Development of bovine parentage genotyping by highly multiplex next generation sequencing.

The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), USDA issued a $100,000 award for the development of Bovine Parentage Genotyping by Highly Multiplex Next Generation Sequencing.

This project is related to a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between Eureka Genomics and the Agricultural Research Service, USDA to develop a low cost, low-density marker assay (LDMA) focused on the bovine industry.

The core technology for low cost high-throughput genotyping will have applications across animal, plant and clinical markets.

"The collaboration has resulted in a very cost-effective, high-throughput approach to single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping, which is currently available for bovine parentage testing as well as for custom applications. Continuing development efforts are focused on increasing the number of SNPs that can be included in an assay, on further reducing the costs of adding SNP to assays, and on expanding the approach to include additional types of polymorphisms," said Mark Thallman, Ph.D. Research Geneticist and co-inventor of the technology, at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center.

"The success of and knowledge created during the collaboration between Eureka Genomics and the USDA on LDMA for high-throughput genotyping is being leveraged into an ongoing collaboration between Eureka Genomics and the USDA that has expanded to include many diverse areas including 16S characterization and improved sample handling for next generation sequencing. Eureka Genomics is very pleased to continue to work with the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center to improve the applications of high throughput sequence data in the agricultural setting," said Heather Koshinsky, PhD., CSO, Eureka Genomics.
