Genotyping by Sequencing (GBS)

GBS is the cost-effective method of choice for genome wide SNP discovery without prior knowledge of the genome sequence. GBS enables simultaneous genotyping in multiple DNA samples. It combines restriction enzyme-mediated complexity reduction with the high-throughput sequencing capacity of Illumina platforms to score random markers across an entire genome.

GBS enables finding thousands of markers in any sample number, from a handful of samples for a few million reads to thousands of samples multiplexed on high-throughput NGS platforms.

GBS is available at our associate facility Novogene Singapore. Service includes library preparation, NGS sequencing and bioinformatic support for any species, including sequence pre-processing, alignment and variant analysis.
