Animal and plant genomics and genetics play a significant role in vaccine & therapeutics development, breeding and selection for meat quality, milk production and pest resistance. Exactly the same principles and methods for identifying SNPs and biomarkers in human data can be applied to livestock (sheep, pig, cow and poultry) and plant data. The benefits for the agricultural industry are enormous.
At Fios Genomics we offer a range of services specifically tailored to animal and plant genomic data from the custom design and annotation of new microarrays, exploration of gene expression profiles (microarray or next-generation sequence based), and/or linkage/association analysis of a trait within a population. We can use our experience and expertise to assist in the discovery and characterisation of discriminating biomarkers for the biological parameter of interest.
