path to genetic improvement

AQUAArray is an innovative line of genotyping tools that incorporates novel genetic marker information to advance genetic improvement in both farmed and wild aquatic species. Our tools support a wide range of applications, from understanding population genetics to selecting for commercially important traits.

WHO IS THE AQUAArray FOR?

Aquaculture producers of emerging species

Access industry expertise and gain support to develop affordable tools to build a foundation for success in genetic improvement.

AQUACULTURE PRODUCERS OF ESTABLISHED SPECIES

Increase precision and genetic gain by improving commercially relevant traits in each generation with cost-effective tools.

RESEARCHERS

Access affordable tools and receive comprehensive data analysis to facilitate your research.

FISHERIES and conservation managers

Explore genetic diversity and environmental impact on aquatic species for monitoring, management, and conservation purposes.

WHY USE SNPs?

SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) are a type of genetic marker. Their abundance across the genome enables reliable and accurate scoring, enabling data transfer between laboratories.
