Our portfolio of GeneSeek® Genomic Profiler™ (GGP) tools provide an accurate evaluation of genetic merit, genomic-wide selection, comparative genetic studies, and excellent imputation accuracy. The GGP portfolio is utilized by dairy bull studs, breed associations and researchers, alike.
Accurate evaluations. Dairy bull studs and breed associations utilize GeneSeek Genomic Profilers—the international gold standard for dairy performance testing—due to its custom content and innovative design. These custom GGP BeadChips provide the most accurate prediction of elite breeding animals available on the market today and are accepted by national evaluation organizations such as the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB) in the U.S. and the Canadian Dairy Network (CDN) in Canada.
Complete portfolio. Custom GeneSeek Genomic Profilers are available in various densities to meet expectations of price point and product content. Starting with the GGP uLD, a powerful imputation tool with approximately 7,000 SNPs, it is the ideal tool for cost-effective genomic testing on commercial dairy heifers. Next the GGP LD, features more than 30,000 SNPs with additional content for disease and trait relevant SNPs. Finally, the GGP HD150K features nearly 150,000 SNPs for uniform SNP coverage for the most accurate evaluations of genetic merit and maximum additional content available.
Smart design. A majority of the SNPs were specifically chosen for high minor allele frequency values and uniform genome coverage for a majority of the Bos taurus and several of the Bos indicus breeds.
