KASP™ Genotyping Technology Accelerates Poultry Breeding Program at Hy-Line International
16 Oct 2014
The Hy-Line International poultry breeding program aims to identify multiple SNPs within genetic regions of interest that encode specific traits. Learn how KASP™ genotyping technology from LGC has provided scientists at Hy-Line with a high-throughput genotyping method for the detection of SNP variations, such as those within ovocalyxin-32 (OCX32), a candidate gene for selection for eggshell traits. KASP technology enables the company to individually test thousands of samples, for hundreds of carefully selected SNPs, at a rate of over 100,000 tests per day.
