diet as well as other adaptations, researchers from South Korea's Personal Genomics Institute, BGI-Shenzhen in China, and els
