Agrigenomics

It represents specific field of the genetic research focused on the study of plant and animal genomes with the final goal of generating agronomic advancements, such as improving crop quality and abundance, increasing the resistance of plants against pathogens, therefore limiting the use of herbicides, improving the efficiency of plant/herd breeding and increasing the natural tolerance to abiotic stresses, such as drought or frost.
Solution of specific agronomic problems will help maintaining an efficient food supply chain, therefore addressing alarming challenges such as changing climate and exponential population growth while at the same time reducing the environmental impact associated with farming practices.
With its ability to generate billions of sequenced DNA bases per experiment, NGS offers the ideal solution to boost agronomic industry production.
