Event: EiB Low Density SNP Genotyping (LDSG) Launch

Time and Date: March 16th 2021, 1300- 1430 GMT

Watch the recording: 


The new LDSG service is the latest evolution from the “High Throughput Genotyping - HTPG” project, made possible through the strong partnerships and support of many CGIAR, public and private research organizations.

As CGIAR centers continue their journey toward becoming One CGIAR, the LDSG service is a trailblazing service designed to cater to the needs of new CGIAR and NARs breeding networks. The ultimate goal is to provide quality and affordable genotyping solutions to all.
