Delta Genomics is working with multiple industry groups on an initiative to make SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) panels more flexible, affordable, and less time consuming, without compromising accuracy.

The panels are used to identify animal traits like feed efficiency and carcass quality. Eight partners are now using SNP technology for parentage on a regular basis, while three new partners are working towards that goal. This has helped not-for-profit Delta Genomics add more than 15,000 samples to its biobank. The data will be used to identify more traits of interest.
