Gondwana Genomics is now accelerating plantation performance through long-awaited genomic selection (GS). Advanced GS screening technology, developed through 10 years of plantation research, is now unlocking the genetic potential of trees. And it is being used for commercial growers right now.
Pioneering Plant Genomics
Gondwana Genomics is a global leader in molecular tree breeding services in commercial applications. With over 10 years of experience in genomics research, our core strength lies in the application of our exclusive molecular marker technology. Our markers can help you to maximise yield, while maintaining genetic diversity in your breeding populations. Genomic selection (GS) is paving the way for breeders to achieve future improvements in commercial traits, to address disease threats, and to adapt to changing commercial priorities.
Gondwana Genomics can provide a complete set of tree improvement services to support your existing breeding programs. This includes sourcing marker-identified elite families from the seed orchards of our partners, analysing genetic data from trials, and advising on genetic improvement strategies.
Our breeding services are tailored to meet your commercial objectives and unique challenges. Genomic selection is paving the way for breeders to achieve future improvements in commercial traits, to address disease threats, and to adapt to changing commercial priorities.
Application of Markers in Tree Breeding
Traditional Breeding Support
Our next generation testing platform provides the full picture for your breeding program.
You can breed with absolute confidence through family pedigree reconstruction, identification of paternal parents, full sib and half sib families and estimation of inbreeding.
Using our exclusive DNA fingerprinting services, you will see labelling and other identification errors eliminated from your breeding programs and seed orchards.
When you’re backed by the expertise of Gondwana Genomics, you can be certain you’ve identified the correct tree—every time.
Custom Marker Discovery
We can help you swiftly discover markers of specific interest or benefit to your company. Our marker discovery pipeline greatly reduces the time it takes to discover these key markers and gives you a competitive edge. You can apply new markers for important traits in your breeding program sooner.
The analysis you need,
without the wait.
For the ﬁrst time in commercial forestry, GS allows you to deﬁnitively know which of your trees have positive traits when they are just small seedlings. You will see the commercial beneﬁts sooner. Our next-generation targeted genotyping platform has simple and easy DNA collection requirements, just a single leaf.
