The EiB mid-density genotyping service is a DArTAg genotyping method primarily suited to genomic selection applications, but that can also be used for diversity studies, material fingerprinting or background recovery in marker assisted selection (MAS) to complement low-density genotyping.
The service is targeted at CGIAR and NARS breeding institutions, aggregating demand across institutions to offer genotyping at a cost of US $10-11 per sample, and a turnaround time of 10-15 days.
Compared to the EiB low-density genotyping service, which is recommended as cost-effective up to 200 markers, mid-density is applied to assays of up to 4,000 markers. New users should always consult with EiB to confirm the best service for their use cases.
