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
CRISPR-Cas9 is a recently developed genome editing technique that allows scientists to perform precise genomic manipulation quickly and conveniently. This technology has a vast spectrum of applications. As with any molecular biology technique, it is crucial that the obtained results have high levels of specificity. This review highlights recent publications that demonstrate the use of genomic technologies and high-throughput sequencing in CRISPR-Cas9 experiments for checking specificity and off-target effects across the genome.Access PDF
