Next generation genomics technology is playing a significant role in improving the outcomes of genomic tools used in livestock farming, cultivation of crops, selection of quality seeds with improved traits etc. Molecular markers are now key components of crop improvement programs, and are applied to identify cultivars, analyze genetic diversity, construct linkage maps and identify quantitative trait loci (QTL). Applied Biosystems AxiomTM Microarray offers several advantages such as custom design capabilities with fastest turn-around time, zero SNP dropouts and highly automated genotyping analysis which are key to successful deployment of livestock and crop breeding projects. This presentation introduces the Axiom microarray platform and its key features followed by technology advantages with respect to the custom design process. The presentation will also feature successful implementation of Axiom microarray technology that has enabled scientists attain their objectives for breeding programs.
