LGC symposium 1 - Partnering to deliver key genomic solutions for breeding and development

KASP genotyping is a key technology used for a wide array of applications. It is found in the world’s biggest genomic institutions, both academic and commercial, where it is used for projects ranging from simple low-throughput genotyping to large scale, high-throughput breeding programs where millions of data points plus are required daily. The adoption of KASP genotyping in such scales is testament to its robustness, its ease of design and its almost infinite scalability. The KASP chemistry has now been developed for detection in real-time, which makes it one of the most versatile genotyping and quantification technologies on the market. This symposium includes testament from world-renowned scientists using KASP chemistry, for applications including marker-assisted selection for pulse crop breeding (Prof. Kirstin Bett – University of Saskatchewan) where the versatility of KASP genotyping is ideal for routine breeding applications. Extending the benefits of KASP chemistry to quantification and real-time with the same versatility benefits enabled a project to be undertaken in partnership with Dr. Wim van Haeringen (Van Haeringen Laboratories B.V). Here, qKASP chemistry has been used to develop a panel of diagnostic tests for veterinary pathogen detection. Development of such tests may also be of benefit to many other researchers in widely differing fields with a need for genomics solutions that work consistently. The final speaker Dr. Jonathan Curry (LGC, Senior Scientist) will introduce the open workshops topics that cover how the quality of data is ensured using simple hints and tips for small and large scale projects alike.
