The 39th International Society for Animal Genetics Conference will be held in Cape Town, South Africa on 2-7 July 2023. They will give an excellent opportunity to bring together outstanding scientists, policy makers and professionals from interdisciplinary animal genetics fields to share the latest developments.
Illumina will have booth with our authorized channel partner in South Africa, Separations. We will hold our workshop on 4 July 2023.
Date: 4 July 2023
Time: 5:30 - 6:30 PM
Speaker: Andre Eggen, Associate Principal Regional Segment Marketing Manager, Illumina
Talk: The genomic revolution through NGS and High Throughput Genotyping is only in its infancy in agriculture research and industry
Over the past 20 years, genomics has taken a growing role in agriculture, from sequencing reference genomes to genotyping for genome-wide association studies to genomic prediction, advances in technology and applications have led to breakthroughs in plant and animal science and food production: based on Next Generation Sequencing and high throughput genotyping using SNP arrays, genomic technologies can be considered as a molecular microscope, finding its way in many different area of agriculture research and in industry.
The workshop will cover how Illumina’s genomics technologies have been used and applied in different areas, from whole genome sequencing to high throughput genotyping, from genomic breeding to biodiversity characterization, from food science to climate change challenges and how Illumina technologies will continue to deliver best in class solutions for agrigenomics.
