A modern approach to genotyping

Improving genetics for traits like higher yield, drought tolerance, and disease susceptibility relies on translating genome wide information into screening and prediction tools for efficient breeding. Genotyping arrays, while cost-effective, only produce a small fraction of genomic information and require significant investment to update with new markers.

Combining Gencove’s low-pass sequencing, imputation pipelines, and advanced cloud analytics tools, provides a straightforward approach to imputing functional variant genotypes without the complexities of variant selection, probe design, and call training associated with developing SNP arrays.



Improve prediction accuracy to select the best in breed with whole genome data that are fully backward compatible as you update your markers.
