About: Over the past few years, the demand for genotyping in plant breeding has rapidly increased. Automation in both genotyping hardware and software has become essential to deal with demand increase and process at high throughput while ensuring quality, project turnaround times and resource efficiency. This talk gives a view on the hurdles and challenges and how the Marker Technology and Genomics group addresses them.

qPCR in seed health: a QC-driven approach

About: Xanthomonas campestris is a bacterial species that causes a variety of plant diseases of cruciferous crops and can result in devastating losses of yield and quality.

In order to rapidly identify if a Brassica seed lot is infected with the seed pathogens Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris or Xanthomonas campestris pv. raphani rapid automated screening needs to be put in place. With a qPCR based workflow, automation is required to allow for rapid throughput. AI-based software can automatically call the curves, calculate the Cq-values and determine the seed lot quality – combined with quality control registration of the multiplex PCR.
