The Biosciences eastern and central AfricaHub (BecA) provides affordable high throughput SSR genotyping services to IBP clients, mainly in Africa. BecA prefers to receive DNA or leaf tissue samples (not seed) from clients. The genotyping cost directly relates to the number of data points, which results from the number of SSR markers and the number of samples.
