Agricultural genomics, or agrigenomics (the application of genomics in agriculture), has and will continue to drive sustainable productivity and offer solutions to the mounting challenges of feeding the global population. Using modern technology, farmers, breeders, and researchers can easily identify the genetic markers linked to desirable traits, informing cultivation and breeding decisions.
We are dedicated to advancing the future of agrigenomics through product development, collaborations with consortia, and interaction with the community. Our microarray and next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies are helping researchers and breeders develop healthier and more productive crops and livestock.
Researchers are using genotyping and next-generation sequencing technologies to study agricultural species and model organisms.Learn More
Agrigenomics empowers many applications in commercial agriculture, including trait screening, marker-assisted backcrossing, and parentage testing. Our technologies are helping researchers and breeders evaluate and predict genetic merit in agricultural species, leading to improved selection practices.Learn More
We simplify the consortium process, bringing researchers and breeders together to develop agrigenomics products for their species of interest. Members pool resources, Illumina coordinates, and everyone benefits.Learn More
Illumina is dedicated to making tangible contributions to the agricultural community. We are committed to enabling groundbreaking research that aims to reduce hunger, malnutrition, and poverty around the globe.Learn More
“This is the most exciting time to be in genomics,” says Charlie Johnson from Texas A&M University. He, along with Chris Austin and Larry Croft from Deakin University in Australia and Ryo Koyanagi from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) in Japan, discuss how the NovaSeq System is making large-scale plant and animal sequencing projects possible.
Perform low-cost genotyping by sequencing of any animal or plant species with the TruSeq Genotype Ne Kit. By surveying up to 5000 markers simultaneously, this approach benefits many agricultural applications, including parentage studies, purity testing, and marker-assisted selection.View Product
