The study of key traits such as plant growth and development, stress response, hybrid vigor, and reproduction at the genomic level will be essential for agronomic advancement. Though new focus on agriculture has provided a large amount of new genomic information and tools, there still remains a challenge of working with non-model, highly varied species. LC Sciences’ innovative products and comprehensive services are based on in-house developed parallel-synthesis and targeted sequencing technologies that offer unprecedented flexibility and customization capability.
