Agrigenomics, the application of genomics to agriculture, has and will continue to drive sustainable productivity and provide solutions to the challenges posed by populations around the world. CD Genomics is committed to providing our global customers with long read sequencing solutions that enable you to discover and utilize agrigenomics insights from data of unparalleled quality and detail.
Ensuring that agricultural production can meet the food needs of a world characterized by continued population growth and the increasing impact of climate change is an urgent challenge. Genomics has a role to play in maximizing the utility, diversity, and yield of resources and contributing to sustained food security in the future. Agrigenomics is a rich field of structural and functional genomics studies targeting plant genomes, including crops, and specific life activities of plant growth and development, which in turn elucidates the genetic control networks and mechanisms of plant life activities. In addition, agrigenomics involves the breeding and maintenance of conducted. Agrigenomics has been contributing to the advancement of crop development for decades. From reference genome sequencing to genotyping for genome-wide association studies to genome prediction, advances in technology and applications have led to breakthroughs in crop improvement. These innovations have produced superior varieties with agriculturally desirable traits, including high yields, stress tolerance, and insect resistance. However, the environments in which crops are grown are increasingly vulnerable to changes in conditions such as weather patterns or ecological instability. The development of long-read sequencing technologies can facilitate the adaptation of crops to this rapidly changing world.
