What we do
At Breeding Insight, we level the playing field for routine use of genomics insights, creating new opportunities for specialty breeders to adopt tools, technologies and methods from basic research. We integrate phenomics (trait analysis), genomics (genotypic data), data management, and software tools to help breeders increase rates of genetic gain, which results in more healthy, nutritious, and sustainable food for consumers.
The Food Supply Chain
How do foods we eat get to our table?
What do we choose to eat? Why do we choose to eat it? Click below to learn how Breeding Insight helps breeders adopt technologies to provide new and improved cultivars for our food supply.
Some of our most treasured and enjoyable food products come from specialty crops. We depend on these products being readily available. And yet, these crops are facing huge hurdles in a rapidly changing world. Plant and animal breeders are an essential step of our modern food supply.
Our Proven Solutions
We combine genomics and informatics to deliver powerful breeding solutions
DNA markers provide guideposts for alfalfa breeders
Modern-day travelers rely on maps to navigate to places they need to go. Likewise, modern-day plant breeders rely on DNA maps in their crops to breed improved cultivars. Needed tools are rapidly being constructed and tested to assemble an Alfalfa Breeder’s Toolbox that will be available to public and private alfalfa breeders for crop improvement.
