The identification and genotyping are essential in the discovery of genetics variations, specially in the studies of the populations and pathologies.
These analyses are extremely informative for many key scientific activities:
- Food traceability.
- Biomarker development and validation (screening/diagnostics, functional genomics, trait prediction models, etc.).
- Studies of genetic diversity and evolution (phylogeny, etc.).
- Identification of individuals (criminals, bodies) or links between individuals (paternity tests).
- Genomic selection (agriculture, animal husbandry, etc.).
