As of 2022, this work is delivered primarily through CGIAR Initiative on Breeding Resources, Work Package 2.
Faster and cheaper genotyping and sequencing services have opened up the wealth of diversity in crop and animal varieties for study, and when applied effectively have the potential to accelerate the rate at which new varieties can be developed.
The genotyping/sequencing module supports Platform members to access user-validated, application-appropriate genotyping services and technologies by:
- Aggregating demand and brokering access lower-cost, user validated genotyping services.
- Documenting use cases and incorporating expert knowledge for users to be accessed through the Platform Toolbox.
The Bioinformatics, biometrics and data management module supports users to manage and apply genotypic data in breeding programs.
Important notice: Price adjustment for genotyping shared services from August 2023.
