Marker assisted breeding
Once markers are available, they are ready to be used to select individuals with desired traits in breeding programs. We also assist you in marker assisted back-cross programs using crop specific markers. We offer several genotyping platforms for this purpose. Whether you want to screen for just one or many molecular markers, and whatever the number of samples you want to test, Spadix always has the right solution to suit your needs.
Sometimes the naturally occurring variation in your population isn’t enough. You want to study mutants in known susceptibility genes, or you want to create attractive phenotypes in ornamental plants, to name some examples. That is where mutation breeding comes in. Mutation breeding is a well established method which can be used to induce certain desired traits. If you are looking for plant mutagenesis services, then look no further! Spadix offers both targeted and non-targeted mutation approaches.
