The genetic testing options for animal health and livestock management have traditionally been extremely limited in scope and prohibitively expensive, compromising the ability for routine or en mass genotyping of animals. As such, a new technology is desperately needed to allow broad genotyping of low density traits, such as parentage, for a significantly reduced cost.
Addressing genetic testing needs for livestock and basic animal research, the Eureka Genotyping Solutions has broad application in Animal Health and Parentage. The technology offers low-cost testing that could be used for parentage, genetic defects, quantitative traits and marker-assisted management of feedlots. Eureka Genomics has developed a commercial panel for bovine parentage screening in conjunction with the USDA and will be broadening the scope of the Eureka Genotyping Solutions portfolio for animal health.
From optimizing traits in commercial agricultural crops to understanding plant biology, Genetics testing has an integral role. The genetic testing options for plant science have traditionally been extremely limited in scope and prohibitively expensive, compromising the ability for routine or en mass genotyping of plants. As such, a new technology is desperately needed to allow broad genotyping of low density markers for a significantly reduced cost.
Addressing genetic testing needs for plant research, the Eureka Genotyping Solutions has broad application in AgBio and other plant research projects. The technology offers low-cost, high value testing for traits such as yield, environmental resilience and nutritional value for any plant species of interest, including tetraploid species. Eureka Genomics has developed a commercial panel for comprehensive screening of barley in conjunction with the James Hutton Institute and will be broadening the scope of the Eureka Genotyping Solutions portfolio for plant science.
Eureka Genotyping Solutions provide an improved and affordable alternative to traditional technologies for profiling hundreds of SNPs (or other genetic markers) in hundreds to thousands of samples using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). The assay can be broadly applied to the detection of SNPs, InDels, CNV and methylation and is compatible with DNA or RNA from virtually any organism, even when genome information may be incomplete. The Eureka Genotyping Solutions provides rapid, accurate, cost-effective answers by combining discriminatory power of hybridization and ligation, focused high throughput sequencing and rigorously designed statistical analysis.
Eureka Genomics offers access to Eureka Genotyping Solutions as either standard or custom designed panels and testing can be performed either as a service through our expert scientific team or in your own lab (with technical support from EG to get you started). The assay is NGS instrument agnostic, so regardless of the platform you have invested resources into or upgrade to in the future the Eureka Genotyping Solutions can be adapted to ensure easy assimilation and rapid data generation for your research or clinical goals. And because NGS is used to provide focused information on only the sequences of interest (and not the rest of the genome), the cost per genotype is extremely low.
