Neogen Australasia offers DNA testing solutions for stud breeders, commercial producers and goat researchers in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
The Goat SNP Parentage test was developed using a global dataset of more than 4000 animals representing more than 140 breeds. It is based on a highly informative SNP panel of ~200 SNPs that are readily applicable for parentage and sex assessment, and assignment for a large number of worldwide goat breeds
SNP information is applied for parentage verification and is much larger and more accurate than microsatellites. Proof of pedigree can increase the genetic value of one’s herd by identifying kids with high breeding worth and reducing the risk of inbreeding. It’s also a way to maintain up-to-date records with full parentage on young stock.
