KASP™ or Kompetitive Allele Specific Polymerase chain reaction has been used by genetic scientists around the world for the last 21 years to revolutionise agriculture breeding. KASP enables highly accurate bi-allelic scoring of SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) and indels (insertions/deletions) at specific loci across a wide range of genomic DNA samples including those of complex genomes.  
To celebrate and applaud the work of the geneticists and researchers who have used KASP to further the world’s understanding of plant genomics, we have gathered a small collection of research papers from the thousands of peer-reviewed and published research papers that reference KASP
