Shenzhen, China, 27 August 2021 - MGI and Molbreeding Biotech Co., Ltd. (Molbreeding) officially formed strategic cooperation in Molecular Breeding.
Under the partnership, the two parties will join hands to develop more molecular breeding applications and products based on MGI's DNBSEQ-T7 ultra-high throughput sequencing platform, to promote the innovation and industrialization of animal and plant molecular breeding in China.
Enhancing genetic detection capacity with lower cost to improve the efficiency of animal and plant molecular breeding
With the continuous industrialization of molecular breeding from scientific research, breeders have higher requirements for genetic detection capacity, cost and cycle. High-throughput sequencing can be applied throughout the whole process from genome mapping to gene mining and molecular breeding, which can improve breeding efficiency by a hundred to even a thousand times.
To accommodate different application requirements, MGI has independently developed a full range of high, medium and low throughput sequencers. MGI's proprietary DNBSEQ™ sequencing platform, DNBSEQ-T7, supports 4 flow cells and output 6TB of high-quality data per day, and can be widely applicable to Whole Genome Sequencing, Deep Exome Sequencing, Transcriptome Sequencing, Molecular Breeding and more.
DNBSEQ-T7 Ultra High-throughput Gene Sequencer
Powered by DNBSEQ-T7, Molbreeding will continue to explore in genome selective breeding of animal and plant, backcross breeding, marker-assisted selection, identification, and evaluation of germplasm resources to optimize service cycle, improve detection capacity, reduce detection cost for better industrialization of molecular breeding. With the high speed, flexible and ultra-high throughput advantages, the arrival of DNBSEQ-T7 will further strength Molbreeding's capacity on product development, high-throughput and low-cost genetic detection, helping Molbreeding become one of the best molecular breeding service providers in China.
From high-throughput to ultra-high-throughput, MGI platform fully promotes the industrialization of molecular breeding
"Before the arrival of DNBSEQ-T7, we were already the user of MGISEQ-2000 high-throughput sequencing platform. Thanks to its flexible sequencing throughput, excellent data quality and stable operational performance, we are pleased to add DNBSEQ-T7 to better meet the needs of molecular breeding industrialization." Said Zhang Jiannan, General Manager of Molbreeding.
