Applying Flex-Seq technology to accelerate livestock breeding programmes 

The quality of livestock breeders and farmers stock directly impacts on their profitability. Selection of stock by phenotyping has helped farmers improve herd quality over time. 

In this application note, we explain how the use of genomics for selection can accelerate livestock breeding programmes. We describe why Flex-Seq’s hybridised dual probe targeted genotyping by sequencing platform animal panels are the panel of choice for many breeders.

The advantages of Flex-SeqTM over amplicon-based sequencing are also outlined, including the additional designed in benefits of diversity tolerance, data uniformity, ability to deliver highly-specific on target data. Alongside this we demonstrate the cost saving benefits of the workflow simplicity and the inherent targeting flexibility.
