The application of genomics in agriculture is contributing to the development of sustainable practices in the cultivation of crops and breeding of livestock, in an effort to meet the food and nutritional demands of an expanding population. Genetic traits linked to desirable phenotypes such as optimal muscle mass in cattle, can be selected for, as can traits linked to drought resistance in crops.

Genomics Application in Agrigenomics

  • Next-Generation Sequencing technologies allow for marker-assisted selection of desirable traits, which informs breeding and cultivation programmes.
  • Genome sequencing can be applied at a population level to perform pathogen screening and ensure crop health.
  • Metagenomics methods can be used to characterise soil microbial communities and optimise this for crop health and yield.
