Marker Assisted Selection

Marker-assisted selection (MAS) uses markers linked to specific traits to quickly and effectively select plants carrying those traits in segregating populations. This process can be done for a single trait or for several traits at the same time (for example, pyramiding of resistance genes). MAS provides quick and accurate genotyping of progenies for traits that are typically laborious to phenotype accurately (for example, grain quality).

The IBP Genotyping Services provide access to cost-effective genotyping laboratories.
