Exponential population growth and a changing climate create unique challenges for those working to maintain the food supply. To overcome this, many are turning to science. Agricultural genomics, or agrigenomics (the application of genomics in agriculture), has and will continue to help drive sustainable productivity and offer solutions to the mounting challenges of feeding the world’s growing population.
Through the constant development of new products and applications, Illumina is continually innovating ways to help agricultural researchers. Our agrigenomics technologies help plant and animal breeders and researchers identify desirable traits, leading to healthier and more productive crops and livestock.
Today’s agricultural genomics researchers have many technologies at their disposal. Both array-based SNP genotyping and sequencing are used as discovery and screening tools to aid in breeding decisions.
Whether you are conducting a large-scale Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) or providing genetic services as part of a commercial laboratory, Illumina combines industry-leading data quality with the content flexibility to match any application. Learn more about Plant and Animal Genotyping »
NGS is particularly useful in agricultural research, where genomes can be complex and prior knowledge scarce. NGS is also used to identify pathogens. It allows tracking of microbial or viral adaptation over short periods of time, both in the laboratory and in the environment. Learn more about Plant and Animal Sequencing »
