relnofollowArrayMAGICa at the Plant and Animal Genome PAG conference in San Diego The new offering provides ultrahighdensity single nucleotide polymorphism SNP genotyping at a low cost per datapoint making this valuable technology more accessible for a wide range of agricultural applications pblockquotep idpullquotepblockquote p The new service is designed to make highquality SNP genotyping affordable and available as needed ArrayMAGIC customers will benefit from a simple yet comprehensive tissue to knowledge experience tapping into the expertise of all three participating companies To streamline the process a dedicated website will be launched to advise customers on how to send samples to Macrogen Corp A novel costeffective sequencing library prep method provided by iGenomX is employed to create an ultralow coverage sequence dataset for each sample NRGene then leverages its extensive proprietary database and analytical tools to impute a highresolution SNP set from this data p p ArrayMAGIC is unprecedented in that it combines the technology and capabilities of NRGene Macrogen and iGenomX yielding a superior service for highthroughput genotyping at a low cost said Guy Kol NRGenes Senior Vice President Product and Strategic Alliances It will initially be available for use on soy and maize but were working hard to expand to more organisms later this year p p As global demand for food continues to rise scientific advances are needed to maximize agricultural production Understanding the genomic makeup and traitspecific SNP markers of crops and livestock is an important part of the solution However a highquality product can be prohibitively expensive for smaller businesses or for less established crop and animal programs p p Clients have come to trust Macrogen NRGene and iGenomX in their respective areas of expertise said Ryan Kim the CEO of Macrogen Corp By bringing these foundational genomic companies together to create a onestop solution to screening the entire genome clients will have access to extremely high quality genotyping at a fraction of the cost of whole genome sequencing This collaboration will surely further the optimization of sequencingbased genotyping tool for researchers p p bLearn more about ArrayMAGIC ba referrerpolicyunsafeurl targetblank
