Genotyping and Sequencing Overview

As a world leader in dryland agri-food systems, ICRISAT has been at the forefront of research and innovation, driving sustainable solutions to address the challenges faced by farmers and communities in semi-arid regions.

Our advances have been underscored by genome and gene characterization in enhancing crop productivity, resilience, and nutritional value. An experienced team of scientists leads our state-of-the-art facilities, which provide cutting-edge genome, transcriptome and gene characterization services tailored to the diverse needs of the agricultural research community, agribusinesses, and other stakeholders.

Our genomic services also utilize advanced technologies and methodologies to analyze genetic variation, enable precise identification, characterization, and utilization of desirable traits in crop species.

Whether you require whole-genome sequencing/re-sequencing, transcriptome analysis, marker-assisted selection, whole genome or targeted genotyping, our comprehensive services ensure accurate and reliable results to accelerate your breeding programs and improve crop performance.

By leveraging our expertise in dryland agri-food systems, we understand the unique challenges farmers face in water-limited environments. We are well-equipped to help you choose the best genomic strategies for your goals. As you navigate through the Genomics, Pre-breeding and Bio-informatics section of the website, you will find detailed information about our genome and gene characterization services ranging from genotyping, whole genome sequencing and re-sequencing, transcriptome sequencing and data analysis services, including the technologies and platforms we employ, our quality assurance processes, and the range of crops and traits we specialize in. We also provide access to our vast genetic resources, databases, and bioinformatics tools to support your research.

We provide an initial interactive consultation process with our partners, collaborators and clients to ensure we provide the most cost-effective and scientifically sound solutions.
