High Throughput Genotyping Services (HTPG) is a shared KASPTM (Link to LGC KASP) genotyping platform serving all CGIAR centers and their partner programs. HTPG is established to provide low-cost and world class genotyping services to breeding programs working on the majority of CGIAR mandate crops.
Current participating crops include Maize, Rice, Wheat, Groundnut, Chickpea, Pigeon Pea, Pearl Millet, Finger Millet, Sorghum, Potato, Common Bean, Cowpea, Cassava. (Insert SNP marker panel link).
HTPG achieves low price access to fast genotyping data from third party services by aggregating volume across all crops. We work with global-level service providers with ISO certified labs to ensure that the HTPG community has access to the high-quality data return crucial to timely decision-making.
This approach puts HTPG genotyping quality and cost on par with many elite private sector companies at around US $1-5 per sample with 10+ markers, significantly cheaper than the in-house solutions currently available at many non-profit agricultural research institutions
