seqID offers a variety of services and technologies all focused on improving agriculture.
We use our smart phones for everything. Why not to help manage your crops? Beetle is an incredible smart phone application that allows you to diagnose leaf disease on your crops. Open the app, use the photo function inside the app to take a picture of any diseased leave in your crop. Beetle uses a sophisticated set of filtering functions and various analysis mechanisms to determine the disease that is present. Within a few seconds it returns a diagnosis to you allowing you to manage your crop effectively and efficiently.
seqID has partnered with an Indian R&D company, Tierra Seed Science to develop and genetically map a line of tomatoes resistant to Groundnut Bud Necrosis Virus (GBNV). This disease devastates tomato crops throughout Southeast Asia and, to date, there is no commercial resistant lines in existence.
Regulatory requirements for transgenic deregulation require a detailed analysis of the molecular nature of the insertion. Determining where, how and how many times a gene is inserted into a genome is critical. At seqID we have leading expertise developed in this field and honed over years of experience with major agriculture biotech research programs. Services include:
qPCR and Southern blotting analysis for copy number determination
Proprietary PCR method for flanking sequence isolation
PCR or genomic library screening and clone sequencing for integrity analysis
Whole genome sequencing using next generation sequencing technology to determine copy number and flanking sequences and insertion site (e-Southern)
T-DNA Copy number
Flanking sequences (up to 1kb) and insertion site
Any plant species with or without reference genome sequence
